Closer To Later Ibsen Writes About Moral Dilemmas Like No to later Ibsen writes about moral dilemmas like no else Here it is dilemma of whether to tell someone a truth that Here it is dilemma of whether to tell someone a truth that ruin their lifeAnd Ibsen seems to have such magical ability to make characters real in your mind s eye in no time It needs novelists hundreds of pages to develop characters Not Ibsen You could know exactly how they are going to act Some readers seem to think that predictability is a bad thing in fiction It isn t altogather IMO I am inclined to think that only bad artists depend on shocks Ibsen s genuis is in showing that how inevitable the fates of his characters isIt seems that if we suffer too big a breach on our trust in one uarter it affects our ability to trust in all uarters In this case Ekdal ended up suspecting even his innocent little daughter of having malign intentions If he loves The Wild Duck and he wishes he had written it he wants to be Ibsen for ust that moment and dedicate his play to someone who s been kind to him is that lying It isn t as bad as people doing work they have no respect for at all Everybody has that feeling when they look at a work of art and it feeling when they look at a work of art and it right that sudden familiarity a sort of recognition as though they were creating it themselves as though it were being created through them while they look at it or listen to it and it shouldn t be sinful to want to have created beautyWilliam Gaddis The Recognitions I didn t know that in Norway the meaning is lies and not idealsThere was no reason for me to know that but it seems importantPeople might walk around on top of colder ground or warmer underneath their many feet with a different person to other person language dictionary Gregers has a doorstop dictionary book It has fine print that all mean truth ustice and the way Your foot will have to be chopped off if he drops his word bombs on your life Or not if your person to person dictionary has other words in it.
