Description:

The paper argues that Henrik Ibsen's "Hedda Gabler" and Lorraine Hansberry's "A Raisin in the Sun" are very different plays, hailing from markedly different times and places. The paper shows how Ibsen's play deals with an upper middle class woman living in the last decade of the 19th century, while Hansberry's play tells the story of a working class black family in the USA of the late 1950s. The paper describes how Norway in the last decade of the 19th century was a very agreeable time and place to be a white middle class man; however, being a women in Norway (or anywhere else) at that time was to live the life of a perpetual minor.
