  Abstract:  The End of a Friendship. Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson, August Strindberg, The Emancipation of Women and The Union Between Norway and Sweden. The Swedish writer August Strindberg was by far the most important of my youth years. This article is an attempt to look back and find the reason for this, in light of my later work about the Norwegian writer Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson. There was something different about Strindberg. Where Bjørnson wrote to strengthen the Norwegian fight for democracy, and the famous Henrik Ibsen wrote about the universal riddles of the human being, Strindberg had a much stronger sense of the contemporary, a spirit of revolt towards all sorts of conventions. Even though his opinions in many cases are different from his contemporaries, it does not mean that he did not raise very important questions. In my opinion, he is still the most evident representative for the modern breakthrough.

Keywords: August Strindberg, Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson, breakthrough, emancipation of women.
