Blog Post

This bio has an interesting claim. It says Ibsen's "marriage was
joyless, but a few episodes of friendship with young women broke the
austerity of his life." Considering the commitment his wife shows him
(see Kyle's post). But it definitely seems like he wrote about the
woes of social convention as much as possible, and pushed the envelope
on what was acceptable in terms of material for the stage. The bio
linked above says he wrote in his plays against conformity and
conventions, saying that they destroyed happiness. The bio also has a
few quotes of his, and he seems to be rather the feminist.
