Brand by Henrik Ibsen ( Book )
8 editions published between 1960 and 1973 in English and held by 515 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."--BOOK JACKET

A doll's house by Henrik Ibsen ( Book )

The slamming of the front door at the end of Ibsen's delicate and 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. This version is translated by Michael Meyer, and was first performed in 1964 at the Playhouse, Oxford
