Norwegian literature of the late 19-th century is a phenomenon of major interest in European literature. One of its greatest names is Henrik Ibsen. H. Ibsen renovated and enriched the contents and techniques of the modern European drama. In some of his best plays such as Brandy, Peer Gynt, A dolls house, Hedda Gabler etc, through a philosophical poetic character, the author aims at stimulating intense, ongoing debate and discussion on existentialist themes. The turning point in his literary career is marked by the play A dolls house in which the question of women liberty and dignity is strongly and effectively dealt with. Ibsen introduced new elements into the traditional play form thus breaking new ground in developing modern drama with the powerful characters he created and major topics of discussion he triggered in the cultural debate of his time
