Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The slamming of the front door at the end of A Doll's House shatters the romantic masquerade of the Helmers' marriage. In their stultifying and infantilised relationship, Nora and Torvald have deceived themselves and each other both consciously and subconsciously, until Nora acknowledges the need for individual freedom.

A revised student edition of classic set text: A Doll's House (1879), is a masterpiece of theatrical craft which, for the first time portrayed the tragic hypocrisy of Victorian middle class marriage on stage. The play ushered in a new social era and "exploded like a bomb into contemporary life".

The Student Edition contains these exclusive features:

·         A chronology of the playwright's life and work

·         An introduction giving the background of the play

·         Commentary on themes, characters. language and style

·         Notes on individual words and phrases in the text

·         Questions for further study

·         Bibliography for further reading.

 

Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906) was a Norwegian playwright and poet whose realistic, symbolic and often controversial plays revolutionised European theatre. He is widely regarded as the father of modern drama. His acclaimed plays include A Doll's House, Ghosts, Hedda Gabler, An Enemy of the People and The Pillars of the Community.

"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."—The New Statesman

“A powerful statement of [Ibsens] radical beliefs about gender, the folly of idealism and the nature of modern love.”—Evening Standard

The Student Edition of Ibsen's classic play, in Michael Meyer's definitive translation.
