Preface to the electronic edition

August Strindberg wrote Inferno after a personal crisis in the years 1894-1896. It was written in French; a translation into Swedish by Eugène Fahlstedt was published in 1897; in 1898 the French original was published. That Swedish translation with minor edits also appears in Strindberg's collected works (volume 28 of Samlade skrifter, 1914), which we digitized in April 2004.

A Danish translation by Viggo Adler, Helvede was published in 1897, a German in 1898, a Polish by Karol Bicz in 1899, a German by Emil Schering in 1910, a German by Christian Morgenstern in 1919, a Croatian by Ratko Parezanin in 1920, a Hungarian by Lajos Mikes in 1921, a Danish by Sven Lange in 1924, an Italian by Giulio Ricci in 1925, an Italian by Carlo Picchio in 1950, a German by Tabitha von Bonin in 1959.

This English translation by Claud Field was first published in 1912. A copy printed in 1913 in the University of California Libraries has been digitized in April 2008 for the Internet Archive, from where the scanned images and OCR text in March 2020 were copied to Project Runeberg.

This volume was scanned elsewhere and made available by the Internet Archive, from where the scanned images were copied to Project Runeberg. We very much appreciate that they have made this possible and want to encourage other digital library projects to follow their example. Read more about Project Runeberg's image sources.
