"James McFarlane's introduction is exemplary and his translation masterful. A pleasure to read!"--Brice Thompson, University of California, Santa Cruz
"By far the best translation of Ibsen available. Every detail in an Ibsen play is important; every detail and most manners of the Norwegian are accuretly recaptured in these masterly translations."--Simon Williams, University of California, Santa Barbara
"A fine, lively translation of these classics. Also, it is great to have these particular four Ibsen plays in one volume."--Harold J. Baxter, Ph.D., Trinity College
