Description

August Strindberg, David Mel Paul (Translation).

August Strindberg, David Mel Paul (Translation). Margareta Paul (Translation). The Roofing Ceremony is a powerful, ultimately hopeful short novel that will revise the narrow view of August Strindberg as merely a misogynist and the gloomiest of Scandinavian writers. This novel has an inwardness, irreducibly and complexly human, that looks back to Tolstoy's The Death of Ivan Ilyich and forward to Samuel Beckett's Krapp's Last Tape.

The publication of ''The Roofing Ceremony'' should reinforce our sense of his being a contemporary: the story, which was written in 1906, not only anticipates Joyce's use of stream of consciousness in ''Ulysses,'' but it also looks forward to Samuel Beckett's exploration of memory and time in ''Krapp's Last Tape.

Paul Cefalu's study explores the relationship between moral character and religious conversion in the poetry and prose of Sidney, Spenser, Donne, Herbert, and Milton, as well as in early modern English Conformist and Puritan sermons, theological tracts, and philosophical treatises.

World Literature in translation. What others are saying. The Hilltop skewers the complex, often absurd reality of life in Israel, the West Bank settlers, and the nation's relationship to the United States. Two brothers and their differing views play out on an Israeli settlement in the West Bank. The Hilltop is recommended to all readers who enjoy a good story grounded in current events.

The Roofing Ceremony is a powerful, ultimately hopeful short novel that will revise the narrow view of August Strindberg as merely a misogynist and the gloomiest of Scandinavian writers. This novel has an inwardness, irreducibly and complexly human, that looks back to Tolstoy's The Death of Ivan Ilyich and forward to Samuel Beckett's Krapp's Last Tape.

Published in Sweden in 1906 and never before translated into English, The Roofing Ceremony (Taklagsöl) anticipates in its turbulent intensity the chamber plays Strindberg was soon to write. It is about a dying man, once an explorer but now a museum curator, who reviews his tumultuous life aloud as he drifts in and out of a morphine-induced sleep. Sometimes fragmentary, sometimes episodic, this impressionistic monologue builds up a vivid and nuanced portrait of the curator and his estranged wife, chronicling passionately but also humorously the descent of their marriage from island idyll into bitter comedy into tragic estrangement. Strindberg anticipated in this work the modern psychological novel and the technique of stream-of-consciousness.

A curious, brief narrative Strindberg meant to incorporate into The Roofing Ceremony but never did is also included in this book, as well as a story called The Silver Lake written in 1898, which also appears in English for the first time. A museum curator, summering on a Baltic island, seeks out a forbidden lake and shares its enchantment with his wife and children. But his marriage is doomed, and when he returns to the lake alone, its mystery turns sinister.
