About Henrik Ibsen

Henrik Ibsen is considered one of the most influential playwrights in history. He was a Norwegian author and poet who wrote plays that are still performed today. His work helped pioneer the modern theater movement and changed how audiences viewed social issues.

Ibsen was born in 1828 in Skien, Norway. He spent much of his life living abroad, but his works often explored the changing Norwegian society from which he came. His first major success as a playwright came with his 1877 play A Doll’s House, which examines gender roles through the story of Nora Helmer and her struggle for independence from her husband Torvald. This groundbreaking work earned him international acclaim, and it continues to be performed around the world today. Find out more about Henrik Ibsen at
