    " My least favorite Ibsen play but it's still Ibsen. "

    " A little masterpiece! A tight structure with many references to Oedipus... It's about art and incest - two very interesting subjects, I think! "

    " As always, the sins of the father visit the son. "

    " It's hard to imagine the kind of effect a play like this had on its audiences when it was first performed. The subjects dealt with are still the stuff of sidelong glances and judgmental gossip to this day, and Ibsen's sometimes annoying (to this modern reader, anyway) habit of never allowing his characters to come out and say anything clearly seems to me a testimony to the degree to which he was breaking taboos even by writing "Ghosts." But for all its Victorian stuffiness of expression and circumlocution, this is still a powerful and fascinating play to experience. "

About the Author
Author Henrik Ibsen

Henrik Ibsen (1828–1906) was a major nineteenth-century Norwegian playwright, theater director, and poet. He is often referred to as “the father of prose drama” and is one of the founders of modernism in the theater. His major works include Brand, Peer Gynt, An Enemy of the People, Emperor and Galilean, A Doll’s House, Ghosts, The Wild Duck, and The Master Builder. Several of his plays were considered scandalous to many of his era, when European theater was required to model strict mores of family life and propriety. Ibsen’s work examined the realities that lay behind many façades, revealing much that was disquieting to many contemporaries. It utilized a critical eye and free inquiry into the conditions of life and issues of morality.
