Henrik Ibsen

Book Overview: 

Henrik Ibsen's Ghosts, like his earlier play A Doll's House, profoundly shocked his contemporaries. Dubbed "a dirty deed done in public" by one of its critics, the play focuses on (among other things) venereal disease, euthanasia, and incest. The original title literally means "the ones who return," and the play is about how we can deal with the awful legacy of the past.

Book Excerpt: 
. . .And don't slam the doors. Young Mr. Alving—

ENGSTRAND. He's asleep; I know. You're mightily taken up about young Mr. Alving—[More softly.] Oho! you don't mean to say it's him as—?

REGINA. Be off this minute! You're crazy, I tell you! No, not that way. There comes Pastor Manders. Down the kitchen stairs with you.

ENGSTRAND. [Towards the right.] Yes, yes, I'm going. But just you talk to him as is coming there. He's the man to tell you what a child owes its father. For I am your father all the same, you know. I can prove it from the church register.

[He goes out through the second door to the right, which REGINA has opened, and closes again after him. REGINA glances hastily at herself in the mirror, dusts herself with her pocket handkerchief; and settles her necktie; then she busies herself with the flowers.]

[PASTOR MANDERS, wearing an overcoat, carrying an umbrella, and with a small travelling-bag on. . . Read More

Book Review

3 out of 5 stars to Ghosts, a play written in 1881 by Henrik Ibsen. After I read Henrik Ibsens’s realistic play Ghosts, I immediately formed opinions of the characters. I liked Mrs. Alving and Regina. I thought that Oswald was a brat and a nuisance. I didn’t understand how Mrs

Καταπληκτικός ο Henrik Ibsen, με σαφείς επιρροές από αρχαιοελληνική τραγωδία. Θέτει κοινωνικά ζητήματα, πολύ προχωρημένα για την εποχή του (1881), τα οποία ακόμα και σήμερα δεν έχουν ξεπεραστεί

HA! Not having read the play's synopsis beforehand, did I ever get a ghastly (not ghostly) surprise!

"The sins of the father are visited upon the children."

Throughout IBSEN'S entire play, written in 1881, imagine an atmosphere that is nothing but rain and gloom, and subject matters ominously dark
