This study offers a historically-based psychoanalytic approach to Henrik Ibsen's plays, fashioning a Freudian poetics that stresses the dramatist's formal technique rather than his unconcious fixations, the textual surface rather than the subtextual depths.
Introduction - toward a conjunctive psychoanalytic criticism; the 19th-century memory crisis - psychoanalysis and "The Lady from the Sea"; between repetition and redemption - "Catiline" and "Brand"; analysis terminable and interminable - "A Doll House" and "Ghosts"; constructing the primal scene - "The Wild Duck" and "Rosmersholm"; the politics of confession - "Hedda Gabler" and "The Master Builder"; conclusion - the paradox of "When We Dead Awaken".
