Product Description

About the Author

Henrik Ibsen was born at Skien in Norway in 1828. He was one of the earliest writers to dramatise the individual's alienation from society. Although never fully appreciated during his lifetime, he has since come to be recognised as one of the greatest dramatists and the 'Father of Modern Drama'.

Format: Paperback
Peer Gynt is a quite wonderful play which deserves wider recognition than it currently has in the English-speaking world. Before coming to this, I had read Ibsen's Doll's House and expected something similar. However, Peer Gynt and A Doll's House are so different they could have been written by different authors. In contrast to A Doll's House's suburban realism, Peer Gynt is pure fantasy, steeped in Scandinavian folklore with a satirical touch as we follow the eponymous hero through his adventures with trolls, witches, ghosts, asylums and the Sphinx. Quite marvellous.

Format: Paperback
Ibsen unleashes his witty imagination in his book, marking his great transition from poetry to prose. Not unlike Dante's Divine Comedy the political satire underlines the author's discontent with the social environment of his time. The style and plot line may seem a little uneven at times (to me anyway).It uses images and references to mythological tales to express its deeper purpose very cleverly. it reads like a charm, you can't put it down and it is perhaps the most enjoyable of Ibsen's writings. (the ending is exceptional).-Reg Dury.
