About the author (1993)

Henrik Ibsen, poet and playwright was born in Skein, Norway, in 1828. His creative work spanned 50 years, from 1849-1899, and included 25 plays and numerous poems. During his middle, romantic period (1840-1875), Ibsen wrote two important dramatic poems, Brand and Peer Gynt, while the period from 1875-1899 saw the creation of 11 realistic plays with contemporary settings, the most famous of which are A Doll's House, Ghosts, Hedda Gabler, and The Wild Duck. Henrik Ibsen died in Christiania (now Oslo), Norway in 1906.

William Archer, a man of cultivation, with a just and fair mind, has said in his interesting book, Through Afro-America: "What I think about the colour question must be superficial, and may be foolish, but there is a certain evidential value in what I feel." The subconscious man in the white man rises up in revolt at a too close contact with the negro. The white race is undoubtedly superior to the black race. It is not a question of argument. It is a matter of instinct in both races.
