Overview

For many critics and theater aficionados, Henrik Ibsen is considered the father of modern drama. By fixing his authorial gaze on the quotidian struggles, both domestic and professional, of his characters, Ibsen infused his plays with a realism and clarity of vision rarely seen in European theater of the time. His classic works, including A Doll's House, Hedda Gabler, and An Enemy of the People, and their far-reaching influences are discussed in this volume introduced by scholar Harold Bloom.

The Bloom's Modern Critical Views series presents critical portraits of the writers that are most widely read and studied in high schools and colleges. Each volume opens with an introductory essay by Harold Bloom in which he offers his insights into the author's work and an editor's note that comments on the individual analyses that follow. Also included are bibliographic references, notes on the various contributors, and a useful chronology of the writer's life. Bloom's Modern Critical Views is a critical presentation of those men and women who, from ancient times to the present, have shaped the Western literary tradition.
