The translators have paid particular attention to three aspects of Ibsens technique: his wit and humor, his supertext - the web of rich allusions and references that he weaves in and around his dialogue - and the bold theatricallity of the plays. The result is an Ibsen that sounds contemporary without being slangy or colloquial - an Ibsen of strong ideas but also living characters - and surprisingly different from the image of the cold, forbidding scold of the North that we often associate with this giant writer.
