    Das erste Mal, dass ich einen frühen Ibsen lese. Gelesen, weil ich es am Nationaltheater in Oslo auf Norwegisch sehen werde. Entstanden, bevor Ibsen sich zum sozialkritischen Realisten gewandelt hat. Sehr melodramatisch und nationalromantisch (das Stück spielt in der Wikingerzeit), und äusserst spannend und unterhaltsam. Hjørdis ist bereits eine starke und zwiespältige Frauenfigur, die sich in der männerdominierten Rache- und Ehre-Gesellschaft nicht entfalten kann und darauf mit Bitterkeit, Verh Das erste Mal, dass ich einen frühen Ibsen lese.

Hjørdis ist bereits eine starke und zwiespältige Frauenfigur, die sich in der männerdominierten Rache- und Ehre-Gesellschaft nicht entfalten kann und darauf mit Bitterkeit, Verhärtung und Manipulation reagiert. Die restlichen Figuren sind eher Stereotypen. Wäre der perfekte romantische Opernstoff gewesen, und Ibsen hatte tatsächlich in späteren Jahren mal den Plan, ein Opernlibretto für Grieg daraus zu machen. Wurde leider nichts daraus.

    Oh, I loved this one. Was soooooo close to a 5 star but fell just a tad short in the end (view spoiler)[ "fell" short... what a groaner! (hide spoiler)] . I found this a compelling story of family, one with attempt of reuniting, but with secrets in the past things start to unravel to lots of drama, tragedy and the battle of wills and morals. So good! Plus: vikings. All good. Definitely will re-read this one as well as seek out to see if there are productions of it kicking around. A great read. Oh, I loved this one.

    Konflikt og intriger i en overbevisende sagaverden. Hurra! Hvorfor lager ingen en slags "spaghetti western" av denne? Stykket begynner med en duell mellom to tilsynelatende fremmede, men det viser seg å være svigerfag og svigersønn. Svigerfar kommer til Norge fra Island for ærens skyld, da han har blitt frarøvet en datter og fosterdatter uten betaling (huff!). Svigersønn stiller med glede opp, men det viser seg at fosterdattera har blod på tann. Jeg savner en avsluttende Sergio Leone-aktig duell Konflikt og intriger i en overbevisende sagaverden. Hurra!

Jeg savner en avsluttende Sergio Leone-aktig duell, men ellers føler jeg at det må minimale endringer til for å nå et moderne publikum. Dette skal også ha vært det mest oppførte av Ibsens stykker på hans egen tid.

    یک تراژدی عاشقانه بسیار زیبا با ترجمه ای روان و خوب. یک روایت کهن نروژی که به خوبی در قالب نمایش نشسته.

    Ibsen's early plays alternate between poetic romances and historical dramas, often of a nationalist flavour. Certainly we don't get more stereotypically Norwegian than a play about Vikings, the subject of Ibsen's third play based on the national history of his country, and his seventh play in total. The story is not especially remarkable. It revolves around two Vikings, the peaceable Gunnar and the courageous Sigurd. Both are married to a wife who would perhaps have been better suited to the othe Ibsen's early plays alternate between poetic romances and historical dramas, often of a nationalist flavour. Certainly we don't get more stereotypically Norwegian than a play about Vikings, the subject of Ibsen's third play based on the national history of his country, and his seventh play in total. The story is not especially remarkable. It revolves around two Vikings, the peaceable Gunnar and the courageous Sigurd. Both are married to a wife who would perhaps have been better suited to the other warrior. Sigurd's wife is loving and timid, and hardly a good match for the ambitious fighter. Gunnar is married to the dangerously passionate Hjordis. It is Hjordis who drives the story along, inciting conflicts between the two men, and indeed her own adopted father, leading to a growing sense of tragedy. She is not the first harpy in Ibsen's fiction, In fact the relationship between her, Sigurd and Dagny (Sigurd's wife) echoes that of the three protagonists in Cataline. Indeed, Ibsen will go on to portray many more such female characters, culminating in Hedda Tesman, who greatly resembles Hjordis. The essential dilemma facing Sigurd is also a familiar one for anyone who has rid Ibsen's other plays. The hero has a choice between the dutiful wife, or the exciting other woman. Both options spell death for the hero - the stultifying death-in-life of his placid wife that hardly meets his passionate needs, or the wild and dangerous freedom of choosing who he wants, that will eventually culminate in his actual death. Beneath this, we can see another dilemma that this choice symbolises. That is, the choice between duty (often a negative word in Ibsen's world) and freedom. To choose one is to be trapped by the past and to risk losing one's happiness. To choose the other option is to be irresponsible or dissolute. This dilemma will continue throughout Ibsen's later works, and is never truly resolved. The play is an interesting addition to Ibsen's category. The plot is far less convoluted than his last nationalistic play, Lady Inger of Ostrat, and contains fewer contrivances than his other romantic plays (although it is still heavily-contrived). There are moments of real pathos (Ornulf, Dagne and Hjordis's father, rescuing Gunnar's son, only to learn that Gunnar has killed his own son instead) and psychological interest (the scene in the third act where Sigurd and Hjordis confess and discover the depths of their feelings for one another). These fine passages help to compensate for the rather mundane plot.

    this was such a pleasure to read: very cinematographical. And I just loved Hjørdis.

