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

Ibsen doesn't pull any punches! Fabulous drama.
Paul Dinger
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.

"الصدق والحرية هما أعمدة المجتمع"
بهذه العبارة البديعة ينهي هنريك ابسن رائعتة أعمدة المجتمع
عن الطبقة الارستقراطية الطفيلية وعن الزيف والكذب والادعاء الفضيلة
عن المظاهر الخادعة
وعن توحش الرأسمالية
مسرحية جميلة وان كانت نهايتها مثالية أكثر من اللازم
لا اقتنع بالنهايات التي يخرج الكل فيها رابحون

"يجب على الناس أن يتعلموا كيف يخففون من مطالبهم المتبادلة إذا ما أرادوا أن يتركوا لأنفسهم أثرا طيبا في المجتمع الذي وضعوا به"

تدور الأحداث في مكان ما في الترويج، القرن التاسع عشر، حيث يحاول الجميع الظهور بملائكية وهمية.. ليس للمكان والزمان دور طالما تتكرر مجتمعات إبسن حتى الآن..
في بداية عصر الآلة يرفع صوته محتجا
"إني خائف على كل الناس الذين تسلبهم الآلات أرزاقهم. غالبا ما تتحدث يا سيدي عن التفكير في المجتمع. ولكني أعتقد أن للمجتمع واجباته كذلك. كيف يجرؤ العلم ورأس المال أن يدفع بهذه المخترعات إلى

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

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

Jul 20, 2014 Matthew rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
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

Not my favorite Ibsen ,I think the fourth act was not as marvelous as his other plays.But still him:powerful.
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

Oh, man. I'm a total sucker for this play. It might be one of my favorite plays I've ever read. I probably shouldn't be typing a review so soon after reading it. I'm also curious to know if I would have enjoyed it so much seeing it performed. I usually find drama to be either overly melodramatic or plodding, but Ibsen hits the sweet spot of balancing the entertaining with the thought-provoking. I also kind of hate myself for loving the ending, which was so contrived and purposely "happy." Truly, ...more
This play is actually a bit of a disappointment to me. Ibsen sets Pillars of Society up to be a great tragedy in the end, but it resolves itself in a very unexpected and disappointing happy ending that results in everything magically being okay again. I think that this makes the play a lot different that the rest of Ibsen's plays, considering that Ibsen wasn't really known to end things on a happy note.

I can't even really remember the true plot of this play (I apologize), but I do know that thi

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

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!
Toon Pepermans
more like 3.5/5, the depiction of corruption is really great, but the ending could have been better, as many have said before

Ibsen is held to be the greatest of Norwegian authors and one of the most important playwrights of all time, celebrated as a national symbol by Norwegians.

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