ABSTRACT
This article profiles Nowegian poet and playwright Henrik Ibsen. Ibsen was a poet during the earlier part of his life. He began as a lyricist, and his first plays are either in verse or are inspired by an imaginative contemplation of the past. His continued interest in avalanches, water, trees, fire, mines, high places, traveling, was not accidental. The source of Ibsen's poetry is indefinable; presumably it comes from the same place as his view of human nature, otherwise they would not harmonize as they do in his art.
