A doll's house

Ibsen, Henrik

9781408106020 - A doll's house

Artikelomschrijving

The slamming of the front door at the end of A Dolls House shatters the romantic masquerade of the Helmers marriage. In their stultifying and infantilised relationship, Nora and Torvald have deceived themselves and each other both consciously and subconsciously, until Nora acknowledges the need for individual freedom. A revised student edition of classic set text: A Dolls House (1879), is a masterpiece of theatrical craft which, for the first time portrayed the tragic hypocrisy of Victorian middle class marriage on stage. The play ushered in a new social era and exploded like a bomb into contemporary life. Meyers translations of Ibsen are a major fact in ones general sense of post-war drama. Their vital pace, their unforced insistence on the poetic centre of Ibsens genius, have beaten academic versions from the field (George Steiner)
