First performed at the Royal Theatre in Copenhagen, Denmark, on December 21, 1879, “A Doll’s House” is one of Henrik Ibsen’s most famous plays. It is the story of Nora Helmer who has secretly borrowed a large sum of money to help her husband recover from a serious illness, sometime prior to the beginning of the play. Nora who has borrowed this money by forging her father’s signature soon fears that her secret will be discovered when her husband, Torvald, becomes director of the bank and fires an associate, Nils Krogstad, who knows of Nora’s transgression. When Krogstad threatens to reveal Nora’s secret, she begs her husband not to reinstate him, however, he refuses. The tension that arises in Nora and Torvald’s marriage ultimately comes to a head when Torvald finally learns of the forgery. A gripping drama about a failing, loveless marriage, “A Doll’s House” was very controversial when it debuted, because of its critical attitude toward 19th-century marriage norms. Ibsen himself believed that the male dominated society of the 19th-century society failed to allow women to truly be themselves, and thus advocated, through his work, for an advancement of women’s rights. This edition includes an introduction by William Archer

Arthur Miller's adaptation of An enemy of the people by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

25 editions published between 1882 and 2013 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An Enemy of the People addresses the irrational tendencies of the masses, and the hypocritical and corrupt nature of the political system that they support. It is the story of one man's brave struggle to do the right thing and speak the truth in the face of extreme social intolerance. Dr. Stockman is pilloried by townsmen who are unable to accept his discovery that the town's water supply is toxic. He attempts to expose a water pollution scandal in his home town which is about to establish itself as a spa. When his brother, the mayor, conspires with local politicians and the newspaper to suppress the story, Stockmann appeals to the public meeting only to be shouted down and reviled as an enemy of the people. Ibsen's explosive play reveals his distrust of politicians and the blindly held prejudices of the solid majority
