In Miss Julie, a willful young aristocrat, whose perverse nature has already driven her fianc&eacute; to break off their engagement, pursues and effectively seduces her father's valet during the course of a Midsummer's Eve celebration. The progress of that seduction and the play's stunning denouement shocked Swedish audiences who first attended the play in 1889. <br />Despite its controversial debut, this now-classic drama, inspired by the new ideas of naturalism and psychology that swept Europe in the late 19th century, helped to shape modern theater, and remains one of the most potent-and most frequently performed-of modern plays. The full text of Miss Julie is reprinted here as translated by Edwin Bj&ouml;rkman, complete with Strindberg's critical preface to the play, considered by many to be one of the most important manifestos in theater history.

I wouldve rated this ...

I would've rated this 1.5 stars last night as I finished and turned off the light. I didn't feel great, was disappointed with a classical program on NPR and found this play a touch hysterical. During the cold darkness of early morning I reflected on some of the subtle touches, the yellow label and the ill fated bird. The condensed nature of the action was difficult to believe. The pastoral passages by comparison were beautiful.That said I would afford the Author's Preface five stars as a validation of Naturalism. Strindberg is wonderful in his exposition. I am still not a fan of the play but would read it again.
