In The Master Builder, Henrik Ibsen uses Halvard Solness, his ambition and insecurities, to reveal how man can contribute to his own failings, even if he is seemingly successful. By insisting that “I am what I am, and I cannot change my nature”, Solness attempts to manipulate everyone around him to ensure that he remains “the master”, not only in the course of his business, but also in his personal relationships. He fears a young generation that will challenge his position as “Master Builder”. That representative of the younger generation appears in a form that he least expects.
