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 doll's house by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

Brand by Henrik Ibsen( Book )
280 editions published between 1870 and 2016 in 17 languages and held by 3,111 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

When his brother, the mayor, conspires with local politicians and the newspaper to suppress the story, Stockmann appeals to the public meeting only to be shouted down and reviled as an enemy of the people. Ibsen's explosive play reveals his distrust of politicians and the blindly held prejudices of the solid majority

John Gabriel Borkman by Henrik Ibsen( Book )
156 editions published between 1896 and 2016 in 16 languages and held by 1,054 libraries worldwide
A scorching indictment of nineteenth century capitalism, Ibsen's penultimate play paints a devastating picture of selfish ambition. John Gabriel Borkman paces alone in an upstairs room. Downstairs, his wife Gunhild waits for their son to vindicate the family name. They have lived on separate floors for eight years, following Borkman's imprisonment for fraud on an enormous scale. Gunhild's twin sister Ella, who was also in love with Borkman, arrives - she is dying, and comes to lay her claim to Erhart, the nephew whom she brought up during Borkman's incarceration
Hedda Gabler and other plays by Henrik Ibsen( Book )
36 editions published between 1950 and 2010 in English and held by 940 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]
Rosmersholm by Henrik Ibsen( Book )
150 editions published between 1886 and 2016 in 16 languages and held by 850 libraries worldwide
Deep currents of thought about social and political change run through 'Rosmersholm', the last of Ibsen's political plays. Johannes Rosmer, a leading member of his community, chooses to support the new reformist government despite his own upper class origins. Unfortunately, his complicated relationship with Rebecca West, a friend of his dead wife who now lives in his house, leaves him open to attacks from those angry at what they see as his political and moral betrayal. Inspired by an upheaval in Norwegian politics, as well as the life of one of Ibsen's friends, 'Rosmersholm' was first performed at the National Theatre in Bergen, Norway, in 1887. Despite its relative obscurity, it is considered by some Ibsen scholars to be one of his masterpieces

The league of youth. : a doll's house. The lady from the sea by Henrik Ibsen( Book )
128 editions published between 1869 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 616 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
