Hauntings from the Past20 January 2020 I found this play a little difficult to get into than some of Ibsen s other plays though I do note that it was written somewhere near the end of his life However that doesn t necessarily mean that it is any better or worse than some of his well known plays In a way it still has that rather dark and edgy feel to it and the play definitely does not end in a way that leaves you walking out of the theatre with a smile on your face In fact considering a lot of the movies that seem to come out of Hollywood I sometimes wonder how people like Ibsen survived as a playwright when their plays well don t end in the way a Hollywood movie ends Like a lot of Ibsen s plays this one deals with relationships and also dark skeletons that exist in the closets of the characters or at least two of the main characters that being Johannes Romers and his perpetual house guest Rebecca West In fact Rebecca has been a house guest since the suicide of Romers former wife see his plays are pretty bleak though I guess you do have Hollywood movies where the main characters have some nasty skeletons in their closet as well The thing with Romersholm the house is that it is old and falling down In a way it seems to reflect the nature of the monarchy at the time I notice that Romers happens to be a liberalprogressive politician that is representing the new way of looking at things yet ironically he lives in a house that represents the old Of course like a lot of plays were are dealing with members of the upper middle class but the catch is that the lives of these people are really all that great Yeah these plays really do seem to make you feel uncomfortable but also they help us understand that the lives of the upper classes aren t as wonderful as we think they are In fact they can be pretty disastrous especially when the nasty secrets come to the fore and start to shock those who desire to drift into that realm In fact I still remember speaking with people who were convinced that being rich and famous would make their lives so much better when in reality being rich and famous means that you no longer have any time to yourself and can no longer simply go out for a uiet walk no wonder Howard Hughes locked himself away and Richard Branson bought an island However this play isn t about the dangers of being rich and famous but rather the hauntings that the characters pasts just seem to keep on dragging up Yet many of us have pasts which we cannot escape from and many of us seek to do what we can to keep them hidden and buried but it seems that the longer we try to keep them buried the damage that it causes when it is finally revealed However there is also the catch that you really can t go around telling everything the truth because the reality is that nobody really wants to hear the truth Sure this whole rant probably has nothing to do with the play but still these are thoughts that went through my mind as I was reading it and following the events that were occurring in the twilight of Romersholm

This play starts out well but sadly fades into Strindbergian misogynistic nonsense The mysterious Rebecca West is the Woman as Destroyer and the hapless Rosmer a pathetic unsympathetic creature The first Act sets a political tone but also presents a mystery in the end the politics are solved and the mystery is merely patheticI find Ibsen a great original in some respects but ultimately his message is boring Coming after a couple of great Chekov plays the inferiority of this one is striking The writing is very clear but the artistry is limited There are no great moments
