The Works of Henrik Ibsen Brand free pdf Excerpt from The Works of Henrik Ibsen Brand Brand, "a dramatic poem," was written in the summer of 1865, at Ariccia, near Rome. Fifteen months before, Ibsen had left Christiania, a voluntary exile, eager to escape from the narrow Scandinavian world, and burning with the sense of national disgrace. Denmark was in the throes of the heroic but hopeless struggle to which her northern kinsmen had sent only a handful of volunteers. He had travelled southward, almost within hearing of the Prussian guns- and among the passengers on the steamer was that venerable silver-haired mother who, as his sarcastic verses tell, believed so firmly in the safety of her soldier-son, and with such good ground, "for he was a Norwegian soldier." In Berlin he witnessed the triumphal entry of King William, with the spoils of Dybbol. The visible sign of the humiliation of Denmark symbolised for him the moral abasement of his own country- and this poignant experience set stirring in him the idea of a poem in which the national shame should be mercilessly brought home. This, Ibsen has told us in one of his illuminating letters on the history of the poem, was the germ of Brand. But the germ ripened slowly and with difficulty. It had to compete with other literary plans and with new seductions. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
