Abstract

Indisputably, Strindberg's works are marked by an abundance of anti-Semitic and generally racist traces and signs, not the least of these being his sometimes violent misogyny. These troubling attitudes may be read as such or seen in their historical context, but they may also provide us with a key to certain basic strategies in his writing: the display of elitist - rather than antidemocratic - ideas that went against the tide, with a view to incarnating the figure of a fritänkare, heretical, invincible, solitary intellectual, who "has no regard for what is old-fashioned" and hence takes an avant-garde position against all accepted tradition and convention.
