About the Author

Henrik Ibsen (1828–1906) is often called “the Father of Modern Drama.” Born in Norway in 1828, he enjoyed successes with the verse dramas Brand and Peer Gynt before embarking on his great twelve-play cycle of society dramas, which included A Doll’s House and Ghosts. After twenty-one years of self-imposed exile in Italy and Germany, Ibsen died in Norway.
