    1. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I like Ibsen's plays (at least, those in this volume), although they are rather bleak. I didn't find them depressing or cautionary but rather just sort of nihilistic. I'm sure there are certain cautions we can read into these plays, lessons to be learned, but I don't think that's what Ibsen intended. I like what Forster had to say about him (from the criticism in the back of this volume)--that if his characters were ever happy or content, those things disap [...]

    2. The first time I heard of Ibsen as a playwright was in a movie from the 80s called "Educating Rita". He was material found on syllabi of world lit courses. His plays were written in the late 19th century but were quite ahead of his time. He captures the angst and displacement of modernity in his characters. Peer Gynt and a Doll's house, and Hedda Gabler are his most famous plays in the U.S. I think I would love to see performances of these plays.
