Controversy and hidden pasts are suddenly and painfully exposed as wealthy widow Mrs Alving prepares to open a new orphanage in memory of her husband. Her treasured son Oswald's return from Paris and her relationship with old friend Pastor Manders are no longer the source of joy they once were, as secrets are turned into a frightening and desperate reality.

First published in 1881 and performed the following year, Ibsen paints a bleak picture of the sacred institution of marriage and the family, and with its open discussion of the taboo subjects of free love, incest, and venereal disease, it is hardly surprising that this masterpiece caused such a hostile reaction with audiences and critics alike.

    " I only read "A Doll's House." It isn't something I would choose to read myself, but it was still enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrew | 2/24/2011

    " I only read "A Doll's House" out of these. An enjoyable read, at the least. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steven | 8/15/2010

    " This volume contains four of Ibsen's works. They indicate the nature of his talent and also suggest why his work sometimes was not accepted well. These plays represent the middle of his career. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carah | 6/10/2010

    " Review of A Doll's House: The first two acts of this are so Victorian that it's absurd. Ending kicked ass though. Nora and Ayn Rand would have been cold lesbian lovers. "

    " Night of Insomnia= A Doll's House. Not a bad trade "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rosemary | 8/10/2009

    " Dark and funny and sad. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teresa | 11/30/2008

    " I read these plays in high school and still have the book. I'm actually only rereading "The Wild Duck" right now, as LSC's "The Model" has referred to it and I have no memory of the play any longer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ethan | 11/9/2008

    " I really didnt like the story of the book.
    Mr.Garfinkle was right its idea is in a lot of other books and happens in real life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 5/9/2008

    " I really liked these plays, even though Ibsen is much more cynical than I am. I like the complexity of his characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 4/6/2008

    " I love Ibsen. He is a thoughtful and thought provoking social commentarian. 'Enemy of the People' is particularly poignant and disturbing regarding the ignorance of the masses. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Betsy | 3/13/2008

    " I love this book because I saw a rendition of one of the plays therein with a very young Anthony Hopkins as the antagonist. Amazing. "
