The Ghost Sonata Overview

In perhaps his most famous play, The Ghost Sonata, Swedish playwright August Strindberg presents a nightmarish view of life, ultimately asserting that humanity's only hope for finding meaning and redemption lies in the afterlife. As Strindberg slowly reveals the depravity that exists within the walls of the seemingly ideal home at the center of the play, he embeds within the text themes such as corruption, deception, and the chasm that exists between appearance and reality.
