Abstract:Américo Castro, in Iberoamérica, states, "... it is essential to the drama that man feel himself to be in conflict with the ideas and beliefs of his time and that he possess enough energy to express in art the struggle between the individual and the world in which he must live”1. Federico García Lorca and Henrik Ibsen are two men whose biographies substantiate this generalization. Born more than two generations apart, they both faced sociological and political conflicts of comparable intensities. Lorca understood very well the events that led to the Spanish Civil War although he could do nothing to affect the upheavals. Ibsen was caught in a social and cultural movement that stressed the importance of reforms, freedom, and individualism. Both writers were sensitive to the human struggles around them and channeled their feelings about these conflicts into their work.
