Just like with the business scene where Norway is taking advantage of the assets that UK has and the strong relationship between both nations, Norwegian literature is also getting a slice of the pie. First and utmost, Norwegian literary genius is finally getting the worldwide attention it deserves, and therefore the translation it needs.
Henrik Ibsen, one of Norway’s most acclaimed playwrights, continues having his work performed worldwide. Although his controversial plays - which put women’s role into focus - are already translated, English publishers are hard at work giving them a second go. With these new translations, his work will be brought back to the world’s stages without a doubt.
