Why did this block occur?

I thought that Oswald was a brat and a nuisance. Alving could love him, even though he was her flesh and blood. He seemed to be nothing but a spoiled child despite being in his twenties.

Alving exemplified a woman who was angry with her late husband Book Review 3 out of 5 stars to Ghostsa play written in by Henrik Ibsen. Alving exemplified a woman who was angry with her late husband for the misdeeds he committed.

She was a figurehead for the family, and thus a powerful character. Pastor Manders was definitely an exhausting character as was Engstrand.

In my mind, whichever one of them set it aflame was the evil character, and the other was the good character. After seeing the film version of the play Ghosts, I fell in love with the actress who portrayed Mrs.

She definitely improved upon the character of Mrs. Alving that I understood when I read the play. She showed me how much of a woman she was when she flirted with Pastor Manders in the very beginning. She was played much more feminine in the film version than she was in the written script, at least in my opinion.

I believe that seeing her act out the pain, show her emotions and enter into deep thought showed how human and real the character was.

Diagnostic information:

I did not feel this way while I was reading the script. I liked her character then, but that was only because she was losing someone that she loved.

I always pity the underdog, which is what I think she is even more so in the film version. She had to fight Pastor Manders, remain strong for Oswald, deal with Engstrand, and find the ability to support Regina. She was losing in every situation of her life, and by seeing her in the play, I was able to not only understand her pain even more, but root for her.

I liked her in the script version, but it was not until the video version that I could truly realize what she had to go through. The character of Engstrand was a puzzle to me. Normally, I can see a movie of the story in my mind as I read the script, but in this case, his appearance was vague and blurry.A short summary of Henrik Ibsen's Ghosts.
