About the Author

Henrik Ibsen, poet and playwright was born in Skein, Norway, in 1828. His creative work spanned 50 years, from 1849-1899, and included 25 plays and numerous poems. During his middle, romantic period (1840-1875), Ibsen wrote two important dramatic poems, Brand and Peer Gynt, while the period from 1875-1899 saw the creation of 11 realistic plays with contemporary settings, the most famous of which are A Doll's House, Ghosts, Hedda Gabler, and The Wild Duck. Henrik Ibsen died in Christiania (now Oslo), Norway in 1906.

From Our Editors

The enlightened, persecuted minority is at odds with the ignorant, powerful majority in this stunning portrayal of human conflict. When Doctor Thomas Stockmann learns the famous and financially successful baths in his hometown are contaminated, he insists they be shut down for repairs. For his honesty, he becomes a laughing stock, persecuted and ridiculed by all. An Enemy of the People is one of the most frequently performed plays by Henrik Ibsen.

Appropriate for ages: 14
