I am always a little reluctant talking about Ibsen.
I never learned the language.
Over the last decade, I read, I think, almost every play of his that got translated. Some I read so long ago that I no longer remember. There is also a sameness to many of the plays, even if they are masterpieces (like Woody Allen movies that are all different, but the same.)
But everytime I think of narratives, dialogue, and character, I think back to Ibsen. And, he also gave me the norm for tragedies.
