First published in the late 1940s, this searing tale of bereavement and loathing feels all too relevant today. A Moth to a Flame, Swedish author Stig Dagerman’s most popular novel, was published in 1948 as A Burnt Child. That seems more on-the-nose than the current title for a book about the destructive effects of grief, abandonment and self-absorption on a tortured young man following the death of his mother. The narrative viewpoint at first shifts between characters, but soon settles on 20-year-old Bengt. From the outset the tone is cool and dispassionate: Bengt is “the son”, widowed Knut is “the father”. Scenes of awkward family gatherings and the clearout of belongings make it look like a traditional story of bereavement and its aftermath, but the sky quickly blackens. Bengt’s late mother once told him when he was sad to write a letter to himself. “When the letter is finished, you won’t be sad any more.” But the letters he writes to address his grief, which appear between chapters, allow his thoughts to feed on themselves – resentment at the world that let his mother die, hatred of his father’s drunkenness – and we slowly see a self-driven radicalisation taking place. Bengt’s reliance on the echo chamber of his own unchallenged thoughts feels relevant to today’s concerns about the roots of extremism. When Bengt discovers that his father had – still has – a lover, his loathing escalates, and it becomes clear a terrible reckoning is ahead; the only question is which particular mess it will make. Dagerman is excellent on how our motives can be a mystery even to ourselves, as Bengt finds his malice toward his father’s lover, Gun, developing in unexpected ways. The novel, in a new translation by Benjamin Miers-Cruz, is a timely warning on the dangers of absolutism. “What can arouse more pleasure,” wonders Bengt, “than taking revenge for the sake of purity?” Bengt’s view of human nature is bleak. “If you want someone to love you, you don’t ask her to see if she ‘really’ does. Because, when all is said and done, there isn’t much we ‘really’ do. If you search deep down, you will find that the weight never reaches the bottom.” A Moth to a Flame is a book by a young writer, but the flaws that go along with that – a chaos of feelings, excessive detail, cynicism verging on nihilism – work in its favour and fit the fabric of Bengt’s churning emotions. Regrettably, we will never know how Dagerman’s writing would have developed in later life; he abandoned fiction in 1949, at the age of 26, and killed himself five years later. .

Royal Opera House, LondonLauren Cuthbertson and Reece Clarke’s masterclass in clarity is the highlight in a night of Macmillan, Ashton and Petipa. It’s a seemingly random selection that makes up this Royal Ballet triple bill: a piece of stark abstraction, a nostalgic character study and some 19th-century Russian classicism. However, each work reveals a facet of British ballet in the 1960s. Kenneth MacMillan’s 1966 Concerto, created for the Berlin Opera ballet, screams modernity, with its precision pointe work and fast, unfussy dancing. This is choreography that needs to be ultra-tight to sing, but there is some first-night untidiness. The undoubted highlight of the evening is the slow pas de deux at the centre of Concerto. Lauren Cuthbertson and Reece Clarke give a masterclass in elegant clarity, in circling port de bras and long, tilting extensions, entirely unsentimental and all the better for it. Made two years after Concerto but harking back decades earlier, Frederick Ashton’s Enigma Variations gives life to composer Edward Elgar’s friends who inspired the eponymous score. It is a genteel picture of pipes and tweeds in shades of sepia. Ashton’s quick studies of Elgar’s social circle display his talent for imaginative ways of putting personality into steps: Matthew Ball a starched whirlwind; Francesca Hayward giddily girlish, all bouncing hair and effortless allegro (and there is something a bit icky in the way Elgar looks at her). Beyond the comical quirks, the familiar swell of Nimrod reveals an honest emotional core in this ballet about the warm ties of friendship. Marius Petipa’s Raymonda, from 1898, was introduced to the Royal Ballet by Rudolf Nureyev in the mid-60s. The third act is presented as a standalone (the rest of the ballet’s plot immaterial, it seems), and is a Hungarian-flavoured grand vision in ivory and gold, built on stateliness rather than fireworks. Its succession of solo variations mostly fail to light up (Mayara Magri is a notable exception) until Glazunov’s music turns to seductive restraint and Sarah Lamb arrives with a clap of her hands and a stare that would turn you to stone, or jelly, and we’re in a different ballet altogether. It is a curious end to a mixed evening, that shows the Royal Ballet is, rightly, not the same company it was in the 1960s. But this programme doesn’t present them at their best. . At the Royal Opera House, London, until 20 December.
