Since its publication in 1890, Ibsen's Hedda Gabler has been a recurring point of fascination for readers, theater audiences, and artists alike. Newly married, yet utterly bored, the character of Hedda Gabler evokes reflection on beauty, love, passion, death, nihilism, identity, and a host ofother topics of an existential nature. It is no surprise that Ibsen's work has gained the attention of philosophically-minded readers from Nietzsche, Lou Andreas-Salome, and Freud, to Adorno, Cavell, and beyond. Once staged at avant-garde theaters in Paris, London, and Berlin, Ibsen is now a globalphenomenon. The enigmatic character of Hedda Gabler remains intriguing to ever-new generations of actors, audiences, and readers. Hedda Gabler occupies a privileged place in the history of European drama and as a work of literature, and, as this volume demonstrates, invites profound and worthwhile philosophical questions. Through ten newly commissioned chapters, written by leading voices in the fields of drama studies,European philosophy, Scandinavian studies, and comparative literature, this volume brings out the philosophical resonances of Hedda Gabler in particular and Ibsen's drama more broadly.

In these three unforgettably intense plays, Henrik Ibsen explores the problems of personal and social morality that he perceived in the world around him and, in particular, the complex nature of truth. The Pillars of the Community (1877) depicts a corrupt shipowner’s struggle to hide the sins of his past at the expense of another man’s reputation, while in The Wild Duck (1884) an idealist, believing he must tell the truth at any cost, destroys a family by exposing the lie behind his friend’s marriage. And Hedda Gabler (1890) portrays an unhappily married woman who is unable to break free from the conventional life she has created for herself, with tragic results for the entire family.

This carefully crafted ebook: “The Best of Henrik Ibsen: A Doll's House + Hedda Gabler + Ghosts + An Enemy of the People + The Wild Duck + Peer Gynt (Illustrated)” contains 6 books in one volume and is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. 1. A Doll's House is a three-act play in prose by Henrik Ibsen. It premiered at the Royal Theatre in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1879. The play is significant for its critical attitude toward 19th century marriage norms. It aroused great controversy at the time, as it concludes with the protagonist, Nora, leaving her husband and children because she wants to discover herself. 2. Hedda Gabler is a play published in 1890. It premiered in 1891 in Germany and gained recognition as a classic of realism, nineteenth century theatre, and world drama. Hedda may be portrayed as an idealistic heroine fighting society, a victim of circumstance, a prototypical feminist, or a manipulative villain. 3. Ghosts is a play written in 1881 and first staged in 1882. Like many of Ibsen's better-known plays, Ghosts is a scathing commentary on 19th-century morality. Ghosts had challenged the hypocrisy of Victorian morality and was deemed indecent for its veiled references to syphilis. 4. An Enemy of the people is an 1882 play originally written in Danish in response to the public outcry against his play Ghosts, which at that time was considered scandalous. 5. The Wild Duck (1884), in a sense, solved Ibsen's own moral dilemma as he struggled between a militant idealism (as in Enemy of the People) and his own worldly temperament. With a pragmatic, anti-romantic viewpoint, this drama presents a continuum between the opposing values of the Ideal and the Real. 6. Peer Gynt is a five-act play in verse, based on the fairy tale Per Gynt. Written in the Dano-Norwegian language, it was first published in 1867. In Peer Gynt, Ibsen satirized the weaknesses of the Norwegian people, incorporating them into the character of Peer. Henrik Johan Ibsen (1828 – 1906) was a major 19th-century Norwegian playwright, theatre director, and poet. He is often referred to as "the father of realism" and is one of the founders of Modernism in theatre. His major works include Brand, Peer Gynt, An Enemy of the People, Emperor and Galilean, A Doll's House, Hedda Gabler, Ghosts, The Wild Duck, Rosmersholm, and The Master Builder.

Matthew John's youthful and aesthetic adaptation of Ibsen's renowned masterpiece is now presented as a screenplay, complete with production photographs, to accompany the movie or as a stand-alone text. Hedda Gabler returns, dissatisfied, from her long honeymoon. Bored by her aspiring academic husband and despising an existence that is, for her, devoid of freedoms and idealistic enchantment, she foresees a life of tedious convention. And so, aided and abetted by her predatory confidante, Judge Brack, Hedda seeks fulfilment of her desires through manipulating the fates of those around her to devastating effect. Matthew John's sumptuous feature film version premiered at the International Ibsen Festival, Oslo. For the first time, the film introduces unseen characters and delves beyond the traditional 'single set' portrayal of the classic play to offer a sweeping period drama of spectacular locations, horses and carriages and lavish costumes in the finest British tradition of the genre. Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906), Norwegian poet and playwright, is the most frequently performed dramatist in the world after Shakespeare. One of the founders of Modernism in theatre, he is often referred to as "the father of realism" who tempered naturalism with an understanding of social responsibility and individual psychology. Ibsen's later work examined the realities that lay behind many façades, revealing much that was disquieting to many contemporaries. Ibsen forced his characters to scrutinize their past, the conditions of the society to which they belonged, and the methods by which they had gained their own petty ambitions, in order that they might pronounce judgment upon themselves. The action is concerned with character's deeds and outward lives, while his themes explore the moral and ethical relations of the individual with wider mankind. Ibsen is often ranked as one of the most distinguished playwrights in the European tradition and was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1902, 1903, and 1904. Matthew John was born and raised in the Cotswolds in England and, like many an endearing rogue, has been doing his best to flee picturesque perfection for a life of rakish misdemeanour, eternal summer and no small degree of scandal. He is a former thespian, royal household event co-ordinator, veteran of the Cannes Film Festival and not-quite-reformed bad boy. An undying love for opulent beauty, outrageous risk and tragic romance, resulted in a wild decision one morning to make a film adaptation of one of literature's best. Hedda Gabler is his directorial and screenwriting debut and is available on DVD and VOD platforms worldwide. British-Australian Penelope Brooke-Hamilton has been a film designer, lion (and sea lion) trainer, helicopter hostess, vintner, dive boat chef, and flying trapeze artist. She has lived in the jungles of Papua New Guinea, dived the Barrier Reef with sharks, out-skied an avalanche and had her hair styled by racoons. When not on a film set or at a writing desk, she can be found in forgotten corners of libraries, studying animals at the zoo or backstage in the theatre. She and her animals live in the mythical Arthurian lands of Somerset with well-worn Wellington boots and a lifetime collection of books.

Henrik Ibsen (20th March, 1828 - 23rd May, 1906) is often referred to as the father of realism and ranked just below Shakespeare as Europe's greatest ever playwright especially as his plays are performed most frequently throughout the world after Shakespeare's. Ibsen was Norwegian and although set his plays in Norway, he wrote them in Danish and lived most of his professional life in Italy and Germany. His affect on the theatre is still evident today and shapes the distinction of plays being art as opposed to entertainment since he broke down all previous traditions and explored issues, developed characterisation, revealed uncomfortable truths, challenged assumptions and broke down facades in ourselves as well as society. These factors are clearly demonstrated in Hedda Gabler where Ibsen presents one of the most interesting and elusive heroines in theatrical history. Hedda is the daughter of a deceased General and enters into a loveless marriage with the lacklustre George Tesman. Hedda's desperation is totally misunderstood by those around yet portrayed so realistically with some of his finest most memorable prose that we can empathise with her behaviour. Hedda aptly points out: "I think I have a natural talent for boring myself to death." This Ibsen work certainly does not bore and is an essential riveting read.
