Über den Autor

Henrik Ibsen, born on March 20, 1828, in Skien, Norway, was a towering figure in the realm of theatre, known as the 'father of realism'. A trailblazer for modernist drama, Ibsen's works often delved into the complexities of the human psyche and societal norms. Though he began his career influenced by romanticism, his pivotal turn towards realistic and often challenging subject matter paved the way for his enduring legacy. His famously controversial approach can be seen in his critical examination of Victorian morals, which extends to works included in 'The Essential Feminist Collection – 60 Powerful Classics in One Volume'. Ibsen's plays, including 'A Doll's House', 'Ghosts', and 'Hedda Gabler', often presented strong female characters struggling against the constraints of society, making him an inadvertent champion of feminist literature. His meticulous construction of dialogue and in-depth character development have made his literature a cornerstone of theatrical study and performances worldwide. Ibsen's literary style mirrored his belief that drama should challenge the audience, confronting them with harsh realities and moral dilemmas. He passed away on May 23, 1906, in Oslo, but continues to be revered as a pivotal playwright whose works are essential reading for those interested in the evolution of drama and the early feminist movement.
