Brand by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

"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."--Jacket

The play is based on an incident that Ibsen recorded from an earlier period in his life, the attempted suicide of an army officer who had been accused of embezzlement. The Borkman family fortunes have been brought low by the imprisonment of John Gabriel who used his position as a bank manager to illegally speculate with his investors' money. The action of the play takes place eight years after Borkman's release when John Gabriel Borkman, Mrs. Borkman, and her twin sister Ella Rentheim battle over the future of young Erhart Borkman. Though John Gabriel Borkman continues the line of naturalism a
The league of youth. : a doll's house. The lady from the sea by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

32 editions published between 1965 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,145 WorldCat member 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

Ibsen's explosive play reveals his distrust of politicians and the blindly held prejudices of the solid majority

Rosmersholm by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

171 editions published between 1886 and 2013 in 13 languages and held by 1,066 WorldCat member 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
The wild duck by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

75 editions published between 1890 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,040 WorldCat member 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 pillars of society by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

77 editions published between 1886 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 829 WorldCat member 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
