In 1850, Henrik Ibsen arrived in Christiania (now Oslo), hoping to begin his university education. Yet something else lay in store for the twenty-two-year-old. Failing his exams in Greek and Arithmetic, he soon moved to Bergen to become "dramatic author" at the new Norwegian theatre there. The rebellious young Ibsen was unsatisfied with the conventional "well-made plays" of his time --- calling them "daily abortions." Instead of conforming to that standard, Ibsen began forging his own plays that launched nineteenth-century drama into the modern world. Setting the playwright in context to his personal life, social, historical and political events, other writers of influence, and more, you will quickly gain a deep understanding of Ibsen and the plays he wrote. Read Ibsen in an Hour and experience his plays like never before. Know the playwright, love the play!

Henrik Ibsen ascended to the first ranks of European writers in the late nineteenth century and has remained there ever since. A pioneer of realism, he explores in his plays the existential alienation within the modern human condition. This Norton Critical Edition includes five major plays spanning Ibsen's long career: the boldly imaginative verse drama Peer Gynt (in translation published for the first time in this volume), The Wild Duck, The Master Builder, A Doll House, and Hedda Gabler. The texts are accompanied by Brian Johnston's general introduction and explanatory annotations. "Backgrounds" provides readers with an understanding of Ibsen's creative process through selections from his correspondence and other writings. Twenty-seven documents have been collected and arranged by play, with a section of autobiographical pieces at the end. Ibsen's plays continue to provoke diverse and ongoing commentary. From the wealth of work available, Brian Johnston has judiciously chosen nineteen of the most important critical responses. Contributors include, among others, W.H. Auden, Bernard Shaw, Henry James, Rolf Fjelde, Sandra Saari, E.M. Forster, Rainer Maria Rilke, Hugh Kenner, and Jennette Lee. A Chronology of Ibsen's life and work and a Selected Bibliography are also included.-Back cover
