An enemy of the people by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

543 editions published between 1882 and 2021 in 23 languages and held by 3,377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An 1882 play by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen. Ibsen wrote it in response to the public outcry against his previous play, Ghosts, which challenged the hypocrisy of 19th-century morality. According to Ellen Mortensen (Ibsen Studies v.7, 169), the words "scandalous, degenerate," and "immoral" were hurled at both Ghosts and its author because it openly discussed adultery and syphilis. Therefore, An Enemy of the People tells the story of a man who dares to speak an unpalatable truth, and is punished for it. However, Ibsen took a somewhat skeptical view of his protagonist, suggesting that he may have gone too far in his zeal to tell the truth. Ibsen wrote to his publisher: "I am still uncertain as to whether I should call [An Enemy of the People] a comedy or a straight drama. It may [have] many traits of comedy, but it also is based on a serious idea."
Brand by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

328 editions published between 1866 and 2019 in 16 languages and held by 3,319 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

But the tide is turning, an English ship is coming down the fjord, and the undercurrents threaten to drag a whole family beneath the surface in this passionate and sweeping drama. Ellida must choose between the solid and reliable values of the land and the fluid, mysterious and frightening attraction of the sea

239 editions published between 1800 and 2021 in 18 languages and held by 2,010 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Johannes Rosmer has resigned as parish priest following the suicide of his wife. But his increasingly liberal ideas make him an object of suspicion to the local worthies, who also disapprove of the presence in his house of a much younger woman, Rebecca West, formerly his wife's companion. As their relationship deepens and their isolation builds, the increasing moral pressures they face force them inexorably towards their fate." "Rosmersholm presents a portrait of idealism and democracy floundering in a society of conservatism and opportunism." "Mike Poulton's new version of Ibsen's Rosmersholm premiered at the Almeida Theatre, London, with Helen McCrory and Paul Hilton, directed by Anthony Page."--BOOK JACKET

The pillars of society by Henrik Ibsen( )

211 editions published between 1872 and 2021 in 9 languages and held by 1,701 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Pillars of Society (original Norwegian title: Samfundets stoslash;tter) is an 1877 play written by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen. Ibsen had great trouble with the writing of this play which came before the series of masterpieces which made him famous throughout the world. The ending is the most criticised feature, since Bernick is clearly guilty of attempted murder but gets off unscathed, but successfully illustrates that the rich and powerful are often selfish and corrupt. - Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The character of Hedda is considered by some critics as one of
