The three plays in this volume provide intriguing insights into the personalities and often contrasting views of two of the most formidable and influential playwrights in theatre history. Lunatic and Lover explores the roots of Strindberg's creativity from childhood to maturity, in his obsessive personality and relationships with women. A Meeting in Rome records a meeting between Ibsen and Strindberg that did not take place, and demonstrates how much the two artists had in common as well as their differences. The Summer in Gossensass tells of Ibsen's reciprocated infatuation at the age of 61 with an 18 year old girl, and of its effect on his most famous plays.
