Ibsen in an hour by Rick Davis( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1850, Henrik Ibsen arrived in Christiania (now Oslo), hoping to begin his university education. Yet something else lay in store for the twenty-two-year-old. Failing his exams in Greek and Arithmetic, he soon moved to Bergen to become "dramatic author" at the new Norwegian theatre there. The rebellious young Ibsen was unsatisfied with the conventional "well-made plays" of his time --- calling them "daily abortions." Instead of conforming to that standard, Ibsen began forging his own plays that launched nineteenth-century drama into the modern world. Setting the playwright in context to his personal life, social, historical and political events, other writers of influence, and more, you will quickly gain a deep understanding of Ibsen and the plays he wrote. Read Ibsen in an Hour and experience his plays like never before. Know the playwright, love the play!
