Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"David Eldrige's new version of The Lady from the Sea (1888) is highly commendable - it's lucid, sufficiently lyrical and attentively colloquial but not showily, distractingly so."—Daily Telegraph "This fine new version of the text by David Eldridge keeps the language lyrical yet lean, laced with a mordant wit."—The Times (of  London) "David Eldridge's superb new version plunges headfirst into its strange Freudian depths without neglecting its sly humor. This is writing that is attuned to the tug of unspoken desire that threatens to drag us all under, but also to the embarrassing misunderstandings of everyday life. Encompasses all those familiar Ibsen themes: duty, responsibility, the position of women and how the past encroaches on the future."—The Guardian
