A Doll's House And Other Plays

The League Of Youth; A Doll's House; The Lady From The Sea


The plays in this volume, each written a decade apart, demonstrate different sides of Henrik Ibsenís genius, but all deal with themes of alienation from society and the breaking down of convention. A Dollís House (1879) portrays a woman questioning her duty to her husband and seeking to escape from the stifling confines of her marriage Ė a theme that shocked contemporary audiences and established Ibsenís name outside Scandinavia. In The League of Youth (1869), his first prose drama, Ibsen created a vivid comedy about a hypocritical politician, and in The Lady from the Sea (1888) he depicts a woman who longs for the life she enjoyed by the sea before she was married. Peter Wattsí lively modern translation is accompanied by an introduction in which he examines Ibsenís life and times, with individual discussions of the three plays.
