    This short novel is a melancholic guide of Stockholm It is a compendium of thoughts and reflections upon life from a peculiar character It is a story of alienation and unrequited love And it is also the story of a planned murder Although than a hundred years old, this novel feels as fresh as if written yesterday The only hint of its age are depictions of places in Stockholm that no longer exist and some obsolete debates on abortion, for example , but otherwise the language doesn t fell dated and the ideas are as universal as ever.Tyko Gabriel Glas is a young doctor in Stockholm He is intelligent and well off, but his cynical view of life has made him a solitary man He has a habit of falling for women that are already in love with other men, as only they seem to spark his interest But he is painfully aware that no woman can truly get to know and accept him.He spends his evenings alone, strolling through the city streets and writing in his diary His nature is that of a spectator, he prefers to observe people from afar, rather than spend time in their company On the other hand, he doesn t have a high opinion of himself, either I m going through grey days and dark moments I m not happy But I wouldn t take the place of anybody else my heart cringes at the thought that I could be one of my acquaintances I don t particularly like myself, neither the shell, nor the core But I wouldn t want to be anybody else.Pastor Gregorius is the man he despises and dreads the most and, after the preacher s beautiful wife asks for his help in a delicate matter, Doctor Glas abandons his reserved position and decides to interfere But how far is he willing to go for the woman who gradually becomes the object of his affection, he who used to hide behind the screen of duty when it came to breaking the law I can see why this novel was considered controversial in 1905 Hjalmar S derberg touches some sensitive topics abortion, assisted suicide which he envisions as a human right in the future , sexuality, morality and religion In my opinion, the novel hasn t lost its flavor, so it s totally worth reading it.

    This book has become quite well known recently due to the theatre production starring Krister Henriksson We saw it in London a few months ago, and it is indeed very good but I was surprised to discover that the book is substantially different The eponymous Glas, as most people now know, is a doctor in late 19th century Stockholm who kills the husband of one of his patients Fru Gregorius is young and beautiful her husband is a hypocritical old priest whose very presence makes Glas feel physically sick Gregorius s wife is secretly unfaithful to him, and Glas is the only person she has told She cannot stand the fact that her husband still insists on having sex with her, and asks Glas if he can do anything In the play, Glas s motivation seems clear A lonely person with no one to love, he falls for the beautiful wife s charm and agrees to everything she asks for he came across as rather like M Hire in Patrice Leconte s film, though things work out better for him.But I experienced the book in another way The central puzzle is why Glas murders the priest The clear lines of the play are blurred he is indeed very taken with the wife, but he could equally well have responded to Fr ken Mertens, who is also young and beautiful, and clearly loves him He chooses to ignore her, and there are factors in play Glas has always found sex disgusting The girl he loved as a young man died in a tragic accident shortly after he kissed her for the first time And so many of his female patients have begged him for abortions He has consistently turned them down, but he s wondered and often if he s been right to do that Somehow, sex and death have got mixed up in Glas s cold, analytical mind The book is the diary he starts keeping as he tries to disentangle things He scrupulously weighs up the pros and cons of his various choices, discusses the morality of the situation, plans carefully to minimize the chance of being discovered, considers whether he s likely to suffer pangs of remorse But after he s killed Gregorius, he still doesn t really know why he s done it He rereads his notes, and decides he probably did the right thing, but he s not sure All he can see is an infinite web of cause and effect stretching out into the past He wishes he hadn t investigated it so carefully The book, too, has its own web of causes and effects Several of the characters come from earlier S derberg novels The hunchbacked watch maker who sells Glas the case in which he keeps the cyanide pills also appears in F rvillelser, S derberg s first book there, he marries the shop girl that Thomas Weber gets pregnant Martin Birck, a character that Glas often meets, is the hero of Martin Bircks Ungdom, written four years earlier, where he is pretty clearly S derberg himself And although people at the time hated Doktor Glas and called it implausible and immoral, it has aged well The edition I read has a postscript briefly explaining how it was chosen in 2002 to be the first book in the series Stockholm l ser Stockholm reads I think S derberg would have been touched by this gesture of appreciation from the city he loved so much, and I am sure Swedes, and in particular people from Stockholm, will carry on reading it for a long time to come.

    When I finished this book I didn t feel much impressed however it grew on me in time There are some passages that I came back to read again and again Its a strange, insightful and interesting book written at the beginning of 20th century The story is about a young doctor who either pities or despises his patients and plays the judge and the jury and the executioner sometimes.The book makes you question fundamental issues such as morals, ethics and faith.

