About the Book: Dolls House and Other Plays
"The League of Youth" (1869) was Ibsens first venture into realistic social drama and marks a turning-point in his style. By 1879, Ibsen was convinced that women suffer an inevitable violation of their personalities within the context of marriage. In "A Dolls House", he portrayed the wife struggling to break free: this was unheard of at the time and Ibsens play caused a sensation. Continuing the theme of tensions within the family in "The Lady from the Sea", Ibsen put forward the view that freedom with responsibility might at least be a step in the right direction.
About the Author: Henrik Ibsen
Henrik Ibsen was born at Skien in Norway in 1828. He turned to journalism and playwriting instead of pursuing a university career. Ibsen was one of the earliest writers to dramatise the individuals alienation from society. Although Ibsen was never fully appreciated during his lifetime, he has since come to be recognised as one of the great dramatists of all time and the "Father of Modern Drama." Peter Watts trained as a doctor at Cambridge but then turned to journalism and the theatre.
