What would have happened if the Nora in Casa de muñecas hadn’t broken free of her chains and had instead remained with her husband? This reflection seems to have led Ibsen to write his next play: Espectros. When it premiered in 1882, it caused a huge scandal.
Ghosts was described as "an open sewer"; never before had the principles and foundations of the patriarchal structure been so openly dissected and attacked: the family, with the man at its head, must be preserved at all costs; one’s reputation must be protected by blood and fire. The lie (the omertà) - and the darkness it casts - serves to perpetuate the oppression of women and the sexual violence (exercised inside and outside the home) that are sustained with the forced complicity of the victims themselves... As Simone de Beauvoir said: “The oppressor would not be so strong if he did not have accomplices among the oppressed...” But this work, in which light and darkness are the two antagonistic forces in combat, announces to us with its powerful and metaphorical voice that, as the saying goes - “You can’t block the sun out with one finger”- dawn will come, whether we want it to or not, to reveal the ashes of what we leave to future generations for that which must burn.
