    One thought on “Peer Gynt”

    1. Την ιστορία του Πέερ Γκυντ την άκουσα για πρώτη φορά στο Θέατρο της Κυριακής. Ήταν από μια παλιότερη ηχογράφηση του Θεάτρου της Τετάρτης. Πρωταγωνιστής ήταν ο Δημήτρης Παπαμιχαήλ. Το ραδιοφωνικό θέατρο, έχει μια ιδιαίτερη γοητεία. Ας πούμε θυμάμαι μια συγκεκριμένη ιστορία [...]

    2. This week I finally got round to checking out Peer GyntA celebrated rhymed drama by Henrik Ibsen, inn't?To get the full effect, you need to read it in NorwegianOr possibly translated to other languages of that regionEarlier epics in verse, I can think the author built onBut I'd be willing to bet a krona that none of them was Milton(As a neighboring country might perhaps say, fy fan,A work that's a good deal closer is Byron's Don Juan.)Gynt is a liar, a blackguard, a general cadSomehow we're left [...]

    3. In the late fall of 1987, an awkward lad of 17, I fell in love with a married woman (view spoiler)[that killed herself (hide spoiler)]. OK, she was a character in an Ibsen play, but Hedda Gabler was the first fictional heroine that I really fell for. My highschool Literature class read Ibsen's Hedda Gabler, then A Doll's House as part of our fall course reading; hooked, I purchased all of the Penguin Classics of Ibsen at the local Waldenbooks (remember that place in the age pre-Internet, Barnes [...]

    4. The Tragedy of the Selfish Life2 July 2013 It was interesting that as I was finishing this play it just happened that a Norweigan was sitting opposite me on the train and made a comment about how he didn't think that anybody actually read Ibsen outside of Norway, though he also mentioned that Ibsen is among the four greatest playwrights of Norway (and considering I don't know who the other three are, and that I have heard of Isben, and Peer Gynt, since I read the Secret Diary of Adrian Mole). Ob [...]

    5. I have to confess; I only read this for the trolls.But I enjoyed it for the social satire and the dissection of selfhood. (view spoiler)[The trolls were pretty cool too, though. (hide spoiler)]

    6. "Our age reminds one of the dissolution of the Greek city-state: Everything goes on as usual and yet there is no longer anyone who believes in it. The invisible spiritual bond which gives it validity, no longer exists, and so the whole age is at once comic and tragic--tragic because it is perishing, comic because it goes on." - Søren Kierkegaard This was written before Ibsen decided to shift toward the genre he would pioneer--realism. This is one of the last of the major 19th century romantic w [...]

    7. I write this review with more than a little trepidation as one of my best friends is on his way to being, if he isn't already, an Ibsen scholar. So while writing this I imagine him here with me, just waiting to unleash his Olympian store of knowledge against my piddling review. But, you know, I'm nothing if not a challenge seeker, so here we are.I read a collection of Ibsen's about two years ago, specifically The Wild Duck, Ghosts, Doll's House, and an Enemy of the People. I enjoyed them all imm [...]

    8. Ja, und erneut bin ich hin und hergerissen. - Etliche Jahre schleiche ich um dieses von Ibsens Werken, da ich beim Anlesen der ersten Seite stets merkte, hierbei muss ich mich gut konzentrieren.Nun wagte ich also das Unterfangen und es ließ sich sogar ordentlich an. Die ersten drei Akte lasen sich durchaus spannend, wobei mir besonders das Aufeinandertreffen Peer Gynts mit Trollen, Kobolden und Wichtelmännern gefiel. Einen weiteren Reiz sah ich in Gynts unmöglichen und selbstverliebten Charak [...]

    11. One of the great works of world literature. A Norwegian Faust. Easily Ibsen's greatest achievement, and one of the most penetrating studies of the modern soul--it's also hilarious! I read this one all the time.Enjoy.------Reading it again, November 2010. Am I the only one who thinks this is maybe the best piece of literature in the last 200 years?

    12. I don't know what to make of this play. It seems considerably different from the other Ibsen plays I have read, almost a fantasy mixed with a morality play I liked the rhyming aspect and there were some funny parts but overall, I was just confused and it went on too long.

    13. I tried reading this years ago but grew bored and abandoned it halfway through. My second attempt at reading it has proved to be much more successful. I thoroughly enjoyed this story of a compulsive liar and romancer who nonetheless has amazing adventures and never quite succumbs to the temptation to lose his egotism! There are trolls and witches and monsters aplenty to keep him on his toes.Peer Gynt is a play but it reads almost like a novel in verse. It must be a difficult play to stage becaus [...]

    14. PEER: I will not die! I must ashore!THE PASSENGER: Oh, as for that, be reassured;- one dies not midmost of Act Five. (Glides away.)I read this book since we were studying the Peer Gynt Suites in Art History this year, and I figured it would be fun to listen to them after having read the play they were based off of. When my teacher said this book was really weird, strangely funny, and somehow, serious, I didn't get it. Now, I do.Peer Gynt is about a boy who gets into my more trouble and causes mo [...]

