Hedda was born to a life of luxury and privilege and marries a man she does not love to avoid becoming a spinster. After returning from her honeymoon, Hedda discovers that her marriage will not be the life of wealth and excitement she was accustomed to and that George will never be the ambitious and successful man she wishes him to be. To escape her boredom, she begins to meddle in the lives of Georges academic rival, Eilert, who is Heddas former paramour, and Eilerts unsuspecting wife, Thea. Hedda fears that Eilert and his professional success may stand in the way of Georges future in academia and Hedda takes it upon herself to sabotage her husbands rival, leading to truly tragic consequences for everyone involved. Marked by one of the most dramatic female roles in all of theater, Hedda Gabler stands as an enduring masterpiece by Norways most famous playwright, Henrik Ibsen.

Ghosts
Ghosts Henrik Ibsen - "Ghosts" is a drama in three acts by Henrik Ibsen, published in 1881 in Norwegian asGengangereand performed the following year. The play is an attack on conventional morality and on the results of hypocrisy. "Ghosts" tells the story of Helen Alving, a widow who is haunted by the many mistresses of her deceased husband and by her son who has inherited syphilis from his philandering father. "Ghosts" is a scathing indictment of Victorian society in which Ibsen refutes the notion that if one simply fulfills one''s duty rather than following one''s desires then a good and noble life will be achieved. Scandalous in its day for its frank discussion of venereal disease and marriage infidelity, "Ghosts" remains to this day an intense psychological drama and sharp social criticism

Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House

release date: Apr 29, 2021
Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House
Secrets. Lies. Love. Lust. Betrayal. Freedom. Experience one of the most iconic plays of all time in this brand-new adaptation of Henrik Ibsen''s classic play A Doll''s House. Nora Helmer is a typical upper middle-class housewife living an exquisitely divine life, as she would say. But there''s much more below the surface than she''s willing to let on! When an old friend shows up unexpectedly on Christmas Eve, it sets off a chain of events that, over the course of three days, changes Nora''s life forever. While this is more of an adaptation than a literal translation, Henrik Ibsen wrote that "I consider it most important that the dialogue in the translations be kept as close to ordinary, everyday speech as possible...I believe that a translator should employ the style which the original author would have used if he had written in the language of those who are to read him in translation." This adaptation honors Ibsen''s original dialogue and intentions (many of which had been lost in translation) while also making the dialogue sound like it was meant for actors today instead of the Victorian-era. Keep in mind that Ibsen had always intended for this play to be set in the present, not the past. How can we do that when the circumstances of the play are so rooted in the time in which the play was written? We can''t set it in the present day because the characters wouldn''t behave this way in the present. However, if we set the language in the present day while keeping everything else in the past, the circumstances of the play will work while also feeling like it belongs "in the present."

A Doll''s House shows as well his gifts for creating realistic dialogue, a suspenseful flow of events and, above all, psychologically penetrating characterizations that make the struggles of his dramatic personages utterly convincing.

Hedda Gabler and Other Plays
Four of Ibsen''s most important plays in superb modern translations, part of the new Penguin Ibsen series. In these four unforgettably intense plays, Henrik Ibsen explores the complex nature of truth, the tension between freedom and responsibility, and the terrible pull that the past exerts over the present. In The Wild Duck, an idealist destroys a family by exposing the lie behind his friend''s marriage. In Rosmersholm, a respectable man is driven to extremes by guilt over his wife''s death, while in The Lady from the Sea a woman is caught between her family and the enticement of the wild sea. And in Hedda Gabler, one of Ibsen''s most famous and vivid anti-heroines struggles to break free from the conventional life she has created for herself, with tragic results. The new Penguin series of Ibsen''s major plays offer the best available editions in English, under the general editorship of Tore Rem. The plays have been freshly translated by the best modern translators and are based on the recently published, definitive Norwegian edition of Ibsen''s works. They all include new introductions and editorial apparatus by leading scholars.
