Henrik Ibsen is one of the most famous and controversial writers in world literature. Born in Norway in 1828, his plays would eventually make him a household name.

Ibsen is a founder of the Modernist theater movement, a style of theater that focused on domestic interactions. The goal of realism was to create theater that resembled real life and had dialogue that sounded more natural.

Ibsen is best known for the play "A Doll's House," which deals with the limitations and harsh expectations of women at the time. As a whole, however, his plays broke new ground and earned him the nickname "The Father of Realism."
