Overview

Ibsen's A Doll's House is one of the most widely debated plays, but which version of the play do we refer to—the original text, translations, stage presentation, radio, film or television adaptations? This study addresses these questions and examines how the choice of medium and directorial approaches have influenced the meaning of the play text. Comparative analysis of the text and performance is framed by biographical background to the play and its impact on later dramatists such as Strindberg and Shaw.
