Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Beyond question, Frederick and Lise-Lone Marker's latest book will get very heavy use in surveys of world drama and as a reference source for students and teachers of Ibsen, Strindberg, and even Ingmar Bergman. The illustrations are excellent and helpful. One of the great strengths of the Markers is their ability to bring important stagings of major Scandinavian plays to life, a not inconsiderable accomplishment." George C. Schoolfield, World Litertaure Today
