Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906) a Norwegian playwright, is considered to be the parent of the modern drama. He inaugurated in the world literature the theatre of ideas.

Born and raised in Norway, Ibsen chose to live abroad for long periods of time. He spent more than 27 years in Germany and Italy. However, he never forgot his origins, choosing Norway as a setting for his plays. Ibsen dramas analyze and criticize the society, and the author masterly describes the existential and psychological conflicts.
