About the book

Prominent Scandinavian authors from the end of the nineteenth century struggled with the classical themes of myth and religion and the modern concepts of Freud and Darwin. The reconciliation of these counterpoints in the work of Norway's Henrik Ibsen, Sweden's August Strindberg and Denmark's J.P. Jacobsen, forms the core of Erik Østerud's provocative analysis. It is Østerud's view that naturalism with its mimetic representation of reality has been a source of conflict for these three men.
