A Doll's House was a wonderful play. The fact that Ibsen discussed social issues within the play make the play even today a model for every human to be equal

A Doll's House was a wonderful play. The fact that Ibsen discussed social issues within the play make the play even today a model for every human to be equal. While reading this during a two week school exploration of masculinity, the power that the play has, is that it made me realize how lucky I am to be a man. The amount of adversity faced by women in Ibsen's time and even today, just was shocking and eye-opening.

Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906) is often called 'the Father of Modern Drama'. He was born in the small Norwegian town of Skien and started writing plays from an early age. In 1864 he left Norway for a 21-year long voluntary exile in Italy and Germany. After successes with the verse dramas Brand and Peer Gynt, he turned to prose, writing his great 12-play cycle of society dramas between 1877 and 1899

Delivering three distinct and powerful visions of characters who choose to defy convention in the pursuit of happiness, Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House and Other Plays is translated with an introduction by Peter Watts in Penguin Classics. The League of Youth was Ibsen's first venture into realistic social drama and marks a turning-point in his style. By 1879 Ibsen was convinced that women suffer an inevitable violation of their personalities within the context of marriage. In A Doll's House, Ibsen caused a sensation with the his portrayal of Nora Helmer, a woman who, gradually arriving at an understanding of her own misery, struggles to break free from the stifling confines of her marriage. Continuing the theme of tensions within the family in The Lady from the Sea, Ibsen put forward the view that freedom with responsibility might at least be a step in the right direction. Peter Watts's lively modern translation is accompanied by an introduction examining Ibsen's life and times, with individual discussions of each of the three plays. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.

Obviously many people still want to keep the classics in their library, and most of the books have been transferred to ebooks. The problem with these are that a lot of stuff doesn't get in like a cover or description. With these Wisehouse Classics you get it all, including original drawings (only in select books) that were in the original books giving the book personality. If I want to read something I always go for the description to decide. There are so many books from the greatest authors that get passed over daily. I hope they do even more because I would get them all.

MJ Arlidge is a new British crime fiction author who writes a riveting story. His first book Eeny Meeny was a Target book selection here in the USA, and I picked it up there about a month ago and became hooked on his main character, Detective Inspector (DI) Helen Grace. She is a tough, plain spoken and somewhat unpopular lead detective (a younger version of Helen Mirren's Jane Tennison), with a bit of a dark side due to her tormented childhood. This book The Doll's House is the third in Arlidge's DI Grace series, and it is more focused on the serial killer, his victims, their families as well as introducing other detective personnel rather than strictly on DI Grace. Very compelling killer, the doll's house of the story is not only a toy from the killer's youth, but is a metaphor for the underground dungeon where he keeps his female victims prisoner. This book and Pop Goes The Weasel are UK publications so I had to wait a couple weeks for the books to arrive via Royal Mail, but these large paperbacks are well worth the wait and are enjoyable fast reads from start to finish.

This play was a high school reading assignment lo' those many years ago, and as with some other similar assignments, I've undertaken an initiative to re-read them, and consider how the book (as well as I) might have aged in the intervening decades. If fussy memory serves me correctly, I appreciated this play the first time around, and hopefully incorporated some of its messages into my thinking.

Henrik Ibsen was the leading Norwegian playwright of the 19th century. This play was first produced in 1879. It is still one of the most popular, and performed plays in the world today. Certainly tame by today's "shock" standards, purportedly it did shock many in the audience when it was first produced, due to its scathing portrait of the staid bourgeois views of the role of women in society and marriage. In brief, not just subordinate, but rather a mere appendage to their father's, at first, beliefs and actions, which would later prepare them for the same role serving their husband. Scandinavia was, and often remains, in the forefront in terms of progressive social ideas and legislation. As one of my Swedish friends would quip: "Sweden is a moral superpower."

The two principal characters are Torvald Helmer and his wife, Nora. There are several supporting characters, including Dr. Rank, a family doctor who is ill, Mrs. Linde an old school friend of Nora's, and Nils Krogstad, a bank employee, who is also much else. Money, and the lack thereof, is the catalyst for much of the action. Just when Torvald's promotion to bank manager seems to resolve the money issue, the "sins of the past" revisit the Helmer's with a vengence.

Ibsen's portrait of Torvald is one of a man who is insufferably pompous, with very fixed ideas on propriety, and his wife's role as a helpless, not to bright, child. This is no marriage of "soul mates," as the expression has it, for marriages of more recent vintage. Torvald views Nora as a "doll," hence the title. He is also utterly selfish, viewing events only from his perspective, and not how they might have impacted his wife. The audience plays the part of the ancient Greek chorus, realizing how much Nora has actually done for Torvald, without his knowledge. I still remember this portrait from my high school read, and the vow not to turn out the same way.

A few decades after this play was first produced, Virginia Woolf wrote her famous A Room of One's Own which had very similar themes. Ibsen though was the first, and the play's denouement, with Nora proclaiming to Torvald that she "needs a life of her own" and must determine who she really is, continues to resonate, almost a century and a half later. The play remains a 5-star read.

Five stars for the story. However, I have to rate the Chios edition with one star to encourage readers to seek out a better edition.

The public domain edition (green cover, free download) uses italics when describing the scene or naming the character who is speaking. Only the dialogue is in unitalicized text, making it easier to read. The Wisehouse Classics edition, while containing a few minor typos, has even better formatting, using both indentation and italics to make it easy on the eyes. The Wisehouse edition was also free when I downloaded it.

You can click the preview option for each Kindle edition to compare. This edition (Chios) is not well-formatted. No need to pay for it when better editions are available for free download.

Well, modern classic or classic modern. Anyway, I hadn't read this for many, many years. I can't believe how riveted I became as the play progressed.
In spite of all that has changed in the world, Ibsen brilliantly evokes the humanity, the search, that is timeless.
Beautiful, painful play.

This play is great and is a classic for good reason. The “illustrated” version is pointless. There are a couple of old pictures in the back of the book. You’d be better served googling “images from a dolls house Henrik Ibsen”. This version wasn’t bad in anyway, but it is not what I would consider illustrated.

The book begins with a young woman, Ruby, waking up in a dark cellar... not knowing how she got there.
Ruby becomes a missing person
After anothers girls body is found buried on a beach, Helen Grace and her team realise they have a serial killer on their hands .
In the middle of the search for Ruby and a serial killer, there is conflict and undermining going on in the police department. Hopefully this will be the end of that story, and we can continue with a peaceful police department
I have already preordered Liar, Liar, the next book in the series
We see Nora, this perfect little doll, song bird, as her husband says. But underneath we see an aggressive human being, stepping in secretly to obtain a loan to help her husbands health. We see her slow change from this pretty china doll into a real human being. The ending of the play I will leave for the reader to discover. I have see Clara Bloom perform this role with huge success. The play is 100 years ahead of it time
