Overview

The original CliffsNotes study guides offer a look into critical elements and ideas within classic works of literature.

CliffsNotes on A Doll's House & Hedda Gabler takes you into Henrick Ibsen's dramatic plays, controversial theater productions that inflamed audience reactions in the nineteenth century.

  • Life and background of the playwright
  • Summary of Ibsen's most famous plays
  • Analysis of the plays' structure, themes, and characters
