Dr. Maren Johnson, Luther College’s Associate Professor of Nordic Studies and Torgerson Center for Nordic Studies Director, facilitates a monthly bokprat, discussing Scandinavian authors and Scandinavian life. Join us in March for a discussion of Ibsen’s play Ghosts.
First performed in 1882, Ghosts is the controversial and tragic play by the famed Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen. Scandalous in its day for its frank discussion of venereal disease, marital infidelity, incest, and euthanasia, Ghosts continues to resonant with modern audiences for its intense psychological drama and sharp social criticism.
