5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Play 2 Feb. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The book has around forty obvious typos, but it is still a fantastic play, written in simple and eloquent language, full of social and psychological intrigues and curious examples of wisdom.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Viking's spirit and a robust conscience 26 Dec. 2014
By Chiek - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another brilliant play by Ibsen. Next to 'The Wild Duck', this is my favourite Ibsen's play so far. I like it more than 'Ghosts' and 'Peer Gynt' because of the intense theme behind it. A man with a Viking's spirit and a robust conscience will do things as he pleases and without remorse even if others suffer for his action. He is an amoral hedonistic man who is a menace to his family and to society at large. In some ways, this play reminds me of Dostoyevsky's 'Crime and Punishment' because it dwelt with crossing the line and comitting a crime. But there is a big difference because Raskolnikov had a non robust conscience. He spirit broke down and with Godsend Sonya, his soul was redeemed. As for Solness (the master builder), there was no redemption for him. Hilda, the angel of death, delivered the retribution he deserved. In both Raskolnikov and Solness, dispensation of providence provided both with two different conscience. One with a robust conscience. The other a remdemptive conscience. Both had different ending, retribution for Solness, forgiveness, hope and redemption for Raskolnikov.
4.0 out of 5 stars The Master Builder is inspiering play 11 Jun. 2013

Not every person is capable to live that kind of life.
But life itself is getting better for people around "The Masers Builders" in many different areas.
I think Henrik Ibsen himself is a bit like his protagonist.

The kindleadaption is good enough. However, and as Norwegian I shouldn't say this. If you have to read this for school, go find the play on youtube - at least you will be out pf your misery in less than two hours.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent translation. Accessible in Classroom 16 Jun. 2013

I teach Theatre in a University, so having the play in my mini iPad or iPhone without lugging around the huge anthology is a real plus. Decent translation. Am building up my collection of "e plays".
