August Strindberg (1849–1912) is one of Sweden's most famous classic authors. He had a pretty flamboyant personality.

"Han och hon" (published after the author's death), but I think it's originally from a letter to his first wife Siri von Essen.

How do you say bonfire? It got marked wrong here, though the sentence does refer to a bonfire I think.
