9781870041959: The People of Hemso: A Story from the Islands (World of Discovery)

A feat of straightforward folksy storytelling, The People of Hemso is set on an island in Strindberg's beloved Stockholm archipelago. Written during a difficult period in exile from Sweden, the novel paradoxically has a strong sense of place. Mrs. Flod, a widow of some means, hires Carlsson to run the farm on the island. As a newcomer and a landlubber among sailors and fishermen, Carlsson is implicitly distrusted by the locals as they try to discern whether Carlsson is a slippery confidence trickster preying on the lonely widow, or an honest, hard-working man revitalizing the neglected farm.

Description du livre Norvik Press, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book. August Strindberg (1849-1912, Sweden s internationally recognised dramatist, was an astonishingly prolific all-rounder. The new National Edition of his works will run to seventy-two volumes: he was a writer of novels, short stories, essays, journalism and satire, he experimented with early photography, and in recent years his paintings have achieved the recognition they deserve. His novel The People of Hemso (1887) will come as a surprise to most English-language readers, used as they are to seeing the bitter controversialist of plays like The Father and Miss Julie or the seeker for cosmic meaning and reconciliation of those mysterious later dream plays To Damascus and A Dream Play . This novel, a tragicomic story of lust, love and death among the fishermen and farmers of the islands of the Stockholm Archipelago, reveals a very different Strindberg. The vigour and humour of the narration, as well as its cinematic qualities, are such that we witness a great series of peopled panoramas in which place and time and character are somehow simultaneously specific and archetypical, and we leave the novel with memories of grand landscapes and spirited scenes. In a recent essay Ludvig Rasmusson wrote: For me, The People of Hemso is the Great Swedish Novel, just as .The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn [is] the Great American Novel . His comparison is an apt one: if the Mississippi becomes the quintessence of America, the island of Hemso and the archipelago become the quintessence of Sweden.
