The Wild Duck was so much than I thought it would be, it was all I could want, hope for in a play It marked the beginning of a new era in Ibsen s work In my edition, the introduction was a discussion into Ibsen s work signifying a change in his style, thinking and his ideals I loved reading the introduction because I love such things but I also cannot help dozing off at these things, the play took me a day, the Introduction a few I was not reading it every day, continuously, because of time constraints I had wanted to read it for so long now and unexpectedly it was super easy to get into Less is , it was complex in its simplicity, hopeful in its hopelessness, bright in its bleakness, cheery in its sadness, fulfilling in its emptiness, its hunger, its thirst, peopled by loneliness It is sad yet not sad, bleak yet not bleak.I have only ever read Ghosts but I liked The Wild Duck so much better, it s a classic and definitely represents Ibsen in a higher state of mind, self Made me fall in love with Ibsen which I was hardly hoping to, ever.Ibsen s characters have a characteristic vitality, vivacity They believe in the quality of life, in living, in a higher purpose too They think and they act, fight back, make their presence known, seen, felt, not a passive character in sight thus giving insight into Ibsen s personality Loved The Wild Duck, this is what a play ought to be, not woody, not too much play ey, mechanical, unreal Some people would call it dry but it was perfect, perfect for me, it was than what I was looking for here.The play gives vent to three kinds of people, first who are self righteous to the point that they shove their ideals down people s throats, second who give people their life lies to be happy and the third are the victims to these.There is this one funny, amazing thing I discovered, the ideals of these kinds of people work on adults but you cannot control a child, children are God s free creatures, they can t stick to the script like their older fellows You cannot give a child their ideal and expect them to follow, they always form their own.The iconic title The Wild Duck, the metaphor, is so apt, so on point, like the play Even Ibsen knew while writing it that it was something, Writing to his publisher on 2 September 1884, he was moved to admit that he thought of this new work of his as something rather special, adding that his methods were new, and that some of the country s younger dramatists might possibly be encouraged by them to launch out along new tracks The play is short, concise, but so on point, so put together, hits the mark.Makes me want to read his plays in Norwegian because the essence of the writing lies also in the language For me to learn a language is, for the most part, for reading things in their original language and absorbing that actual creativity, the subtle nuances of the language where it came from.The play is about two best friends Hjalmar Ekdal and Gregers Werle and the pressures they are put under by their fathers Old Ekdal and Haakon Werle s history The play is enacted when they reunite after seventeen years yet are still haunted by the ghosts of the past The ghost of Gregers mother haunts Hjalmar s wife Gina, Gregers, Mr Werle and his housekeeper, Mrs Sorby Gina worked a little while as a housekeeper at Werle s home yet he still roams the halls of the Ekdal residence The pivotal character Hjalmar Ekdal was unfortunately awfully malleable but the most adoring and adorable character of the play He was my most favorite especially ought to the love he owed his father and the true love, despite the the momentary lapse and no matter what the outcome, he showed Hedvig Broken old sporty Ekdal was the second favorite, the loft and the forest, staring at him in astonishment Me Nothing here for me , The forest s revenge was awesome Hjalmar s daughter Hedvig was the most innocent and ironically a character full of life as ever I like Gregers, I really do, all his ideas and his actions up until he put Hedvig up to his messed up ideal which did work though, in many ways , made me really think of myself, because I can identify with him, and maybe that s what makes me like him I understand his sentiments, his ideals, I do but he overdid it, what he did He looked up to his friend but that cost Hjalmar everything, it did The most important character definitely was the Wild Duck It sets the tone for the play, the characters, the ending Ekdal She did that Always do that, wild ducks do Go plunging right to the bottom.as deep as they can get, my dear sir.hold on with their beaks to the weeds and stuff and all the other mess you find down there Then they never come up again It s funny how Gregers keeps calling Hjalmar the Wild Duck but it s Hedvig who comes out to be And given the