An Enemy of the people (original Norwegian title: En folkefiende) is an 1882 drama by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen. Ibsen wrote it in response to the public outcry against his play Ghosts, which at that time was considered scandalous. Ghosts had challenged the hypocrisy of Victorian morality and was deemed indecent for its veiled references to syphilis.
Upon completion of the play, Ibsen wrote to his publisher in Copenhagen, Denmark : "I am still uncertain as to whether I should call it a comedy or a straight drama. It may have many traits of comedy, but it also is based on a serious idea."
This edition has been formatted for your reader, with an active table of contents.  The play has also been annotated, with additional information about the work and also the playwright, including an overview, plot overviews for each act, characters, themes, adaptations, biographical and bibliographical information.
