Editorial Reviews

USA Today
New, raw, gut-twisting and gripping. Easily the hottest drama this season.
Wall Street Journal
Bold, brilliant and alive.
Time
A thunderclap of an evening that takes your breath away.
Associated Press
The stuff of Broadway legend.
From the Publisher

“Meyer's translations of Ibsen are a major fact in one's general sense of post-war drama. Their vital pace, their unforced insistence on the poetic centre of Ibsen's genius, have beaten academic versions from the field.” —The New Statesman

“A powerful statement of [Ibsen's] radical beliefs about gender, the folly of idealism and the nature of modern love.” —Evening Standard

Ibsen is one of the greats, but requires a bit of a disconnect from our modern notion of drama. Very wordy and monolog ridden, but very good insights and ideas.

Is about human rights more than women rights. Nora is protraited as weak but really she strong enough to walk out on Torvald

Good formatting for a play, makes the work easier to read. I'm not fond of the play itself, but this is a good copy.
