"Nunca debe usted usar sus mejores pantalones cuando vaya a luchar por la libertad y la verdad" (Un enemigo del pueblo) Henrik Ibsen creó una obra dramática de enorme contenido psicológico y de una ideología profunda. Fue un iniciador en el arte dramático y representante de una época nueva siendo el creador del llamado "teatro de ideas" y del "teatro simbólico". Lla obra de Ibsen se puede considerar como la más influyente del siglo XX en el campo del drama. Sus trabajos se representan continuamente en los países civilizados y se han adaptado al cine y a la televisión innumerables veces.
Four Major Plays: Volume IA Doll HouseThe Wild DuckHedda GablerThe Master BuilderAmong the greatest and best known of Ibsen's works, these four plays brilliantly exemplify his landmark contributions to the theater: his realistic dialogue, probing of social problems, and depiction of characters' inner lives as well as their actions. Rich in symbolism and often autobiographical, each of these dramas deals convincingly and provocatively with such universal themes as greed, fear, and sexual hostility, and confronts the eternal conflict between reality and illusion. These Rolf Fjelde translations have been widely acclaimed as the definitive versions of the major works of the father of modern theater.Translated and with a Foreword by Rolf Fjeldeand a New Afterword by Joan Templeton

"Wallace Shawn is one of the most complex and uncompromising moralists of the American theater." - Ben Brantley, New York Times"At once the U.S.'s most profound and overlooked playwright." - David HareThis translation and adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's Master Builder Solness by Wallace Shawn, a writer known for his own bleakly hilarious and provocative plays, was used by legendary director André Gregory during fifteen years of work on a theatrical production which, instead of being produced as a play, was made into a film by Jonathan Demme-a film that is an utterly contemporary vision of Ibsen's classic play.
