Henrik Ibsen

(1828 - 1906)

At the age of fifteen, Henrik Ibsen left his childhood home in Norway, journeying seventy miles down the coast to a hamlet where he worked as an apothecary’s apprentice. During that time he wrote his first play, Catiline, which sold few copies and was rejected by every theater he submitted it to.
