About the Author
Only Shakespeare's plays are performed more frequently than those of Henrik Ibsen (1828 1906). The Norwegian playwright, theater director, and poet scandalized many of his contemporaries as he led the theater into the modern era by exploring the realities behind 19th-century social conventions."
