Description

Brand is a play by the Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen. It is a verse tragedy, written in 1865 and first performed in Stockholm, Sweden on 24 March 1867. Brand was an intellectual play that provoked much original thought. Brand is a priest who wants to take consequence of his choices, and is therefore deeply bound to doing the "right thing." He believes primarily in the will of man, and lives by the device "all or nothing." To make compromises is therefore difficult, or by his moral standards questionable at best. His picture of God is clearly derived from the Old Testament. His beliefs render him lonely in the end, as people around him, when put to the test, as a rule cannot or will not follow his example. Brand is arguably a young idealist with a main purpose: to save the world, or at least Man's soul. His visions are great, but his judgment of others may seem harsh and unfair. The word "Brand" means fire in Danish, Norwegian and Swedish.show more
