As a young man, Ibsen bought Peer Gynt from a starving poet and set himself up as a pretender to being a playwright. Then in Germany, he
was killed in a bar fight, and a group of young German writers wrote his plays for a while as a joke, eventually hiring an out-of-work
actor to impersonate him.
My book will decode all of the jokes the
playwrights wrote into the plays in code, though anyone can tell Peer Gynt was written by a different author than the one who wrote Hedda
Further stylistic analysis, date comparisons and research will be provided. See the upcoming TV special.
We have established that more than one writer wrote Ibsen's plays, and will reveal our data more completely in the book. However, as can be
seen clearly from the style of language Ibsen used, one of the writers (called "Ibsen 4" in the study) clearly speaks danish fluently.
And, we believe there is a case that Ibsen 4 was the dramaturge for the group, engineering the plots and mechanics of the plays.
To reveal one
exciting finding of the study, it is clear that the cabal of playwrights who actually wrote so-called Ibsen's works were women. Certainly, any reasonable person will not find it odd that a woman in that oppressed day and age would both write "Hedda Gabler" and be unable to publish it because of the repression of her gender.
