About the project

Henrik Ibsen's Writings is to date the largest editorial project in Norway. The new edition will be a solid base for future Ibsen studies, translations and performances.


For some time, Norwegian and international Ibsen scholars have expressed the wish for a new scholarly edition of Henrik Ibsen's writings. The plans for an edition conforming to modern philological standards were strongly encouraged at the International Ibsen Conference in Grimstad, Norway in 1993. In the following years, the plans were developed at several meetings and seminars by Ibsen scholars and editorial philologists with experience from similar projects.


The project is financed by The Research Council of Norway and Arts Council Norway.
