In the male-dominated society of the late 1800s Henrik Ibsen, the “Father of Modern Drama,” tells the story of a strong woman who is oppressed by a narcissistic and domineering husband and makes a choice which violates the Victorian view of marriage and the family.  Ibsen’s “drama of Ideas” created a “storm of outraged controversy” when it was published in 1879 and subsequently translated into many other languages. While certainly not as shocking today, this example of early realism still provides enduring power and significance.
