Description

The original "CliffsNotes" study guides offer a look into critical elements and ideas within classic works of literature. "CliffsNotes on A Doll's House & Hedda Gabler" takes you into Henrick Ibsen's dramatic plays, controversial theater productions that inflamed audience reactions in the nineteenth century. "A Doll's House" follows the story of a housewife who emerges from the confinement of her married life to confront the conditions of the outside world. Typical of Ibsen's dramas, "Hedda Gabler" portrays a depraved world in which women in particular submit to unsatisfying socially imposed roles.Summaries and expert commentaries cover each act within both plays; other features that help you figure out these important works include: life and background of the playwright; summary of Ibsen's most famous plays; analysis of the plays' structure, themes, and characters; a complete list of Ibsen's drama; and, sample exam questions and essay topics. Classic literature or modern-day treasure - you'll understand it all with expert information and insight from "CliffsNotes" study guides.
