By Henrik Ibsen

Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen wrote An Enemy of the folk in 1882 as a reaction to the general public outrage over his play Ghosts. half comedy, half severe drama, the play appears at Dr. Thomas Stockmann's fight to uphold the reality within the face of intolerance and willful lack of know-how, as his whole neighborhood turns opposed to him. Branded an "Enemy of the People," Dr. Stockmann can basically take solace within the concept that "the most powerful guy on the earth is the guy who stands so much alone."

When Mary asked how he met his wife, Robert said it was impossible to explain that without first describing his sisters and his mother, and these in turn could be explained only in terms of his father. It was clear he was preparing the way to telling them his story. ‘Ha ha ha’ was winding up to another crescendo, and at a table near the juke-box a man with curly hair sank his face in his hands.
