Ibsen's Selected Plays



The Norton Critical Edition includes five major plays spanning Ibsen's long career in recent translations by Brian Johnston ( Peer Gynt , The Wild Duck , and The Master Builder ) and Brian Johnston and Rick Davis ( A Doll House and Hedda Gabler ). The translation of Peer Gynt appears for the first time in this Norton Critical Edition.

"Backgrounds" gives students an understanding of Ibsen's creative process with selections from his correspondence and other writings. Twenty-seven documents have been collected and arranged by play, with a section of autobiographical writings at the end.

Ibsen's plays continue to provoke diverse commentary. "Criticism" includes nineteen of the most important responses to Ibsen's work, among them essays by Bernard Shaw, Sandra Saari, E. M. Forster, Hugh Kenner, and Joan Templeton.

A Chronology and Selected Bibliography are also included.
