AUTHOR

SUMMARY

The father of modern drama,Henrik Ibsenshook off the stale conventions of nineteenth-century theater and made the stage play an instrument for brilliantly illuminating the dark recesses of human nature. After writing historical plays and imaginative epic dramas in verse, such asPeer Gynt, Ibsen turned away from history and romanticism to focus instead on the problems of the individual and modern society. The plays of his middle period--A Doll's House, Ghosts, The Wild Duck,and his most popular play,Hedda Gabler--are masterpieces of stark psychological realism. In his final plays, includingThe Master Builder, Ibsen mixed realism and symbolism to enrich his examination of our subconscious drives and urges. Ibsen was criticized and denounced during his lifetime for expanding the boundaries of what is acceptable fare for the stage. Audiences were shocked when he wrote of feminist yearnings, venereal disease, and the deep emotions that underlie the sadness involved in being human. James Joyce put the criticism in perspective: "Henrik Ibsen is one of the world's great men before whom criticism can make but feeble show. . . . When the art of a dramatist is perfect the critic is superfluous." Ibsen has since come to be considered one of our greatest playwrights.Puchner, Martin is the author of 'Six Plays By Henrik Ibsen', published 0000 under ISBN 9781593080617 and ISBN 1593080611.
