The author comments on Norwegian poet and dramatist Henrik Ibsen and his works. It is noted that many groups of people such as the feminists and the socialists have used and praised Ibsen's criticisms of society. According to the author, a determination to agree with nobody is the only consistent and recurring element in Ibsen's philosophy. The author states that in most the plays created by Ibsen, the individual is always right and the society is always wrong.
