About the book:

Ibsen ascended to the first ranks of European writers in the late nineteenth century and has remained there ever since.

The Norton Critical Edition includes five major plays spanning Ibsens long career in recent translations by Brian Johnston (Peer Gynt, The Wild Duck, and The Master Builder) and Brian Johnston and Rick Davis (A Doll House and Hedda Gabler). The translation of Peer Gynt appears for the first time in this Norton Critical Edition.

Backgrounds gives students an understanding of Ibsens creative process with selections from his correspondence and other writings. Twenty-seven documents have been collected and arranged by play, with a section of autobiographical writings at the end.

Ibsens plays continue to provoke diverse commentary. Criticism includes nineteen of the most important responses to Ibsens work, among them essays by Bernard Shaw, Sandra Saari, E. M. Forster, Hugh Kenner, and Joan Templeton.

A Chronology and Selected Bibliography are also included.
