About the Author

Henrik Ibsen, born on March 20, 1828, in Skien, Norway, and deceased on May 23, 1906, stands among the foremost playwrights in the annals of European theatre. Ibsen was a pioneer of modernist drama, his works challenging the Victorian-era norms and delving into issues of morality, individualism, and societal expectations. His plays are characterized by their realistic dialogue, psychological depth, and piercing examination of contemporary social issues, particularly those concerning the rights and roles of women in society. 'The Greatest Feminist Classics in One Volume' underscores Ibsen's influence on feminism, particularly through characters that challenged gender roles and questioned the subordinate position of women, such as Nora in 'A Doll's House' (1879). This play, among others, cemented his reputation as a provocateur of societal change and an advocate of female empowerment, although Ibsen himself claimed not to be a feminist but rather a humanist. His literary contributions extend to a canon of works that includes 'Ghosts' (1881), 'An Enemy of the People' (1882), and 'Hedda Gabler' (1890), all of which embrace his distinctive style of realism infused with symbolism and an exploration of existential themes. Ibsen's impact on both European theatre and global literature endures, with his plays continuing to be widely read and performed, affirming his legacy as a foundational figure in modern drama.
