Overview

In Hedda Gabler and The Master Builder Ibsen shifted his focus from the pressures exerted on women by society to the pressures individuals exert on other individuals in their urge to dominate and control one another.

This collection of plays is taken from the Oxford Ibsen, James McFarlane's acclaimed scholarly edition.
