A former drama professor told me that Ibsen wrote a play which dealt with infant injury and its psychological aftermath. I was wondering if anyone might know which play this is?

Thank you.

This might be very late since you asked the question 8 months ago. But i think the play that professor were talking about might be "Little Eyolf". That play is about a young boy named Little Eyolf that were injured after an accident when he were small. I dont remember if he were infant when that happend, since its a while ago i read that play, but i could check it out to tomorow. I have all of Ibsens written works.

Some say that play - "Little Eyolf" is based on true story. Something which happended to Ibsens younger brother when he were a child.