little role he had, Relling was VERY interesting Relling Pretty nearly everybody s sick, unfortunately.Gregers And what treatment are you giving Hjalmar Relling The usual I try to keep his life lie going Hjalmar s fortunes were pretty much inversely proportional to Hedvig and old Ekdal s As they rose, his fell until they finally collapsed on Hedvig s infant breast The ending was pretty much resolved, but, in ways, it was open too It was the perfect ending, really pulled the play together at the end Amazing, amazing play Definitely recommended it s easy If he loves The Wild Duck and he wishes he had written it, he wants to be Ibsen for just 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 s 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 beauty William Gaddis The Recognitions I didn t know that in Norway the meaning is lies and not ideals.There was no reason for me to know that but it seems important.People 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, justice 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, powerful words Gregers If I should choose, I should like best to be a clever dog.Gina A dog Hedvig Involuntarily Oh, no Gregers Yes, an amazingly clever dog one that goes to the bottom after wild ducks when they dive and bite themselves fast in tangle and sea weed, down among the ooze.A long time ago Gregers started carrying his big book with him He didn t open it He slept with it, torched it in his heart and warmed himself His father, Werle, disobeyed the law of the word He slept with another under the house of his ailing wife He chased the housekeeper around the table until she gave in Gregers wrote in his book so he would not forget that his father massively dicked over Lieutenant Ekdal He takes his book with him to the works owned by his father and sells his silence to explode another day Mount I know better than you will erupt and it is a bitch to wipe ideals off all the mirrors in its kiss off lipstick.Son Ekdal, the man of the house Hialmar, is his ideal Man of his father s house, watching through a curtain for signs Father and son live by big word rituals Killing rabbits, felling trees, bring me a beer His sleeping dog that lies, his experiment, is the younger Ekdal Hialmar speaks a lot about his contentment, this so called great man as Gregers sees it He is a photographer who talks big words about some invention His wife, the housekeeper escaped from the prying mercy of a dirty old man, does all of the work Her husband loses his leash if she uses the wrong word This must be when he is reminded of her past as a housekeeper cleaning up rabies foam from stupid Werle senior He talks about his warm home, child bounding and big love, Ekdal junior The love of his life, his poor daughter Hedvig, doomed to loss of sight No need to tell her Stay with daddy, be loved She s big for her age of fourteen and she studies pictures in books and imagines herself at the depths of the sea The girl was onto something, drowning in the words with no meaning to her I hated them for her They had big books with no pictures for anyone else and big words like something Bobby Brown would dance around Punch you in the face If I were sitting at their table I would have seen lies than anyone Gina may or may not have fucked before she got together with her husband.Gregers Not exactly to that I don t say that your wing has been broken but you have strayed into a poisonous marsh, Hialmar an insidious disease has taken hold of you, and you have sunk down to die in the dark.Greger s leaves his book in dresser drawers in hotels for prostitutes and married men to find He opens to page forty two and it says that their marriage can begin again as a real marriage now that Hialmar knows the truth Who died and made Gregers the word Hialmar slinks off into a hissy fit of my daughter isn t my daughter, I can t look at you, oh I can t possibly think about my precious invention now that the world isn t to my grandstanding speeches in the kitchen over a beer.Pssst, Hedvig You should make a sacrifice Pictures say you are a coward, you can t do it It looks ghostly at the depths of the sea Pssst the sea snake hisses His words sound afraid at night like her prayers for her father and the wild duck When it is scary you ask for God to make it all right Please make it all right, please love me again, be my father again You should make a sacrifice and he will return to you It is a poisonous marsh in the day time and Greger s dog teeth bite her neck so she ll stay there You will make a sacrifice Hedvig shoots herself At the bottom of the depths of the sea it wouldn t have looked right to her to kill the duck Or maybe it was an accident It couldn t have looked right when all the lights are blotted out by the big words of the