Review quote

"A very well done introduction, together with a compact and convenient collection of plays."--Jan Gorak, University of Denver"James McFarlane's introduction is exemplary and his translation masterful. A pleasure to read!"--Brice Thompson, University of California, Santa Cruz"By far the best translation of Ibsen available. Every detail in an Ibsen play is important; every detail and most manners of the Norwegian are accuretly recaptured in these masterly translations."--Simon Williams, University of California, Santa Barbara"A fine, lively translation of these classics. Also, it is great to have these particular four Ibsen plays in one volume."--Harold J. Baxter, Ph.D., Trinity College"The McFarlane translation was a pleasant surprise. Having used various translators and editions, I'll stop here, content, well-content with content and format."--Reg Saner, University of Colorado (I just enter 'em)"These excellent and beautifully rendered plays make accessible to students a variety of themes - late 19th century feminism, the overbearing bourgeois society - at an affordable price."--Barbara B. Davis, Antioch Collegeshow more
