Doctor Glas, Paperback / softback Book


WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY MARGARET ATWOOD'[A] searing masterwork of Northern European literature.

The retrieval of Doctor Glas in English is a bracing gift to hungry readers' Susan SontagLonely and introspective, Doctor Glas has long felt an instinctive hostility toward the odious local minister.

So when the minister's beautiful wife complains of her husband's oppressive sexual attentions, Doctor Glas finds himself contemplating murder.

Stark, brooding, and enormously controversial when first published in 1905, this astonishing novel juxtaposes impressions of fin-de-siecle Stockholm against the psychological landscape of a man besieged by obsession.
