Hello, Fredrik , who wrote in the VG that you don't see the point of learning about the history of literature as a part of the study of Norwegian, and which pulls forward it to interpret the Henrik Ibsen's "Et dukkehjem" as the top of the meaninglessness. It is really nice to get the opportunity to explain why it is important that the school provides you with this task. Here are four reasons:
first: You are a part of larger contexts than you think, geographically and historically. The references you have, the thoughts you think, your automatic reactions to your community around you, is related to the historical processes that have created the modern Norway. You have lived in this country in eighteen years, but through what you read, perhaps especially the older literature, you can get stretched you, gain insight into feelings and experiences that are outside your own immediate horizons.
to take the "Et dukkehjem" specifically: When the sharp voices claim that gender equality is something typically Norwegian, and makes us into something essentially different from the other, it is good to know that it is not so long ago the Norwegian women could not take out a loan on your own.
second: Henrik Ibsen is one of the most internationally renowned norwegians in the story. Plays too, his set up all over the world and inspires some of the world's foremost filmmakers and authors. You may come to be in contact with people from other countries, which among other things connects Norway with Ibsen's plays. Then it may be you will think it is a bit embarrassing not to, because of what they are talking about.
third: To know to Ibsen's work makes you more linguistically competent, because there are more fixed phrases and well-worn quotations that come from there. If you hear someone talk about a "lerkefugl", you don't know what they mean if you don't know the play, the phrase comes from.Harvested Ibsen: "I can not fathom, why our fremtidstanker absolut to be served in a Sauce of Syphilis and subtitles should be"
fourth: Utility is not something permanent. Over the last hundred years there has been a number of occupations that have seemed like safe options, but that has been outdated by the trends, technology and social development. The view of the authors that are the most significant, is also changing, but Ibsen's plays have been read, performed and discussed while professions and skills have come and gone. When you interpret "Et dukkehjem", you will be a part of a discussion that has lasted for 140 years.
fifth: If you once to end up in a relationship where you suddenly realize that you know the other far worse than you thought, that it suddenly is a gorge between the you that you were not aware, because it was the themes you had never visited, together, so, you may want to know an echo of something you read once, then you may not quite had the ability to take in that it happens in "Et dukkehjem" is about life.
much of what you learn in school that you are not going to apply directly. It is not surely that you learn about tredjegradsligninger or the periodic system is going to be a part of your everyday life. However, you should know something about what others are doing, about what others have thought and felt, about the processes that shape the country and the world you are born into. You are not only the features and functions you should fill in the community, a accumulation of a knowledge of arithmetic, spelling, first aid and the ability to fill out your tax return. You are much more than that.- I had something in my body that did that I lost impulskontrollen Dagbladet Plus
