About Henrik Ibsen

Henrik Ibsen is heralded as one of the most influential and important playwrights in history. His plays are renowned for their realism, unapologetic look at societal roles, and complex characters. He was born in Skien, Norway in 1828 and worked as a pharmacist before deciding to pursue his passion for writing.

Ibsen's works were groundbreaking for the time period; he explored controversial topics such as adultery, women’s subjugation, and mental illness that hadn't been openly discussed prior to his writing. Perhaps his most famous work is A Doll's House which explores a woman's struggle between her traditional role in society and her own desires. This groundbreaking piece inspired many feminist movements throughout the world by showing readers that they don't have to conform to predetermined gender roles or expectations.
