    " Just read this again with a group of students. Such a sad, twisted story. It vaguely resembles my own in a way. "

    " I read this for a book club and because the Court is performing it. I have mixed feelings about Ibsen, probably because of the performances I've seen (I saw an excellent performance of Ghosts, a play I have issues with, an excellent performance of Peer Gynt, a play I really like, and two dreadful stagings of Doll House, a play I just can't like much). Wild Duck probably edged out Hedda Gabler as my favorite of Ibsen's realistic period (I still like Peer Gynt the best), and I'll try and report how the performance at the Court stacks up (I've not yet seen Hedda performed). "

    " It's definitely a play that will be more beneficial to see than read, as every line in the play seems to be heavy, weighted, and can be slightly interpreted. It's a good one, especially if you've read his other plays first. "

    " If you have to read something by Ibsen I'd recommend Vildanden over Peer Gynt "

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.
