Jacob Zipperstein 4/20/10 Thesis: Henrik Ibsen brilliantly analyzes the theme of conflicts between generations. Throughout the play, the audience is introduced to characters from the late 19 th century and how they dealt with family situations. The motif of hostility between generations becomes increasingly evident through his protagonist Mrs. Alving. Ghosts: - Engstrad openly submits to be a drunk, however he still feels that he hasn’t mistreated Regina - Regina, however, will not even consider the idea of living with him - The pastor greatly believes that a child should respect and honor their parents - However, the pastor is blinded to the fact that Ensgrad is willing to prostitute out his daughter. Regina: - Two sides to Regina when it comes to dealing with her elders (the generation above hers) - She is extremely disrespectful to her father (with every right to do so), but has full respect for the Pastor - Regina considers herself to be of a higher stature then her father o She says that she does not want to be seen with him
