Four of Ibsen's most important plays in superb modern translations, part of the new Penguin Ibsen series

With her assertion that she is “first and foremost a human being,” Nora Helmer sent shockwaves throughout Europe when she appeared in Henrik Ibsen's greatest and most famous play,A Doll's House. Depicting one woman's struggle to be treated as a rational human being, and not merely a wife, mother, or fragile doll, the play sparked debates worldwide about the roles of men and women in society. Ibsen's follow-up,Ghosts, was no less radical, with its unrelenting investigation into religious hypocrisy, family secrets, and sexual double-dealing. These two masterpieces are accompanied here byThe Pillars of Society and An Enemy of the People, both exploring the tensions and dark compromises at the heart of society.
