When We Dead Awaken

Henrik Ibsen (1828 - 1906)
Translated by William Archer (1856 - 1924)

When We Dead Awaken (1899) is the last play by Norwegian dramatist Henrik Ibsen. Dreamlike and highly symbolic, the play charts the dissolution of sculptor Arnold Rubek's marriage to Maia, her flirtation with Ulfheim, and his involvement with the mysterious Irene, his former model. The tensions rise between the characters as they climb higher and higher into the Norwegian mountains. (Summary by Elizabeth Klett)
