  Abstract:  Hamsun’s Critic of Ibsen – A Reception of Rosmersholm’s Reception. This article aims at demonstrating Hamsun’s use of the reception of Ibsen’s play Rosmersholm in his own program for a new psychological literature. The negative critique of Ibsen for presenting “abnormal”, “incomprehensible” and “insane” persons on stage as a kind of elitist project is in 1890-91 turned to a positive project in Hamsun’s new poetics. Hamsun – however – masks his dependence upon Ibsen by reading Rosmer in Ibsen’s play as a naturalistic cliché.

Keywords: Hamsun, Ibsen, psychological literature, reception.
