This review is from: Four Major Plays: (Doll's House; Ghosts; Hedda Gabler; and The Master Builder): "Doll's House", "Ghosts", "Hedda Gabler" and "Master Builder" (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
A great collection of Ibsen's plays - a must read for anyone interested in influential drama or literature. There is, however, a newer edition available here: Four Major Plays: (Doll's House; Ghosts; Hedda Gabler; and The Master Builder) (Oxford World's Classics).
The plays chosen are an excellent demonstration of why Ibsen is seen as a major part of the Realist movement; 'Hedda Gabler' raises questions of sexuality and 'A Doll's House' challenges the role of women in society. All four plays were groundbreaking and hugely controversial in their day and are well worth reading. This edition comes complete with a useful introduction outlining Ibsen's life and key contextual factors relevant to each play, as well as some critical comments.
