The description of Henrik Ibsen Books
Henrik Johan Ibsen (20 March 1828 – 23 May 1906) was a major 19th-century Norwegian playwright, theatre director, and poet. He is often referred to as "the father of realism" and is one of the founders of Modernism in theatre. His major works include Brand, Peer Gynt, An Enemy of the People, Emperor and Galilean, A Doll's House, Hedda Gabler, Ghosts, The Wild Duck, Rosmersholm, and The Master Builder. He is the most frequently performed dramatist in the world after Shakespeare, and A Doll's House became the world's most performed play by the early 20th century. Several of his later dramas were considered scandalous to many of his era, when European theatre was expected to model strict morals of family life and propriety. Ibsen's later work examined the realities that lay behind many façades, revealing much that was disquieting to many contemporaries. It utilized a critical eye and free inquiry into the conditions of life and issues of morality. The poetic and cinematic early play Peer Gynt, however, has strong surreal elements. This application contains the following works: A Doll's House : a play, A Doll's House, An Enemy of the People, Early Plays — Catiline, the Warrior's Barrow, Olaf Liljekrans, Ghosts: A Domestic Tragedy in Three Acts, Ghosts, Hedda Gabler, John Gabriel Borkman, Lady Inger of Ostrat: Henrik Ibsen's Prose Dramas Vol III, Little Eyolf, Love's Comedy, Pillars of Society, Rosmersholm, The Feast at Solhoug, The Lady from the Sea, The Master Builder, The Vikings of Helgeland: The Prose Dramas Of Henrik Ibsen, Vol. III. and When We Dead Awaken.
