Stebri družbe (1877) so ostra kritika dvolične meščanske družbe, ki pod uglajeno in moralno zgledno površino skriva izdajstvo, sebičnost, podkupljivost. V majhnem obmorskem mestecu konzul Bernick že desetletja skrbi »za narodov blagor«. Ravno ko načrtuje gradnjo obmorske železnice, se v mestu pojavi mlajši brat Bernickove soproge Johan Tönnesen, ki je pred več kot desetlet...more

I am a fan of Ibsen and I wish I could love this play more but its deus ex machina happy ending is fake and flaccid and had me groaning. How can the author of Ghosts be so sentimental? I enjoyed everything but to it though.
I began this play at the wrong time. For some reason I thought it was a good idea to unwind with an Ibsen play and a cocktail after twelve hours driving, in the middle of a relocation halfway across the country. I couldn’t get into the play at the time. I think I set my expectations too high and would have done my weary mind better by watching some mindless television. After settling in to our new city, I joined a reading group, deciding to revisit Tolstoy’s War & Peace. Having gotten ahead...more

I went on a tear on 2007 and read all of Henrik Ibsen and all of August Strindberg. Before I could get to all of Anton Pavlovich Chekhov, I had to turn back to writing, and I can't read while I write. Ibsen is wonderful. The thing I like most about Ibsen is that he loves and respects women at least in his writing. Not all of his plays are tragedies either. Many are very funny and many have mixed endings, not all are downers.
Though I'm not a big fan of Peer Gynt. Strindberg's parody of Peer Gyn...more
With The Pillars of Society, we enter a new and final phase in Ibsen’s writing, the so-called 12 prose or realist plays. It is arguable whether such an unruly set of disparate plays should be grouped together. How does one classify An Enemy of the People, The Wild Duck, The Lady from the Sea or The Master Builder in one sweeping category?

It also seems doubtful that many of Ibsen’s final plays could be seen as truly realist. The Master Builder, the last act of John Gabriel Borkman and When We De...more
Pillars of Society was a pivotal work for Ibsen, and was written at a transitional point of his distinguished career as a playwright. It is not a masterpiece, but one can find in there the great themes that are being used as leitmotifs in his great plays: the hypocrisy and narrow-mindedness of provincial life, the financial scams that threaten to ruin one's family or reputation, a well-kept secret that will hunt one's mind for the rest of their existence...

The characters are portrayed as complex...more

وهذه الدعايات والمهرجانات اللامعات التي تعلنهاالشعوب الكبيرة.. ماذا تخفي ورائها ، الفراغ و الفساد.. ما من دعامة اخلاقية تعتمد عليها
وباختصار ان الشعوب الكبيرة لا تزيد عن كونها مقابر مزينة
لنأخذ المجتمعات ،الراقيه ماحالهم ، الشك و الضجر في كل مكان ، لا سلام ولا اطمئنان لا في عقول الناس ولا في علاقاتهم ببعض
الحياة العائلية هناك لا تعقل فهم يشكون في أقوى قدسيات الحياة

Adevarul si sinceritatea constituie stalpii societatii, fara-ndoiala, insa intr-o lume ideala... realitatea este seaca insa, chiar fara de speranta (daca nu-i urmata de o explozie de transfigurari, acea excelenta a marilor transfigurari mentionata de Cioran), verdictul ei vine ca o ghilotina: la baza societatii noastre domneste de atata amar de vreme implacabila si nesfarsita Ipocrizie - suntem condamnati la o degradare continua.

شاید بشود گفت گرفتاری های ایبسن از انتشار این نمایش نامه، که بر مبنای اصل "گناه و شرم" نوشته شده، آغاز شد و با نمایش نامه های دیگرش پیوسته مورد تکفیر و انتقاد قرار گرفت.

آثار نمایشی هنریک ایبسن مانند زندگی اش پر از فراز و نشیب اند. برخی
منتقدان او را به راستی ستوده اند و برخی هرگز آثارش را نپسندیدند. ایبسن به معنایی که دکتر امیر حسین آریانپور در کتاب "ایبسن آشوب گرای" نوشته، چه در زندگی و چه در آثارش یک آنارشیست جلوه می کند. با وجودی که گفته اند از شکسپیر به این سو دوران تراژدی بسر آمده، برخی از...more

The final is so poor for the rest of the book!!

ibsen is simply my favourite, always was, always will :)

Ibsen’s melodrama on hypocrisy and respectability is improbable and overwrought, but its heart is in the right place. It lacks subtlety but has conscience. More commendable than worthy, but transpose the story to America and it could be the story of a rich Republican who is forced to find morals. ADAPTATION COMING!
This play is good, but I can't help but feel that the ending felt so.... fake. Like Ibsen had to quickly end this play, so he made an ending that was conventionally satisfying but not memorable. It was a bit disappointing to me.

His plays were considered scandalous to many of his era, when Victorian valu...more
