This dissertation takes a starting point from the reception that Norwegian author and playwright Jon Fosse has received - the label of "the new Ibsen" that has been placed upon him by the press. While this label has been used somewhat superficially in some cases and otherwise used only in terms of the playwrights' international success, this dissertation takes a closer look at what connections there are between the two playwrights in terms of their works. This is an analysis of Fosse's plays in light of Ibsen's plays, the Ibsen-tradition, and Ibsen's aura and shows that there are many more similarities between their works than at first perceived. Rather than calling Fosse "the new Ibsen" this comparison and contrasting of the playwrights' works employs the term "post-Ibsen" for Fosse as it examines the dominant characteristics in their writing styles as they relate to modernism and postmodernism, takes a comparative look at the Aristotelian categories of drama, epic, and lyric, explores the "negative affects" with a detailed discussion of boredom and depression, and finally the possibility of change in the works of both Fosse and Ibsen.

Henrik Ibsen (20th March, 1828 - 23rd May, 1906) is often referred to as the father of realism and ranked just below Shakespeare as Europe's greatest ever playwright especially as his plays are performed most frequently throughout the world after Shakespeare's. He was Norwegian and although set his plays in Norway, he wrote them in Danish and lived most of his professional life in Italy and Germany. His affect on the theatre is still evident today and shapes the distinction of plays being art as opposed to entertainment since he broke down all previous traditions and explored issues, developed characterisation, revealed uncomfortable truths, challenged assumptions and brokedown facades in ourselves as well as society. Ibsen displays all these factors in the amazing collection featuring all his well known classics and forgotten gems.

"Was Ibsen influenced by Greek culture? Were allusions to the Greeks configured in the Norwegian playwright's works? According to author Norman Rhodes, whether consciously or unconsciously, many of Ibsen's plays are encoded with veiled references to ancient Greek culture. Rhodes also postulates that Ibsen's perception of the importance of the Greeks was most likely mediated to him through German Romanticism and Scandinavian culture." "According to Rhodes, numerous echoes of Greek literature resonate in such early Ibsen plays as Catiline, The Warrior's Barrow, Olaf Liljerkrans, and Love's Comedy. Ibsen's Brand and Peer Gynt are a dialectic pair which in key ways are suggestive of Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, A Doll House has important parallels with Sophocles' Antigone, and An Enemy of the People correlates with both Plato's Apology and Sophocles' Oedipus Tyrannos. Moreover, a Euripidean sense of fatal irrationality seems inscribed in Ibsen's final plays: the protagonists John Rosmer, Hedda Gabler, Master Builder Solness, John Gabriel Borkman, and the sculptor Rubek all destroy themselves."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Henrik Ibsen's drama is the most prominent and lasting contribution of the cultural surge seen in Scandinavian literature in the later nineteenth century. When he made his debut in Norway in 1850, the nation's literary presence was negligible, yet by 1890 Ibsen had become one of Europe's most famous authors. Contrary to the standard narrative of his move from restrictive provincial origins to liberating European exile, Narve Fulss and Tore Rem show how Ibsen's trajectory was preconditioned on his continued embeddedness in Scandinavian society and culture, and that he experienced great success in his home markets. This volume traces how Ibsen's works first travelled outside Scandinavia and studies the mechanisms of his appropriation in Germany, Britain and France. Engaging with theories of book dissemination and world literature, and re-assessing the emergence of 'peripheral' literary nations, this book provides new perspectives on the work of this major figure of European literature and theatre.

According to the Markers, a play, especially an Ibsen play, is fundamentally a text for performance. In their study of Henrik Ibsen in the theater, they suggest that a deeper meaning underlies the "reality" Ibsen represents, yet the precise manner of its expression is the lively variable that gives his greatest plays their abiding fascination in performance. This comprehensive survey explores key stage productions of six major Ibsen plays, from Peer Gynt to John Gabriel Borkman. The authors push beyond the more familiar confines of English Ibsen into the less commonly traversed territory of German, Russian, French, and, in particular, Scandinavian theater culture. The result is a study that ranges freely in scope from the earliest productions at the start of the great Norwegian dramatist's career to some of the recent and often radical reinterpretations of our own day.

To the Third Empire was first published in 1980. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. Critical acclaim greeted Brian Johnston's 1975 book on Ibsen's final phase, The Ibsen Cycle. Choice called it "the single most provocative and critically exciting books of Ibsen criticism in decades." Johnston now turns his attention to the early works, using the same thematic premise - that the plays follow a clear progression, influenced by the Hegalian aesthetic that pervaded Europe in the mid-nineteenth century. The result is an explanation of the early career that demonstrates both its unity and its essential relation to the realistic cycle that followed. In advancing his argument Johnston provides close readings of ten plays, ranging from Cataline to Emperor and Galilean and including Brand and Peer Gynt. Scholars and students of drama, comparative literature, and Ibsen studies will find To the Third Empire an essential work.

This close study of selected plays by four of the greatest early modern playwrights, namely Ibsen, Strindberg, Chekhov and O'Neill, examines how these plays challenge long-standing traditions and assumptions of nineteenth-century theatre and reassert serious drama's place in great literature. The book studies the chief characters from some of the best-known plays of each playwright, recognizing that what gives them strength as artistic creations and makes them so memorable is the essential contradiction at the core of each figure. Michael Manheim explores the complexity of such characters as Ibsen's Peer Gynt and Hedda Gabler, Strindberg's Miss Julie, Chekhov's Uncle Vanya and Dr. Chebutykin, and the members of O'Neill's Tyrone family.
