A Madmans Defence: August Strindberg 

A Madmans Defence: August Strindberg -  An autobiographical novel by the Swedish writer August Strindberg. The narrative is based on Strindberg's marriage to Siri von Essen. The book was written in French and first published in a German translation in 1893.

As his stormy marriage to Siri von Essen was coming to an end, August Strindberg feared there was a secret conspiracy between the women of Europe, and they were planning to silence him by conducting a campaign to make people believe he was insane. Strindberg therefore decided to hurridly write a book revealing the truths about the marriage.


The book was first published in 1893 through G. Müller Verlag, in a German translation by Emil Schering, with the title Die Beichte eines Toren. The original French version was published by Albert Langen in 1895. The first English translation was called The Confession of a Fool and published in 1912; in his book The Novels of August Strindberg,
