ideal I m still trying to wrap my head around this work and I m not I m still trying to wrap my head around this work and I m not sure that i am able to write sure that I am able to write very thoughtful review at this time but I ll attempt it I read this just after finishing A Doll s House which was my first encounter with Ibsen and one that I enjoyed very much This work is much darker in tone and it is perhaps because it rattled me so much with its tragic ending that I lean toward giving it 4 stars rather than 5 but then I also think that for the work to have so affected me that I perhaps should award it 5 stars Like A Doll s House this play leaves the readerviewer thinking long after the final act It is so full of symbolism and particularly religious symbolism that it could be pondered for some time without unearthing all of its many treasures And like A Doll s House it also deals with a family that is content but whose apparent happiness is founded on lies and deception Is it better to follow the ideal and root out truth or to live out what Dr Relling calls the vital lie often translated as the life lie that lie that eeps one going forward As in ancient works this interplay between truth and lies is symbolized by things like sight and blindness light and dark And Gregers idealism his uest for truth no matter the social conseuences is the force that brings and dark And Gregers idealism his uest for truth no matter the social conseuences is the force that brings ruin to the Ekdal household Whereas I feel that I would enjoy seeing a production of A Doll s House I am not so sure about The Wild Duck But perhaps with the passing of time this will change Somewhere between 3 and 4 st. This 1884 masterpiece may have had its genesis in the hostile reception Ibsen widely regarded as the father of modern realist drama had received from the Norwegian public and critics for “Ghosts” which gave theater goers a larger dose of truth than most were willing to bear His next three plays The Wild Duck An Enemy of the People and Rosmersholm.

Unfortunately the truth involving scandal illegitimacy imprisonment and madness only serves to wound the Ekdals further In the play the wild duck is a symbol of this injured family and perhaps of the loss of Ibsen's youthful idealismMoving and powerful this thought provoking tragedy shows clearly why Ibsen is regarded as one of the giants of modern theater. .
Ars closer to later Ibsen writes about moral dilemmas like no one else Here it is dilemma of whether to tell someone a truth that might ruin their lifeAnd Ibsen seems to have such magical ability to make characters real in your mind s eye in no time It needs novelists hundreds of pages to develop characters Not Ibsen You could now exactly how they are going to act Some readers seem to think that predictability is a bad thing in fiction It isn t altogather IMO I am inclined to think that only bad artists depend on shocks Ibsen s genuis is in showing that how inevitable the fates of his characters isIt seems that if we suffer too big a breach on our trust in one uarter it affects our ability to trust in all uarters In this case Ekdal ended up suspecting even his innocent little daughter of having malign intentions Vildanden The Wild Duck Henrik IbsenThe Wild Duck an 1884 play by the Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen Characters H on Werle a wholesale merchant Gregers Werle his son Old Ekdal the former business partner of H on Werle Hjalmar Ekdal Old Ekdal s son a photographer Gina Ekdal his wife Their Daughter Aged their aged Mrs S rby housekeeper and fiancee of H on Werle Relling a doctor lives below the Ekdals Molvik formerly a student of theology lives below the Ekdals Pettersen servant to H The Sun Shines Over the Sanggan River kon Werle Jensen a hired waiter Mr Balle a dinner guest Mr Flor a dinner guest 1994 1372 207 1387 176 1394 2222 9786007806173 19 1379 174 964632830 1396 227 9789644310935 From BBC radio 3 Drama on 3David Threlfall Samuel West and James Fox star in Henrik Ibsen s masterpiece as strong on comedy as profound tragic drama A family creates an imaginary forest Focused on the conseuences of telling the truth or forbearing to do soIn The Wild Duck the idealistic son of a corrupt merchant exposes his father's duplicity but in the process destroys the very people he wishes to save Convinced that reality is always superior to illusion Gregers Werle forces his friends the Ekdals to face the truth about their lives.
