Dickens, melodrama, and the parodic imagination by Tore Rem( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dr. Rem examines the Inimitable's comic method in several of his more popular novels, focusing on Dickens's double generic use of the melodramatist's emotional excesses and the parodist's detached and ironic stance. In the hands of a master like Dickens, the results give us a picture of a writer both rooted in and shaping the popular culture of his time - that, and works of genius seen, as it were, for the first time."--Jacket
A doll's house and other plays : with Pillars of the community, Ghosts and An enemy of the people by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains four of Ibsen's most important plays in superb modern translations. With her assertion that she is "first and foremost a human being," rather than a wife, mother or fragile doll, Nora Helmer sent shockwaves throughout Europe when she appeared in Henrik Ibsen's greatest and most famous play, A Doll's House. Ibsen's follow-up, Ghosts, was no less radical, with its unrelenting investigation into religious hypocrisy, family secrets, and sexual double-dealing. These two masterpieces are accompanied here by The Pillars of Society and An Enemy of the People, both exploring the tensions and dark compromises at the heart of society

Sin egen herre : en biografi om Jens Bjørneboe by Tore Rem( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in Norwegian and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hvem var Jens Bjørneboe? Antroposof, kulturkonservativ, billedkunstner,lærer, dikter, dramatiker, romanforfatter, essayist, riksmålsmann, intellektuell, kritiker, kultur- og venstreradikaler, biseksuell,anarkist, alkoholiker, Israel-venn og pornograf.Og mer til. Knaptnoen norsk forfatter kan ha vært så sterkt tilstede i sin tid. Knapt noenhar vært så myteomspunnet. Endelig er første bind av den store biografien om Jens Bjørneboe her. Gjennom et enormt tilfang av hittil ukjent kildemateriale forteller Tore Rem både om mennesket, forfatteren og den samfunnsengasjerte Bjørneboe. Samtidig gir boken nye innganger til norgeshistorien. Sin egen herre skildrer rikmannssønnens oppvekst i Kristiansand på 1920-tallet, et ungdomsopprør som ender i vanære og krigsår i eksil. Den forteller historien om Bjørneboes første kone, den tysk-jødiske flyktningen Lisel Funck, hans arbeid som kunstmaler, lærergjerningen ved Steinerskolen, hans sensasjonelle diktdebut og hvordan han med romanen Jonas havner i sentrum av samfunnsdebatten. Mot slutten av boken bryter Bjørneboe med sin ektefelle, sine gamle sammenhenger og Norge. Så følger kaotiske vandreår på kontinentet, før han i 1959 vender tilbake for å begynne et nytt liv. Andre bind kommer høsten 2010. (Verlagsinformation)

Født til frihet : en biografi om Jens Bjørneboe by Tore Rem( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in 3 languages and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hvem var Jens Bjørneboe? Hva var det ved denne skikkelsen som gjorde ham så myteomspunnet? Og hvordan endte skipsredersønnen fra Kristiansand til slutt opp som anarkist på øya Veierland - og med å ta sitt eget liv? Med annet bind av Tore Rems store biografi avsluttes fremstillingen av et helt usedvanlig mangfoldig og motsetningsfylt menneskeliv. I Født til frihet kommer fortellingen om den Jens Bjørneboe svært mange vil ha et sterkt forhold til. Det er i disse årene - fra han kaster seg inn i fengselsdebatten romjulen 1959 og til han dør i 1976 - at han blir Jens Bjørneboe, slik han har levd videre. Som fortelling, som myte, som eksempel. Rem skildrer Bjørneboes utallige engasjementer, fra kriminalomsorg til ytringsfrihet, fra teaterarbeid til motstand mot Vietnam-krigen. Her er fortellingen om forfatteren som skrev Bestialitetens historie. Her er mannen som ble venstreradikaler, dømt som pornograf for Uten en tråd og som alltid støttet ungdommen i deres opprørstrang. Her er livsstilsrebellenog han som sist i livet skrev bestselgeren Haiene. Denne biografien rommer også de nære ting, portretter av ektemannen, elskeren, familiefaren og vennen. Av et varmt, nærværende, men ytterst rastløst menneske. Født til frihet er historien om det som etter hvert blir en rystende, personlig tragedie. Biografien baserer seg på et enormt nytt kildemateriale, og er i tillegg utstyrt med nær 200 illustrasjoner, svært mange av dem ukjente. Rem bringer oss tettere på denne fascinerende forfatteren enn vi noen gang tidligere har kommet. Samtidig fremstår Jens Bjørneboe både som et bilde og et motbilde av sitt land og sin tid.

Ibsen, Scandinavia and the making of a world drama by Narve Fulsås( Book )

2 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Henrik Ibsen's drama is the most prominent and lasting contribution of the cultural surge seen in Scandinavian literature in the later nineteenth century. When he made his debut in Norway in 1850, the nation's literary presence was negligible, yet by 1890 Ibsen had become one of Europe's most famous authors. Contrary to the standard narrative of his move from restrictive provincial origins to liberating European exile, Narve Fulsås and Tore Rem show how Ibsen's trajectory was preconditioned on his continued embeddedness in Scandinavian society and culture, and that he experienced great success in his home markets. This volume traces how Ibsen's works first travelled outside Scandinavia and studies the mechanisms of his appropriation in Germany, Britain and France. Engaging with theories of book dissemination and world literature, and re-assessing the emergence of 'peripheral' literary nations, this book provides new perspectives on the work of this major figure of European literature and theatre"
