Little Eyolf

Home / Little Eyolf

Little Eyolf is the most subtle and elusive of all Ibsen’s plays. Henry James’ criticism of the ‘happy ending’ is not substantiated in performance. In this act Ibsen achieved what he intended, to reveal the interior of the human soul in which we all love has died – so that in rita’s words, all that is left to her and Allmers is to try and fill that emptiness with something. Something resembling love.
