Overview

A man very much of his time, a persistently 'social' playwright, Ibsen always tried to expose the dilemmas of action and conscience that have found their deepest expression on the stage. Though Ibsen has frequently been seen as the most dogmatic of dramatists, he was also stricken with fears, religious doubts, and unending questions that he never resolved to his own satisfaction. This complex figure, one of the giants of the modern theatre, is revealed through the eyes of another larger-than-life dramatic force, Harold Clurman. The contradictions in Ibsen's nature--rebel and traditionalist, realist and epic poet, outcast and folklorist of Norway--are brilliantly examined in this guide to the theatre's most complex revolutionary.
