I agree that a lot of the cultural allusions were lost on me even with notes. However I still really enjoyed the character of Peer Gynt and the language (Adelaide translation). I also liked the fact that it shifted so much in terms of time and place. I am very fond of lying, untrustworthy protagonists for some reason so for me Peer Gynt was a good read. I know that I missed a lot in the text but I feel like I still benefited from reading it.
