Certainly neither Augustine, Rousseau, nor Tolstoy have laid bare their souls to the finest fibre with more ruthless sincerity than the great Swedish realist. He fulfilled to the letter the saying of Robertson of Brighton, Woman and God are two rocks on which a man must either anchor or be wrecked. His four autobiographical works, The Son of a Servant, The Confessions of a Fool, Inferno, and Legends, are four segments of an immense curve tracing his progress from the childish pietism of his early years, through a period of atheism and rebellion, to the sombre faith in a God that punishes of the sexagenarian.

In his spiritual wanderings he grazed the edge of madness, and madmen often see deeper into things than ordinary folk. At the close of the Inferno he thus sums up the lesson of his lifes pilgrimage: Such then is my life: a sign, an example to serve for the improvement of others- a proverb, to show the nothingness of fame and popularity- a proverb, to show young men how they ought not to live- a proverb—because I who thought myself a prophet am now revealed as a braggart.
