Peer Gynt by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

17 editions published between 1906 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 628 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.

The cross by Sigrid Undset( Book )

6 editions published between 1927 and 1955 in English and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Cross (1922) finds Kristin returning with her husband, Erlend, and their sons to her childhood home, Jorundgaard. As the boys grow older, Kristin is increasingly worried about their prospects, and she and Erlend become estranged. The most devastating and emotional volume in the trilogy, The Cross chronicles the trials and losses Kristin must bear, and how she finds the strength to endure them. This final chapter in her story emphasized the medieval belief that the spiritual world has primacy over the material one, a belief with which Undset herself concurred but found lacking in most of her own contemporaries."--Jacket

... Peer Gynt, a dramatic poem by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

36 editions published between 1892 and 2011 in English and held by 387 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
