Strindberg and Ibsen conflict

Despite the many similarities in their plays, Strindberg and Ibsen remained in a long, one of the most famous conflicts of the art world in the second half of the 19th century. With Zola, as with Nietzsche, Strindberg was linked mainly by correspondence. Swedenborg, on the other hand, died almost 70 years before Strindberg was born. 4)


Naumachias depicted victorious battles of ancient fleets. Usually, almost all the participants of such a “battle” were killed, and any possible escapees were killed by praetorian cohorts guarding the course of the battle. The most famous naumachia described in detail by Tacitus, Suetonius, and Dion took place on the waters of the Fucinian Lake in 52 AD at the order of Emperor Claudius. 5)
