This classic of world dramaturgy, defined by Strindberg himself as a “modern naturalistic drama” or a “naturalistic tragedy”, puts on stage the dangerous rapprochement between Julie, a young aristocrat, daughter of a count and with a desire for liberation from the status quo of her family. class, and Jean, an ambitious and lively servant of his father. Christine, cook and Jean’s fiancée, completes this triangle of tragic characters, with a psychological depth marked by class and gender issues. Although, as in many naturalistic texts, the passions and desires of the characters appear to be in the foreground, this is the story of the impossible relationship not between two people, but between two worlds that, even in rapid change, are perhaps destined to never if you can find it.
