YR 1961 SN 014044016X 9780140440164 AB "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].