ideal Hialmar cries for her to wake up long enough for him to say he loved her again Gina says they couldn t have kept her forever Who the hell died and made them her parents Relling Oh, life would be quite tolerable, after all, if only we could be rid of the confounded duns that keep on pestering us, in our poverty, with the claim of the ideal.I almost wanted to be the dog and save the wild duck But Hialmar was not the duck I would want to save Hedvig But I don t know if she meant to kill herself or the duck I could tell myself stories about her, refract my vision to believe she would not have done either, would have woken up to the daytime outside of prayers Be a big grown girl But what was about Hialmar that Greger wanted to write as his idol of perfect truth Why was he the duck and Greger the dog Why did he lie about this silly man to live another day I wonder about the point he felt he had to make it become real, to open his big fat mouth I didn t feel sorry for the loss of their lie, rather that a better one wasn t told to Hedvig Let her read and paint pictures while she still could, if she really would go blind if they took her to a doctor my belief in this fictional world would be quite suspended I would want that one I am not any better than Greger I casted as the dog and the wild duck. . Mahcubiyet ve Haysiyet eserine ba lay nca anlad m ki en iyisi nce Yaban rde i eserini okumak,ta lar yerli yerine oturtmak i in, iyiki de yle yapm m Burda Ibsen i in doktor Relling ne durumda anlamak zor de il.Mefisto g revini stlenmi Relling ve kendini bir nevi Mesih rolunde g ren Gregers bunu kitab n sonuna do ru s yledi i san n son yeme ine do ru yapt at ftan anla ld tabii benim taraf mdan Masada on nc olmak la havariler ve sa Ayr ca benim ikilemim kendini sa m yoksa Yahuda m olarak g r yordu tam anlayamad m.Bunlar bana has d nceler kesinlikle, imdi di er kitaba y nelebilirim Ayr ca unuda ekleyebilirim yazar n hayat n okudu umda anlad m yazar burda kendi hayat ndan baz kesikleri Hjalmar da kendisi ile zle tirmi gibi geldi.D r st olmak , ahlak anlay ve nemi gibi kavramlar da ne koymu trajedik b r oyun, Much darker than the other play I read by him, The Doll s House The main questions in this play are how far should one go in pursuit of the truth and how much should somebody interfere with someone else s life in order to save that person I thought the ending was the only way this play could have ended. This 1884 masterpiece may have had its genesis in the hostile reception Ibsen widely regarded as the father of modern realist drama had received from the Norwegian public and critics for Ghosts , which gave theater goers a larger dose of truth than most were willing to bear His next three plays The Wild Duck , An Enemy of the People , and Rosmersholm focused on the consequences of telling the truth, or forbearing to do so.In The Wild Duck , the idealistic son of a corrupt merchant exposes his father s duplicity, but in the process destroys the very people he wishes to save Convinced that reality is always superior to illusion, Gregers Werle forces his friends, the Ekdals, to face the truth about their lives Unfortunately, the truth, involving scandal, illegitimacy, imprisonment, and madness, only serves to wound the Ekdals further In the play, the wild duck is a symbol of this injured family, and perhaps of the loss of Ibsen s youthful idealism.Moving and powerful, this thought provoking tragedy shows clearly why Ibsen is regarded as one of the giants of modern theater. Ich habe inzwischen eine Reihe von Ibsen Dramen gelesen und dies sehr gern W hrend des ersten Aktes sp rte ich durchaus noch die gewohnte innerliche Freude ber die Weise, wie er die Charaktere vorstellt und den Leser ins Geschehen einf hrt.Derweil wuchs in mir eine bestimmte Erwartung, wie sich das weitere Geschehen gestalten k nnte Dieses Mal lag ich weit daneben, was jedoch nicht der Grund meiner Entt uschung und ungewohnt niedrigen Bewertung ist.Ausgenommen der vierzehnj hrigen Hedwig erscheinen mir die Hauptakteure zu konturenlos Ihre Motive, allen voran, die von Gregers und Hjalmar wurden in meinen Augen nicht berzeugend genug herausgearbeitet Mich st rten weniger ihre charakterlichen Schw chen, als vielmehr ihre Handlungen, die f r mich unerkl rlich blieben Verglichen mit dem alten Werle und dessen Haush lterin blieben sie blass und unglaubw rdig.So k mpfte ich mich mit M hsal durch den f nften Akt, weil ich bereits ahnte, was ein m glicher Schuss bedeuten w rde Der tragische Tod jener Person passte durchaus zum vorangegangenen Geschehen Die restliche Handlung l ste sich indes schwammig und unbefriedigend auf 1,5 Sterne . 3 5Interesting play All too familiar if you re into Khaliji soap operas The dialogue got a bit too awkward towards the end.
