17 editions published between 1960 and 2003 in English and Hebrew and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brand was Ibsen's first masterpiece, a poetic drama composed in 1865 and published to tremendous critical and popular acclaim. The unsparing vision of a priest driven by faith to risk and witness the deaths of his wife and child gives Brand its icy ferocity. When he was writing it in Italy, Ibsen declared: 'It is blessedly peaceful out here; no one I know; I read nothing but the Bible ... ' Geoffrey Hill provides a new Preface to this third and revised edition of his great stage version of Brand."--Jacket

The wild duck : a new translation, the writing of the play, criticism by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

12 editions published between 1962 and 2013 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The Wild Duck' is an unsettling play of profound, keen psychology and absolute truth. Gregers Werle 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. 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' was published in 1884 and premiered in 1885 at Bergen in Norway. This version, translated by Michael Meyer, was first performed in 1963 at the Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham

Peer Gynt by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

6 editions published between 1962 and 2015 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Per Gynt, the model for Ibsen's great dramatic poem, was a folk hero from Norwegian fairy tales. Believing the story to be based on fact, Ibsen composed his work in the 1870s, eschewing dramatic convention and sending his protagonist on a fantastical, at times cinematic, journey across the Scandinavian countryside, vigorously traversing the borders of imagination and traditional stagecraft to produce one of his greatest works. Written to be read, 'Peer Gynt' was not staged until 1876, nine years after it was first published in Scandinavia (and only then after many cuts and rewrites)
