Abstract [en]

The article discusses how the theories of the French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan might influence the interpretation of August Strindberg's characters on stage. The point of departure for illuminating and locating the reflexive potential between the psychoanalytic thesis and the plays is the function of anamorphosis, understood as a drawing presenting a distorted image that appears in natural form under certain conditions.
