In Strindbergs world,...

In Strindberg's world, the woman is always wrong. She is a double-dealing schemer whose only desire is the emasculation and humiliation of any man foolish enough to waste a second thought on her. Comrades is set in the art world of Paris (although the characters are a bunch of Swedes) and shows the marriage of Axel and Bertha, who have tried to develop a partnershp on an equal basis, though Axel is depicted as the superior artist. There is a double-dealing friend, who encourages both parties to think ill of each other. Even poor Bertha's attempts at compassion are flawed. She gives a large sum of money to a woman who tells her a story about marital betrayal and begs money to support her children. As it turns out, the children in question are a gaggle of prostitues and she has been blood-sucking her former husband for years. By the time Axel walks out on the marriage (and hooks up with a new woman who will be a wife not a comrade) Bertha's life in shreds. Interesting in a repulsive way.
