Among the greatest and best known of Ibsen's works, these four plays brilliantly exemplify his landmark contributions to the theater: his probling of social problems, realistic dialogue, and depiction of his characters' inner lives as well as their actions. Rich in symbolism and often autobiographical, each of these dramas deals convincingly and provocatively with the universal human emotions of greed, fear, and sexual hostility, and confronts the eternal conflict between reality and illusion. These Rolf Fjelde translations, newly revised for this edition, have been widely acclaimed as the definitive versions of the major works of the father of modern theater.
