Più delle mie povere parole può la musica di Edvard Grieg.
Vari colori, toni ed emozioni che Ibsen sa suscitare e che Grieg ha saputo esprimere.

1) La fresca meraviglia per l'esistente e per il possibile

2) La vitalità del folklore scandinavo

3) L'amore filiale (Peer culla la madre verso la morte raccontandole una delle sue fantasticherie... in questo punto mi è sceso il lacrimone :'-( )

4) L'amore sensuale, l'irretimento

5) L'amore romantico, fedele

Scusate se è poco, in effetti in Peer Gynt c'è molto di più. ( )

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. ( )

I love the music. And the book gives the story to go with it. It's not nearly as dark as the later work by Ibsen. ( )

One of the most unique plays of Ibsen. I read it shortly before seeing it performed on stage. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0140441670, Paperback)

This high-spirited poetical fantasy, based on Norwegian folklore, is the story of an irresponsible, lovable hero. After its publication, Ibsen abandoned the verse form for more realistic prose plays.

(see all 6 descriptions)

Among the masterpieces of world literature, this great verse drama by Norway's famed playwright humorously yet profoundly explores the virtues, vices, and follies common to all humanity as it follows the roguish life of a charming but arrogant young man. A literary delight since it was first published in 1875.… (more)
