Henrik Ibsen is now known as the father of modern drama, the most influential dramatist of the modern age, but he was little appreciated in his native Norway during his own lifetime. Rebellious and confrontational as a young man, Ibsen wrote plays that exposed the injustice of middle-class social conventions and gave us some of the most deeply moving psychological portraits, of women in particular, since Shakespeare. Michael Meyer's in-depth study examines Ibsen's life and his skills as a dramatist, exploring the development of his language, style and themes. Taking his material from newspapers, memoirs, letters and theses, he gives a full and sensitive depiction of the man and his work.
