5.0 out of 5 stars A transcendental gem..., 6 Oct 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: The Wild Duck (Dover Thrift Editions) (Paperback)
Ibsen invites us to take a good look at the foundations of our lives through the themes expressed by him in the text of The Wild Duck. The themes expressed through the play are still as relevant today as they were during Isben's era, which is why this play continues to be read today, as it rightly should. Can we all lead idealistic lives or do most of us require the absence of truth from our lives to be able to enjoy life? The playwright brings out all this and numerous other questions pertaining to the issue of truth and deception to the audience. The thematic techniques employed by the playwright are those which all of us can appreciate. The Wild Duck is a wonderfully entertaining play and a pleasure to read to which we can all relate and I would say that it indeed confirms Ibsen as the father of modern theatre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational and thought-provoking, 8 Nov 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: The Wild Duck (Dover Thrift Editions) (Paperback)
I don't usually like to read plays but this one by Henrik Ibsen is brilliant. Once started, I had to finish, which is easy because it is quite short.
A thought-provoking play with believable characters.
