About Henrik Ibsen

Henrik Ibsen is one of the most acclaimed playwrights in history. Born in Norway in 1828, he was a revolutionary figure who explored themes such as the role of women and society in his works. His plays are renowned for their ability to convey powerful messages through a unique blend of realism and symbolism.

Ibsen's early works focused on traditional Norwegian culture, but he soon moved away from this style and began experimenting with modernist ideas. He wrote plays that were highly critical of middle-class values, which gained him both fans and detractors across Europe. His most famous works include 'A Doll’s House', 'Hedda Gabler' and 'The Wild Duck'. Written during the last two decades of the 19th century, these plays set new standards for drama by introducing complex characters and challenging social conventions.
