Ibsen Plays 2 - A Doll's House & An Enemy of the People & Hedda Gabler

Ibsen Plays 2 - A Doll's House & An Enemy of the People & Hedda Gabler $27.99

Henrick Ibsen trans Michael Meyer

Published by Methuen

This volume contains Ibsen's two most famous and frequently read, studied and performed plays about women ...

A Doll's House (1879), his first international success, which 'exploded like a bomb into contemporary life'

And Hedda Gabler (1890), now one of his most popular plays, but greeted at first with bewilderment and outrage

'The play is simply a bad escape of moral sewage-gas' ~ Pictorial World

Also included is An Enemy of the People (1883), whose central character was the actor Konstantin Stanislavski's favourite role

Michael Meyer's translations are 'crisp and cobweb-free, purged of verbal Victoriana' ~ Kenneth Tynan

"Meyer's translations of Ibsen are a major fact in one's general sense of post-war drama. Their vital pace, their unforced insistence on the poetic centre of Ibsen's genius, have beaten academic versions from the field" ~ George Steiner
