Henrik Ibsen wrote this dark social satire as a response to the outrage sparked by his previous play, Ghosts, which contained allusions to the spread of syphilis in the community and called attention to hypocrisy in Victorian morality. In An Enemy of the People, Ibsen portrays his frustration through a man called Dr. Stockmann, who discovers the town baths are tainted, possibly making people ill. His goal is to reveal the situation to the town council, or through the newspaper, but confronts resistance from all aspects of the community, who are mainly concerned with the economic repercussions of losing the town’s primary attraction.
