Ibsen Between Cultures

Frode Helland (Editor), Julie Holledge (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportAnthologypeer-review


The articles in this collection were produced by a team of international scholars collaborating on a research project entitled 'Ibsen Between Cultures'; it was funded by the Norwegian Research Council. The general aim of the project was to interrogate how we can account for the extraordinary international success of Ibsen's plays. Its specific goal was to reach new understandings of Ibsen's function as a global dramatist, and evaluate how the plays are altered, shifted, transferred and appropriated as they are localised to new cultural contexts. What happens to 'Ibsen' when he becomes an Indian, Bangladeshi, or Chinese dramatist? The articles that make up this collection address this question.