    Vita, proprio non ti capiscoQualche giorno fa, causa un malanno che non vuole passare, sono andato da un medico che mi hanno consigliato la mia dottoressa della ASL la equiparo per competenza a un pasticcere di scarsa qualit.Mi siedo e inizia l anamnesi, il solito fuoco di domande e risposte.A un certo punto squilla il telefono e il medico, scusandosi, risponde Dall altro capo del filo capisco esserci la segretaria Oggetto della conversazione una signora ha chiamato e insiste con foga per avere supporto del medico per problemi del marito Il dottore prima risponde con calma, poi, ridendo, dice il punto che lei non sopporta pi lui Inutile girarci intorno Dobbiamo solo decidere se sopprimere lui o lei Mi guarda, lo guardo Sorride, sorrido Quando mette gi il telefono dice a volte purtroppo questo il problema Non ci si sopporta pi. Quale sorpresa ho provato quando, leggendo il libro Il dottor Glas, mi sono ritrovato esattamente la stessa situazione solo che nel libro il medico non scherza e decide che per curare una signora, sia necessario eliminare il suo problema, ossia il marito.Un libro di rara profondit , questo.Veloce, breve, coinvolgente, inquietante, efficace, affilato come una lama, chirurgico.Un libro che si basa sul concetto di morale.Cos Esiste Ha senso parlare di morale comune Esistono dei diritti e dei doveri nel matrimonio E moralmente corretto l aborto E l eutanasia Ha senso parlare di rispetto per la vita umana Il rispetto per la vita umana cos altro sulla mia bocca se non una squallida ipocrisia, e cos altro pu essere per chi di tanto in tanto abbia trascorso un momento libero a pensare Il mondo brulica di vite umane E nessuno, forse con l eccezione di qualche filantropo davvero ridicolo, ha mai dato seriamente il minimo peso a vite umane estranee, sconosciute, ignorate Lo dimostrano i fatti Tutti i governi e i parlamentari del mondo lo dimostrano. Soffermandosi poi nel dettaglio se il matrimonio indissolubile finch morte non ci separi e non si sopporta pi il coniuge e se questi avanza in continuazione diritti in merito a richieste cui non vogliamo o possiamo pi sottostare quale pu essere l unica via di uscita Ognuno ha la sua visione personale su queste cose Visione che dipende dalla sua cultura, dal contesto in cui vive, dalle sue convinzioni politiche e religiose, dalla sua et e consapevolezza E soggetta a convenzioni e cambia in continuazione La morale uno degli utensili domestici, non una divinit Deve essere adoperata, non deve dominare E deve essere adoperata con buon senso, con un granellino di sale saggio far proprie le usanze di dove ci si reca sciocco farlo con convinzione Io sono un viandante nel mondo, guardo le usanze degli uomini e scelgo ci che mi serve E morale viene da s, costumi si basa interamente sul costume, sull usanza non ha nessun altro fondamento. Incredibilmente avanti Soderberg Pensare e scrivere queste cose nel 1905 non era affatto facile Mi domando come mai questi temi scomodi vengano affrontati e discussi in modo cos diretto e senza giri di parole Mentalit o assenza di condizionamenti religiosi

    O Doutor Glas foi publicado, pela primeira vez, na Su cia em 1905, altura em que gerou pol mica pela ousadia com que Hjalmar S derberg fala de sexo e morte, tendo sido entendido como a apologia do aborto, eutan sia e assass nio.Glas um homem melanc lico e solit rio, que vive em conflito entre o dever como m dico e o que ele pensa como pessoa um homem culto e uma alma sens vel, que ama a Beleza, potenciada pelo seu amor m sica e literatura, e que abomina tudo o que carnal, sujo, doente tudo aquilo que torna o mundo Feio e que deveria ser eliminado um romance inc modo que nos obriga a despojar da capa de hipocrisia e, libertos de ideias preconcebidas e politicamente correctas, ir ao fundo de n s mesmos procurar o que verdadeiramente pensamos sobre assuntos que apenas ligeiramente afloramos Queremos ser amados falta de amor, queremos ser admirados falta de admira o, ser temidos falta de sermos temidos, odiados e desprezados Queremos suscitar nos outros esta ou aquela esp cie de sentimento A alma tem horror ao vazio, e quer a todo o custo manter os seus contactos Ter de chegar, e chegar , o dia em que o direito a morrer seja considerado muito mais importante e inalien vel do que o direito a introduzir um boletim numa urna eleitoral E quando os tempos estiverem maduros para esse dia, todo o doente incur vel ter direito assist ncia do m dico, caso deseje a liberta o
