Description

Full Length Play

Johannes Rosmer, the owner of Rosmersholm, is the last of a long and influencial line of clergy, officers and senior civil servants. Formerly a vicar, he has resigned from office.

It becomes plain that she and Rosmer are in love, but he insists throughout the play that their relationship is completely platonic.
