"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

Rosmersholm by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

186 editions published between 1886 and 2014 in 21 languages and held by 998 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deep currents of thought about social and political change run through 'Rosmersholm', the last of Ibsen's political plays. Johannes Rosmer, a leading member of his community, chooses to support the new reformist government despite his own upper class origins. Unfortunately, his complicated relationship with Rebecca West, a friend of his dead wife who now lives in his house, leaves him open to attacks from those angry at what they see as his political and moral betrayal. Inspired by an upheaval in Norwegian politics, as well as the life of one of Ibsen's friends, 'Rosmersholm' was first performed at the National Theatre in Bergen, Norway, in 1887. Despite its relative obscurity, it is considered by some Ibsen scholars to be one of his masterpieces

Hedda Gabler and other plays by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

35 editions published between 1950 and 2010 in English and held by 941 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The three plays in this voluem cover the period during which Ibsen was preoccupied with realistic problems of personal and social morality. In 'The pillars of the community', partly by means of symbolism, he exposes the effects of a lie told to preeserve a man's public reputation. The solution -- to admit the truth -- scarcely seemed so simple seven years later, when Ibsen complete 'The wild duck' in apparent disillusionment. 'Hedda Gabler', the latest of these plays, is both a drama of individual conflict and a partial return to social themes." [Back cover]
The league of youth. : a doll's house. The lady from the sea by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

177 editions published between 1869 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 829 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The three plays in this volume demonstrate different sides of Henrik Ibsen's genius, but all deal with themes of alienation from society and the breaking down of convention. A Doll's House (1879) portrays a woman questioning her duty to her husband and seeking to escape the stifling confines of her marriage-a theme that shocked contemporary audiences and established Ibsen's name outside Scandinavia. In The League of Youth (1869), his first prose drama, Ibsen created a vivid comedy about a hypocritical politician, and in The Lady from the Sea (1888), he depicts a woman who longs to return to the life she enjoyed before she was married. Peter Watts's lively modern translation is accompanied by an introduction examining Ibsen's life and times, with individual discussions of each of the three plays
Little Eyolf by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

158 editions published between 1894 and 2015 in 9 languages and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guilt and grief hold equal sway over the characters in Ibsen's 'Little Eyolf', in which a couple must come to terms with the death of a child. Alfred, the child's father, is wracked with guilt for his failure to protect his son. Rita, his wife, struggles desperately to regain her husband's attention as their marriage crumbles around them. Both are haunted by past resentments even as they struggle with present tragedy. 'Little Eyolf', one of Ibsen's last plays, premiered at the Deutsches Theater in Berlin in 1895
