WikiProject Theatre Assessment[edit]

  • Start class - Formatting changes needed to conform with Wikipedia:WikiProject_Theatre/Article_Structure guidelines, and could use some Reception information. Once there, this will be at least B class.
  • Low importance - a single play constitutes a "highly specific area of knowledge"

--Dereksmootz (talk) 20:15, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

I've re-assessed the article as High importance - it's the second-most-viewed article of those on Ibsen's plays (after A Doll's House) and gets 18,500 hits per month. DionysosProteus (talk) 22:44, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

I think it should be part of a few other wikiprojects. How about WikiProject Norway for example? -Alan (talk) 16:31, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

Notable productions[edit]

I restored an edited version of the entry on the Guthrie's production of Robert Bly's new translation. It seems that a translation by a major poet (among other accolades, he has received the National Book Award) deserves to be mentioned. (talk) 06:19, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Section on English translations or a list of English translations[edit]

It would be great if someone could add a section on this, and possibly summarize scholarly reviews of the translations. (talk) 06:22, 29 April 2009 (UTC)


German, English, and French translations are mentioned. The language names are made into links that point to, for Pete's sake, the Wikipedia articles about those languages. Who actually thought those links could conceivably be useful to anyone reading this article? "Hmmm... English... I'll click on that... Oh! It's a language! I wonder if that could be what I was reading this article in?" I've removed those links. (talk) 14:00, 9 March 2010 (UTC) Jack

Modern Social Media[edit]

It should also be mentioned that the final track on the most recent album by German a capella metal group van Canto seems to be inspired by Peer Gynt. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:01, 10 May 2012 (UTC)

mc chris sings a song titled Peer Gynt. It should be noted, since there is no other current connection. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Stephlet (talkcontribs) 04:26, 26 November 2010 (UTC)

original language[edit]

Hi, what's the original language of Peer Gynt!? Danish or Riksmål? -- (talk) 13:18, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

"Peer Gynt" in bokmaal ...?[edit]

Sorry, but the _precursor_ of bokmaal, riksmaal, was codified in 1907, pretty much 40 years after publication of PG. PG is written in (more or less pure) danish wrt. grammar and spelling, with perhaps (I don't know) a somewhat more norwegian vocabulary. If anything, call it dano-norwegian (re: wiki articles on this). Modern publications of course use normalized bokmaal, but that's not the maal-form it was originally written in.

" Written in the then prevailing dano-norwegian *language/dialect/X* (although newer/contemporary editions use a/the more modern form of Bokmål Norwegian /// although usually published in normalized bokmaal// ), it remains ..." ?

The wording was changed from Dano-Norwegian to Bokmål by an IP address[1] who obviously has no knowledge at all of the Norwegian language and language history, with a nonsensical claim that Dano-Norwegian is a "politically charged and non-standard way to refer to Bokmål". Dano-Norwegian is, of course, a totally neutral term used to refer to the written language used in both Denmark and Norway in Ibsen's lifetime (and during the Dano-Norwegian union before his lifetime as well). The language could also be called simply Danish (the play was even published by a Danish publisher), but since Norwegians in Ibsen's lifetime usually referred to it as Norwegian, despite it being identical to Danish as a written language, Dano-Norwegian is a better term which better conveys the fact that it was the shared written language of two countries, and known as both Danish and Norwegian.
It might be "politically charged" to use the term Dano-Norwegian to refer to the current Bokmål (invented decades after Ibsen's death), but that has absolutely nothing to do with using the term in a neutral manner to refer to the identical (Danish) written language as used in Denmark and Norway in Ibsen's lifetime. --Johamas (talk) 09:47, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
