For Ibsen, there is no angel and no ram. When Brand is confronted by a similar dilemma to Abraham, his 'teleological suspension of the ethical' leads directly to the death of his own son. In Ibsen's world picture, there is no divine essence to safeguard man in his hour of need; man has to define himself and his values by his deeds. 'Brand' Brand is more an exploration of a theme than a detailed study of characters or relationships. It has an abstract, highly patterned feel to it. The rhyming verse is tightly controlled, with at times an epigrammatic quality that imprints certain key notions and concepts indelibly on one's consciousness.
Emperor and Galilean' The one occasion on which he did attempt to provide an answer in his work was in Emperor and Galilean. He himself drew attention to the fact in a letter to his publisher in July 1871: 'This work will be my masterpiece, it is occupying all my thoughts and all my time. The positive "Weltanschauung" that the critics have long demanded of me will be found there'. Emperor and Galilean was a play that had occupied his mind for almost a decade. Stylistically, it marked the turning point in his work between 51 Henrik Ibsen romanticism and realism.
He began his campaign in 1825 with a successful production of his vaudeville called King Solomon and George the Hatter (Kong Salomon og Jf/Jrgen Hattemager). He followed up this success with further vaudevilles and with translations of modern French plays, including sixteen written by Scribe. He also wrote a spirited vindication of his approach in an essay entitled On the Vaudeville as a dramatic form (1826). The effect of Heiberg's three-fold strategy was to banish from the repertoire of The Theatre Royal the romantic melodramas of JffJand and Kotzebue and open the way for the plays of Scribe and, more importantly, for a specifically Danish form of Biedermeier romantic drama, offering its audiences a combination of charm, wit, irony and song.
