The long ships : a saga of the Viking age by Frans Gunnar Bengtsson( Book )

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

The wild duck by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

13 editions published between 1962 and 2015 in English and held by 379 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

Peer Gynt by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

11 editions published between 1962 and 2015 in English and held by 364 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)
