About Henrik Ibsen

Henrik Ibsen is one of the most influential playwrights in history. Born in 1828, he was a major proponent of realism in his plays and is known for his works being ahead of their time. His most well-known pieces include A Doll's House, Hedda Gabler, Peer Gynt and Ghosts.

Ibsen's work transcended boundaries and eras, with many elements still relevant today. His stories were often about the search for self-discovery and identity within a patriarchal society that sought to oppress women. He also tackled social issues such as marriage, religion and classism head-on. Ibsen’s works remain some of the most studied texts in literature courses today due to their lasting impact on modern drama worldwide. Find out more about Henrik Ibsen at