    15. Peer Gynt is Ibsen's most famous work and possibly the most famous work of Norwegian literature. It would be tempting therefore to say that it needs no introduction, but of course it does. It seems unlikely that anyone who has never read Peer Gynt has a clue what the story is about. Of course, this is true of many literary classics, but there are certain reasons that make it especially true of Peer Gynt.It seems likely that a number of people will have formed a misleading view of the play, based [...]

    17. Well, this is a strange play. Trolls; sphinxes; Turkish slave girls; Norwegian folk dancing; an asylum full of lunatics satirising Swedish non-involvement in the Prusso-Danish war; lots and lots (and lots) of sex Oh, and it's all in verse. I have no idea how you would even begin to stage this thing. It's a five act play that must run for an ungodly number of hours, and the action skips across time and space with a lack of concern for the practicalities of the average theatre house that's truly b [...]

    18. Henrik Ibsenin klassikkonäytelmä Peer Gynt on tullut itselleni tutuksi lähinnä Edvard Griegin säveltämänä musiikkina. Olinkin sen vuoksi hieman pettynyt siihen, millainen hahmo Peer Gynt oikeasti on. Odotin nimittäin jotain J.R.R. Tolkienin Hobitin tyyppistä: enemmän seikkailua, peikkoja ja vuoria. Peer Gynt yllätti minut toistuvasti, välillä kielenkäytöllään, välillä moderniudellaan. Peer on kova naistenmies eikä hän kauaa yhden naisen perässä jaksa olla, vaan himojen ko [...]

    19. En oikein saanut otetta tästä teoksesta. Koko näytelmä tuntui hieman sekavalta, koska se pyrki kattamaan liian monia aikajaksoja ja asioita yhtäaikaa. Nuoruus, keski-ikä ja vanhuus käsitellään näytelmän aikana ja mahtuupa mukaan myös peikkoja ja yleistä suuruudenhulluutta sekä kuolemanpelkoa. Nämä moninaiset elementit tekivät näytelmästä valitettavasti vain vaikeaselkoisemman ja sitä myötä epäkiinnostavamman, sillä kaikista tapahtumista ja siitä, mikä niistä johti mih [...]

    20. "پیرگونت" از کارهای اولیه ی ایبسن است که از فولکور مردم نروژ استفاده کرده و نظیر "براند"، بیشتر در کشورهای اسکاندیناوی مشهور است. ایبسن نظریه ای را که با "براند" آغاز کرده بود، در "پیر گونت" ادامه داد! او که ابتدا خود را شکسپیر دیگری می دانست که در نیمه ی دوم قرن نوزدهم ظهور کرده. پ [...]

    21. I read the Christopher Fry translation of this yesterday at the V&A Theatre archives. Beatrix and Roy Dotrice were in the original production (of that translation) at the Chichester Festival. I've seen a couple of Ibsen's plays but they were mostly straight forward social dramas so I wasn't expecting this at all. I loved the monsters, the lies, the trolls, the travel. It was almost impossible to imagine this as a play as the sets ranged from Norway, to Egypt. There were so many different pla [...]

    22. 4 StarsIbsen is still alive through his work today. He has captivated the world with his plays and I feel like a lot of it has to do with the fact that he knew people and our faults. He wasn’t afraid to tackle the depth of the human soul. We recognize ourself and our society even today and it makes his works timeless. Peer Gynt is no exeption. It is written as a mix between a play and poetry and it works amazingly well. There’s a nice flow and it’s easy do get drawn into the imagination of [...]

    23. Ibsen's Peer Gynt is one of those rare, multifaceted characters whose narrative brilliance makes me want to re-read until every ounce of meaning is extracted. There are numerous and often conflicting aspects to it that only make one devour it: the larger-than-life quest for self but also the play of self; the identity calibrated to the illusion; God the merciful and God the merciless; home as a dream, as a dreamland, as a nightmare. Even though it might feel a tad outdated today, particularly in [...]

    24. I'm not entirely sure what I think of this book. I can't say I actually enjoyed reading it, I didn't really like the story that much and I couldn't really relate to it. I do however understand why Ibsen is such an important figure in literature. His writing is exceptional and I'm definitely going to read more of his works.

    25. Why did I read this, when who reads Ibsen after high school any more??We recently took a cruise down the Norwegian coast, and one of the highlights for me was sitting on the deck, watching the fjords go by, while the loudspeaker blared Edvard Grieg's Peer Gynt opera music- it was beautiful, magical, and made me realize that I didn't know anything about the play.The play was written 150 years ago about Peer, a Norwegian peasant boy, and his adventures, and it includes lots of Norwegian folklore, [...]
