Dr. Stockman is pilloried by townsmen who are unable to accept his discovery that the town's water supply is toxic. Best Books for Senior High Readers. This is a modern translation by Arthur Miller of the story of a doctor who cannot conform. Dr. Stockmann attempts to expose a water pollution scandal in his home town which is about to establish itself as a spa. When his brother, the mayor, conspires with local politicians and the newspaper to suppress the story, Stockmann appeals to the public meeting only to be shouted down and reviled as an enemy of the people. Ibsen's explosive play reveals his distrust of politicians and the blindly held prejudices of the solid majority.

For years, Mrs. Alving has, for appearance's sake, endured a loveless marriage to a dissolute and drunken man.

But despite (or, ironically, perhaps because of) her efforts, the ghosts of the past and resurrected as her son reappears, the obvious heir to his father's sins and excesses.
The wild duck by Henrik Ibsen ( Book )
307 editions published between 1882 and 2011 in 23 languages and held by 1,675 libraries worldwide
In this 1884 masterpiece by "the father of modern drama", the idealistic son of a corrupt merchant exposes his father's duplicity, but in the process destroys the very people he wishes to save. Led by his conviction that reality is superior to illusion, Gregers Werle forces his friends, the Ekdals, to confront the truth about their lives. Unfortunately, these truths, involving scandal, illegitimacy, imprisonment and madness, only serve to wound the Ekdals further. In the play, the wild duck is a symbol of this injured family, and perhaps, of the loss of Ibsen's youthful idealism. Moving and powerful, this thought-provoking tragedy offers ample testimony to the justice of Ibsen's status as one of the giants of modern theater.
The master builder by Henrik Ibsen ( Book )
247 editions published between 1892 and 2010 in 20 languages and held by 1,646 libraries worldwide
One of the great Norwegian playwright's most mysterious, symbolic, and lyrical dramas, The Master Builder concerns one Halvard Solness, an architect who in his youth had been ruthlessly ambitious, but now, in his later years, not only feels threatened by younger architects, but also fears the decay of his own creativity. In the course of the play, Solness becomes involved with a woman named Hilda Wangel, who is his muse and inspiration. Ironically, it is Hilda's fanatical belief in his greatness that precipitates the play's tragic end. Among the most original of Ibsen's works and one of the most frequently performed, The Master Builder is widely read by students of drama and literature as well as by general readers.

196 editions published between 1868 and 2007 in 18 languages and held by 1,505 libraries worldwide
"Brand was Ibsen's first masterpiece, a poetic drama composed in 1865 and published to tremendous critical and popular acclaim. The unsparing vision of a priest driven by faith to risk and witness the deaths of his wife and child gives Brand its icy ferocity. When he was writing it in Italy, Ibsen declared: 'It is blessedly peaceful out here; no one I know; I read nothing but the Bible ...' Geoffrey Hill provides a new Preface to this third and revised edition of his great stage version of Brand."--BOOK JACKET.

The league of youth. : a doll's house. The lady from the sea by Henrik Ibsen ( Book )
135 editions published between 1869 and 2010 in 8 languages and held by 1,189 libraries worldwide
The three plays in this volume demonstrate different sides of Henrik Ibsen's genius, but all deal with themes of alienation from society and the breaking down of convention. A Doll's House (1879) portrays a woman questioning her duty to her husband and seeking to escape the stifling confines of her marriage-a theme that shocked contemporary audiences and established Ibsen's name outside Scandinavia. In The League of Youth (1869), his first prose drama, Ibsen created a vivid comedy about a hypocritical politician, and in The Lady from the Sea (1888), he depicts a woman who longs to return to the life she enjoyed before she was married. Peter Watts's lively modern translation is accompanied by an introduction examining Ibsen's life and times, with individual discussions of each of the three plays.

The pillars of society by Henrik Ibsen ( Book )
259 editions published between 1872 and 2010 in 19 languages and held by 809 libraries worldwide
The Pillars of Society (original Norwegian title: Samfundets støtter) is an 1877 play written by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen. Ibsen had great trouble with the writing of this play which came before the series of masterpieces which made him famous throughout the world. The ending is the most criticised feature, since Bernick is clearly guilty of attempted murder but gets off unscathed, but successfully illustrates that the rich and powerful are often selfish and corrupt.-- Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Rosmersholm by Henrik Ibsen ( Book )
227 editions published between 1881 and 2010 in 24 languages and held by 744 libraries worldwide
Rosmersholm is a play written in 1886 by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen. In the estimation of many critics the piece is Ibsen's masterwork, only equalled by The Wild Duck of 1884. As expressed by the protagonist, Rosmer, the theme of the play is social and political change, in which the traditional ruling classes relinquish their right to impose their ideals on the rest of society, but the action is entirely personal, resting on the conduct of the immoral, or amoral, "free thinking" heroine, Rebecca, who sets herself to undermine Rosmer's religious and political beliefs because of.
