The third volume in the series of authoritative Methuen editions of Strindberg's Collected Plays This volume brings together Strindberg's first great play, Master Olof (1872): 'Michael Meyer's agile translation of a flawed idealist who shrinks from the logic of his own actions and puts compromise before martyrdom' (Guardian); Creditors (1888), portraying a marriage chillingly close to his own: 'one of the finest of his plays ...holds one in its icy grip' (Sunday Telegraph); and To Damascus (Part I) (1898), 'a play so packed with ideas and invective that it makes most contemporary dramas seem trivial' (Scotsman)."Michael Meyer is the translator most actors turn to when seeking a definitive text" (Sunday Times)