    تنها اثری که تا به اینجا از دورۀ متقدم ــ و کمتر شناخته‌شدۀ ایبسن برای ما ــ خوانده‌ام. طبعاً به قوت آثار نیمۀ‌دوم کارنامه و حتی آثار دورۀ انتقال نبود، اما همچنان صحنه‌های کوبنده‌ای داشت. ضمناً رشته‌های قوی پیوند ایبسن با تراژدی‌های یونانی را هم خیلی خوب نشان می‌داد، مده‌ئا در سرتاسر اثر حی و حاضر بود.‏ با ترجمۀ مهدیان «براند» ایبسن را هم خوانده بودم و به اعتبار همین دو ترجمه می‌توان او را از بهترین مترجمین فارسی ایبسن شمرد. هیچ نمی‌شناسمش و کاش می‌شد اطلاعات بیشتری از او جست.‏

    Hjördis would whip Hedda and Nora in a fight. With her eyes closed. Could stand her ground with Xena or Buffy too for that matter. Just saying.

    Some thrilling moments but not an easy read; there’s much mistaken identity, pride, vengeance, secret and irrelevant true love, and lots of dead bodies.

    Tragic. Nobel vs Ignoble. Marriage vows must be eternal to result in an eternal marriage.

    Vikings´s version of Romeo and Juliet plus blood, gore, and female Valkyries Who has better credentials than Henrik Ibsen, a true blue Norwegian himself, to write a play about ancient Vikings and their royal matrimonial chaos and bloody feuds?? Given the current wave of Vikings mania sweeping the world, thanks to the adventures of Ragnar Lodbrok and Rollo Rodbrok, there is extra zing in reading this short but very exciting play. Though short, it coveyed all the Vikings honor, savagery, romance, a Vikings´s version of Romeo and Juliet plus blood, gore, and female Valkyries Who has better credentials than Henrik Ibsen, a true blue Norwegian himself, to write a play about ancient Vikings and their royal matrimonial chaos and bloody feuds?? Given the current wave of Vikings mania sweeping the world, thanks to the adventures of Ragnar Lodbrok and Rollo Rodbrok, there is extra zing in reading this short but very exciting play. Though short, it coveyed all the Vikings honor, savagery, romance, and the influence of Christianity on their religious beliefs. Many quotable quotes. My favourite quote is from the brave and honorable Sigurd who became a Christian, thanks to King Athelston. SIGURD. Man´s will can do this and that; but fate rules in the deeds that shape our lives - so has it gone with us twain.

    At last that I read a play about vikings of past by the revered Ibsen, who being Norwegian, cannot be more qualified to write this tale of Romeo and Juliet, Viking style. With the benefit of watching the three seasons of Ragnar Lodbrok of Vikings (History Channel), there is more zing reading this play that is just right in length (2 hours of read). The settings, the feasting rooms, the armour and ax has been faithfully replicated by the TV series.

    My favorite line from this wonderful viking play is “ Man´s will can do this and that; but fate rules in the deeds that shape our lives”。 This play, in short, is a Romeo and Juliet story, viking style. I prefer the viking version because it has a more authentic, more maturity, and greater long suffering involved. Who has better credentials than Henrik Ibsen, a true blue Norwegian himself, to write a play about ancient Vikings and their royal matrimonial chaos and bloody feuds??

    誰比易卜生更有资格憑據去寫劇本關於古代維京人及其皇室婚姻的混亂和血腥爭鬥呢?易比生本身是一個真正的藍挪威人,刚好这个时候,鑑於海盜熱潮席捲全球的電流波形,這要歸功於維京人朗納爾•洛德布羅克 Ragnar Lodbrok和羅洛•洛德布羅克 Rolo Lodbrok的冒險经历,如能讀這篇短剧本,会更令人興奮的發揮額外的尖嘯聲。雖然剧本短,它能傳達了所有維京人的榮譽,野性,浪漫,还有基督教對他們宗教信仰的影響。許多新書報價。我最喜歡的名言是勇敢和可敬西格爾德誰成為基督徒,感謝英国王Athelston。 书里我最欣赏的 一句真言是:”人將可以做這做那; 但最终是命運塑造我們的生活事蹟規則”
