About this product
- DescriptionExcerpt from Historical Miniatures Maximilian Harden, the well-kwn critic, writes in the Zukunft (7th September 1907) of the Historical Miniatures: A very interesting book, as might be expected, for it is Strindberg's. And I am bold eugh to say a book which should and must be successful with the public. The writer is t here concerned with Sweden, r with Natural History. A philosopher and poet here describes the visions which a study of the history of mankind has called up before his inner eye. Julian the Apostate and Peter the Hermit appear on the stage, together with Attila and Luther, Alcibiades and Eginhard. We see the empires of the Pharaohs and the Czars, the Athens of Socrates and the 'Merry England' of Henry VIII. There are twenty brief episodes, and each of them is alive. So powerful is the writers faculty of vision, that it compels belief in his descriptions of countries and men.
