Little Eyolf by Henrik Ibsen
By: (1828-1906)

Little Eyolf by Henrik Ibsen is a powerful and thought-provoking play that delves into the complexities of family dynamics, grief, guilt, and redemption. The story follows the Allmers family as they navigate the aftermath of a tragic event that leaves them grappling with their own demons and unresolved emotions.

The characters in the play are deeply flawed and multifaceted, making them both relatable and intriguing. The dynamics between the family members are tense and fraught with unspoken tensions, adding layers of complexity to their interactions.

Ibsen's writing is both poetic and stark, drawing the reader in with its rich imagery and emotional depth. The themes of love, loss, and the search for meaning permeate the story, offering a poignant exploration of human nature and the complexities of relationships.

Overall, Little Eyolf is a compelling and thought-provoking read that will linger in the mind long after the final page is turned. Ibsen's exploration of the human psyche and the nature of love and loss is as relevant today as it was when the play was first written.

Book Description:
Henrik Ibsen's 1894 play Little Eyolf tells the story of the Allmers family: the father, Alfred, his wife Rita, their crippled nine-year-old son Eyolf, and Alfred's sister Asta. As the play begins, Alfred has just gotten back from a trip to the mountains, and resolves to spend more time with his son, rather than on intellectual pursuits. Asta is romantically pursued by Borgheim, an engineer, while the cracks in Alfred and Rita's marriage gradually reveal themselves. The family receives a visit from the Rat-Wife, and are never the same again.
