Peer Gynt by Henrik Ibsen ( Book )
45 editions published between 1892 and 2011 in English and held by 1,046 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This five act play was based on the Norwegian fairy tale, "Per Gynt", and broke down the structural barriers of Norwegian theatre, as Ibsen wrote the entire play in verse-form. "Peer Gynt" drifts between the conscious and unconscious, blending realism and folkloric fantasy. Ibsen used this play to satirize transcendentalist ideas, new and revolutionary at the time, that encouraged a return to nature and simplicity

Brand by Henrik Ibsen ( Book )
3 editions published in 1911 in English and held by 22 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."--BOOK JACKET
