Red Orm--canny, courageous, and above all, lucky--is only a boy when he is abducted from his Danish home by the Vikings and made to take this place at the oars of their dragon-prowed ships. Orm is then captured by the Moors in Spain, where he is initiated into the pleasures of the senses and fights for the Caliph of Cordova. Escaping from captivity, Orm washes up in Ireland, where he marvels at those epicene creatures, the Christian monks, and from which he then moves on to play an ever more important part in the intrigues of the various Scandinavian kings and clans and dependencies. Eventually, Orm contributes to the Viking defeat of the army of the king of England and returns home an off-the-cuff Christian and a very rich man, though back on his native turf new trials and tribulations will test his cunning and determination

A doll's house by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

24 editions published between 1965 and 2013 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The slamming of the front door at the end of Ibsen's electrifying play shatters the romantic masquerade of Nora and Torvald's marriage. In their stultifying and infantilised relationship, they have deceived themselves and each other into thinking they are happy. But Nora's concealment of a loan she had to take out for her husband's sake forces their frivolous conversation to an irrevocable crisis, until Nora claims her right to individual freedom. Ibsen's 1879 play shocked its first audiences with its radical insights into the social roles of husband and wife. His portrayal of his flawed heroine, Nora, remains one of the most striking dramatic depictions of late-nineteenth century woman. This version is translated by Michael Meyer, and was first performed in 1964 at the Playhouse, Oxford

The wild duck by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

13 editions published between 1962 and 2015 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gregers Werle, the son of a wealthy businessman, is an uncompromising idealist, and invites himself into the house of Hjalmar Ekdal, his childhood friend. His intention is to free the Ekdal family from the mesh of lies on which their contented lives are based; Gregers can see delusion, fantasy, and deep-seated deception surrounding Hjalmar, his father, his wife Gina, and his daughter Hedvig. But Gregers drowns the family even as he is trying to raise them up, his well-meaning investigations shredding the lies they have told themselves in order to live. The Wild Duck's title is taken from the wounded bird which is nursed and kept in the attic by Hedvig, an acute and crucial symbol of resistance to reality at the centre of this rich and piercing play
