Peer Gynt by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

640 editions published between 990 and 2015 in 28 languages and held by 4,838 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among the masterpieces of world literature, this great verse drama by Norway's famed playwright humorously yet profoundly explores the virtues, vices, and follies common to all humanity as it follows the roguish life of a charming but arrogant young man. A literary delight since it was first published in 1875
Hedda Gabler and other plays by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

664 editions published between 1881 and 2015 in 28 languages and held by 4,395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The three plays in this voluem cover the period during which Ibsen was preoccupied with realistic problems of personal and social morality. In 'The pillars of the community', partly by means of symbolism, he exposes the effects of a lie told to preeserve a man's public reputation. The solution -- to admit the truth -- scarcely seemed so simple seven years later, when Ibsen complete 'The wild duck' in apparent disillusionment. 'Hedda Gabler', the latest of these plays, is both a drama of individual conflict and a partial return to social themes." [Back cover]
A doll's house by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

399 editions published between 1879 and 2015 in 11 languages and held by 3,918 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brand by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

364 editions published between 1866 and 2014 in 21 languages and held by 2,774 WorldCat member 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."--Jacket

The league of youth. : a doll's house. The lady from the sea by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

96 editions published between 1890 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,431 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

230 editions published between 1886 and 2014 in 17 languages and held by 949 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
