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.

A Doll's House follows the story of a housewife who emerges from the confinement of her married life to confront the conditions of the outside world. Typical of Ibsen's dramas, Hedda Gabler portrays a depraved world in which women in particular submit to unsatisfying socially imposed roles. Summaries and expert commentaries cover each act within both plays; other features that help you figure out these important works include

  • Life and background of the playwright
  • Summary of Ibsen's most famous plays
  • Analysis of the plays' structure, themes, and characters
  • A complete list of Ibsen's drama
  • Sample exam questions and essay topics

Classic literature or modern-day treasure — you'll understand it all with expert information and insight from CliffsNotes study guides.
