Ibsen's work as a writer represents a long poetic contemplation of people's need to live differently than they do. Thus there is always a deep undercurrent of desperation in his work. Benedetto Croce called these portrayals of people who live in constant expectation and who are consumed by their pursuit of something else in life, a desperate drama.
In a perceptive review that both charmed and startled Ted, critic Clifton Fadiman wrote that Ted provided ingenious and uniquely witty solutions to the standing problem of the juvenile fantasy writer: how to find, not another Alice, but another rabbit hole...He may have a complete set of private despairs he fondles lovingly in the dark...he may have a dandy buried life 688 [but] it is not reflected in any of the delightful children's books he has written 688 he is not using his books for any purpose beyond entertaining himself and his readers 688

Eventually, as Ibsen grew older, he had trouble accepting certain extreme forms of liberalism which overemphasized the individual's sovereign right to self-realization and to some extent radically departed from past norms and values. In Rosmersholm , he points out the dangers of radicalism built solely on individual moral norms. It is obvious here that Ibsen is concerned with European culture's basis in a Christian inspired moral tradition. One has to build on this, he indicates, even though one has given up the Christian faith. This is certainly the conclusion that Rebekka West reaches.
The book is a history of twentieth-century thought. It begins with his reflections on Jewish idealism and Jewish suffering in Europe and ends with a devastating account of the failure of American politics in the post&ndash cold war world. It is also an intellectual autobiography of sorts. &ldquo Of sorts&rdquo because Tony rarely wrote in the first person, and the autobiographical sections of the book were wedged in, almost reluctantly, between the ideas, the history, the politics, and the ethical dilemmas that were central to his life.

Peer is the weak, spineless person - Brand's antithesis. But it is precisely in Ibsen's living portrayal of a personality's dissolution in changing roles, that some historians of the theater see the harbinger of a modernistic perception of the individual. The British drama researcher Ronald Gaskell puts it this way: Peer Gynt inaugurates the drama of the modern mind , and he continues: Indeed, if Surrealism and Expressionism in the theater can be said to have any single source, the source is undoubtedly Peer Gynt .
