She is devoutly religious and apparently betrothed to Jean, although they refer to this marriage almost jokingly. The Count: Miss Julie's father. He is never seen, but his gloves and his boots are on stage, serving as a reminder of his power. When the bell sounds, his presence is also noted more strongly.
The play opens with Jean walking onto the stage, the set being the kitchen of the manor.

He drops the Count's boots off to the side but still within view of the audience; his clothing shows that he is a valet. The playwright describes the set in detailed, naturalistic style. Jean talks to Christine about Miss Julie's peculiar behavior. He considers her mad since she went to the barn dance, danced with the gamekeeper, and tried to waltz with Jean, a mere servant of the Count.
Christine delves into the background of Miss Julie, stating how, unable to face her family after the humiliation of breaking her engagement, she stayed behind to mingle with the servants at the dance instead of going with her father to the Midsummer's Eve celebrations. The incident, apparently witnessed by Jean, was similar to training a dog to jump through a hoop. Jean takes out a bottle of fine wine, a wine with a "yellow seal", and reveals, by the way he flirts with her, that he and Christine are engaged.

Noticing a stench, Jean asks what Christine is cooking so late on Midsummer's Eve. The pungent mixture turns out to be an abortifacient for Miss Julie's dog, which was impregnated by the gatekeeper's mongrel. Jean calls Miss Julie "too stuck-up in some ways and not proud enough in others", traits apparently inherited from her mother. Despite her character flaws, Jean finds Miss Julie beautiful or perhaps simply a stepping stone to achieve his lifelong goal of owning an inn.
When Miss Julie enters and asks Christine if the "meal" has finished cooking, Jean instantly shapes up, becoming charming and polite. Jokingly, he asks if the women are gossiping about secrets or making a witch's broth for seeing Miss Julie's future suitor. After more niceties, Miss Julie invites Jean once more to dance the waltz, at which point he hesitates, pointing out that he already promised Christine a dance and that the gossip generated by such an act would be savage.
Almost offended by this response, she justifies her request by pulling rank: she is the lady of the house and must have the best dancer as her partner.
Then, insisting that rank does not matter, she convinces Jean to waltz with her. When they return, Miss Julie recounts a dream of climbing up a pillar and being unable to get down. Jean responds with a story of creeping into her walled garden as a child — he sees it as "the Garden of Eden, guarded by angry angels with flaming swords" — and gazing at her longingly from under a pile of stinking weeds. He says he was so distraught with this unrequitable love, after seeing her at Sunday church service, that he tried to die beautifully and pleasantly by sleeping in a bin of oats strewn with elder flowers, since sleeping under an elder tree was thought to be dangerous.
At this point Jean and Miss Julie notice some servants heading up to the house, singing a song that mocks the pair of them. They hide in Jean's room.
Although Jean swears he won't take advantage of her there, when they emerge later it becomes apparent that the two have had sex. Now they are forced to figure out how to deal with it, as Jean theorizes that they can no longer live together anymore — he feels they will be tempted to continue their relationship until they are caught. Now he confesses that he was only pretending when he said he had tried to commit suicide for love of her.
Furiously, Miss Julie tells him of how her mother raised her to be submissive to no man. They then decide to run away together to start a hotel, with Jean running it and Miss Julie providing the capital. Miss Julie agrees and steals some of her father's money, but angers Jean when she insists on bringing her little bird along — she insists that it is the only creature that loves her, after her dog Diana was "unfaithful" to her.
When Miss Julie insists that she would rather kill the bird than see it in the hands of strangers, Jean cuts off its head. In the midst of this confusion, Christine comes downstairs, prepared to go to church. She is shocked by Jean and Miss Julie's planning and unmoved when Miss Julie asks her to come along with them as head of the kitchen of the hotel.
Christine explains to Miss Julie about God and forgiveness and heads off for church, telling them as she leaves that she will tell the stablemasters not to let them take out any horses so that they cannot run off. Shortly after, they receive word that Miss Julie's father, the Count, has returned.
At this, both lose courage and find themselves unable to go through with their plans. For me, the Jewish angle was always more vital, more crucial. He went to secular schools but developed a self-motivated interest in Jewish culture and texts.
He studied on his own, and in the pluralistic beit midrash study halls that sprouted in Israel in the last generation. He knew he wanted to be a writer since elementary school. I write slowly and very meticulously. Not long after arriving in America, he published a collection of short stories.
Reincarnation and the Law of Karma
It was well received in Israel; it has not yet been translated. Namdar said. He embraced American Jewish culture. Only Cynthia Ozick of the aforementioned quartet of American novelists would have been quite so mystical, quite so Jewish. And considered, in translation, as a work of American Jewish literature, it is explicitly wrestling more with Jewish tradition than most of its antecedents. It is not only that the heavens open up on the first page; throughout the book there are pages from a book within the book, stories of an ancient Jewish priest surrounded, as on a page of Talmud, by quotations from the Talmud and other mostly but not always real Jewish texts.
I started playing around with the format of telling the subplot using this wonderful layout of the talmudic page. The Problem of Immortality podcast. Art Spotlight: The Wheel of Samsara.
