Description
Information
The three plays in this volume, each written a decade apart, 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.

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' lively modern translation is accompanied by an introduction examining Ibsen's life and times, with individual discussions of each of the three plays.
