Phoenix, by August Strindberg

August Strindberg was married three times, and these experiences – combined with his various other encounters with women, married or otherwise, over the decades – provided him with enough material for an entire literary career. The book he devoted entirely to the topic of matrimony – Giftas (Married), published in two volumes between 1884 and 1886 – contains this shiny jewel about a selfish man’s geriatric epiphany. Say what you like about Strindberg as a person, but he certainly knew his way around men, women – and marriage.
