A Thing or Two About Ibsen contains some thirty essays wherein objects connected with the dramatist himself are addressed in light of his life and work and put into a cultural-historical context. The objects that surrounded him in his daily life serve to open the door to different aspects of Ibsenīs poetic universe. The objects come from the Ibsen museums in Skien, Grimstad and Oslo, but also from private collections, theatre archives, etc.

A Thing or Two About Ibsen is a deluxe edition in a richly illustrated format. Although there is currently a great deal that has been written about Ibsen, never before has a work been published that addresses Ibsenīs life and personal possessions in light of general cultural history. In the final analysis, this vantage point has provided new perspectives on factual matters also in terms of Ibsenīs literary works. The contributors come from a wide range of different academic fields.
