Environment and Heredity in Ibsen’s Ghosts


Kalyan Das

This paper explores the Naturalistic nature of Ibsen’s Ghosts. Naturalism views human life in relation to internal and external environment (Zola, 1968). It insists on the effect of the past that shapes the present life. Ghosts is a typical naturalistic play that deals with the life of individuals in relation their environment. (Shaw, 1891). The nineteenth century theorist Emile Zola first developed and applied this movement in his novels. Henrik Ibsen brought this tradition to his social plays. Life is depicted objectively in order to capture the real world. Ibsen abandons verse for prose to expose human reality in scientific manner. Issues like heredity, incest, venereal diseases, frustration, unhappy social relationship and marital problems, all spring out from the overwhelming influence of Environment and Heredity.
