Together with Norway's Henrik Ibsen and Russia's Anton Chekhov, Sweden's August Strindberg (1849-1912) has long been recognized as a leading dramatist of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. Of these three, Strindberg has proven the most seminal to the development of modern drama. In the 1890s, nourished by the nationalistic spirit of that period, a few of his historical plays also succeeded on stage. The neat pattern is disturbed by the fact that The Father actually has much in common with the subjective dramas in the post-Inferno period, whereas conversely The Dance of Death has much in common with the plays of the preInferno period.

The pre-Inferno plays are naturalistic in form and are insistently concerned with sexual and class struggles bringing to the philosophy of naturalism a psychological realism that validates his characters as among the most excitingly credible in modern drama. The post-Inferno plays reflect Strindberg’s experience with mysticism and a variety of religions, along with his preoccupation in later life with guilt, expiation, and reconciliation. Strindberg’s personal conflicts were to expand during the Inferno period and were reflected in the religious and historical plays produced between 1897 and 1901. In those years, the playwright turned to mysticism and allegory, as in the Damascus trilogy.

In The Blue Book Strindberg wrote: I have said that the child is a little criminal, incapable of self-guidance, but I love children all the same. Strindberg created a rich repertoire of images of children, employing the ones that were similar to his prede-cessors and those extremely innovative for his time, which makes the author a precursor of the turn-of-the-century modernism. - ‘The return of the long lost son’ is a prominent motif and image-type in the post-Inferno period. The post-Inferno imagery of evil children is in line with the child-image perspectives in drama closer to the end of the nineteenth century, when . he children be-come more bizarre. purity has become a strange quality and no longer spiritually superior; innocence is more a perversio.
