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.

Finished "The League of Youth" out of this set. Didn't like it at all. Unlike his other plays with very poignant characters, this one felt like a really bad Tolstoy with so many fuzzy characters the whole thing just became vague and the point was lost amidst.

"Pillars of Society" was different than the other Ibsens--still dealt with keeping face in public, but #1, it deliciously did not have the ironic ending twist, and #2, had a happy ending if you can believe it!
