"Ibsen's plays do not depend for their interest on the action, or on the incidents. Even the characters, faultlessly drawn though they be, are not the first thing in this plays. But the `naked drama' - either the perception of a great truth, or the opening up of a great question, or of a great conflict which is almost independent of the conflicting actors, and has been and is of -far reaching importance - this is what primarily rivets our attention."

Flaubert as Emma in Madame Bovary - Flaubert as Emma in Madame Bovary          During the Nineteenth Century, Europe experienced a literary movement known as Romanticism.
