Omtale Three Danish Comedies
Includes the plays No, Jeppe of the Hill and The Scatterbrain Johan Ludvig Heiberg (1791-1860) and Ludvig Holberg (1684-1754) were two of the very few dramatists for whom Henrik Ibsen professed admiration. Heiberg's apocalyptic comedy A Soul after Death almost certainly influenced Ibsen's own Peer Gynt, but it is for his one-act vaudevilles such as No, translated here by Michael Meyer, that Heiberg is most celebrated. Holberg can justly be described as the father of Danish and Norwegian drama, and he wrote many comedies including Jeppe of the Hill and The Scatterbrain.
