Short biography
Ibsen started writing plays in 1849 but was not successful until "Brand," a dramatic poem published in 1866.  "A Doll's House" was the play that finally made him internationally famous about 10 years after it was written in 1879.  He suffered a stroke in 1900 and stopped writing after that.
