About Henrik Ibsen

Henrik Ibsen is a renowned Norwegian playwright whose works have had a tremendous influence on the development of modern theater. Born in 1828, Ibsen was raised in small-town Skien, Norway. His father's business failures meant that money was tight for the family during his childhood and early adulthood. Despite these struggles, he managed to pursue a career as a playwright and poet through sheer hard work and determination.

Ibsen is best known for plays such as "A Doll's House," "Hedda Gabler," and "The Wild Duck." Through his characters' inner conflicts and challenging societal conventions, he created stories that explored deeper themes of alienation, gender roles, class structure and morality. His works were often controversial at the time they were written but are still widely read today due to their enduring relevance. Find out more about Henrik Ibsen at
