Ibsen's A Doll's House is one of the most widely debated plays, but which version of the play do we refer to--the original text, translations, stage presentation, radio, film or television adaptations? This study addresses these questions and examines how the choice of medium and directorial approaches have influenced the meaning of the play text. Comparative analysis of the text and performance is framed by biographical background to the play and its impact on later dramatists such as Strindberg and Shaw.

Sie ist eine einfache Schreibkraft. Doch sie hat alle in der Hand ... Mit ein paar Anschlägen auf ihrer Schreibmaschine kann sie jemanden lebenslang ins Gefängnis befördern. Rose Baker arbeitet als Stenotypistin im New York City Police Department. Geständnisse zählen zu ihrem Alltag. Es ist das Jahr 1923. Und wenngleich Rose grausame Details über Messerstechereien und Morde protokolliert – sobald sie den Verhörraum verlässt, zählt sie wieder zum schwachen Geschlecht. Doch die Zeiten ändern sich. Die Frauen auf New Yorks Straßen tragen Bob, trinken Alkohol. Die prüde Rose allerdings hängt am Bild der fürsorglichen Frau. Und an dem charmanten Seargent, den sie heimlich anhimmelt. Bis eines Tages eine neue Kollegin kommt: die glamouröse Odalie. Sie entführt Rose in die Nachtclubs der Stadt. Rose ist schockiert – und ebenso fasziniert. Aus Faszination wird Obsession. Und dann gibt es einen mysteriösen Todesfall ...

A Doll's House

Stephen Siddall’s study of one of Ibsen’s most innovative plays places it firmly in the context of nineteenth century European theatre, ‘novelty theatre’, and the society of Norway of its time. The book discusses responses to Ibsen, especially those of George Bernard Shaw and William Archer in London, and the relationship of the play to issues of theatrical censorship. (More modern treatments, like the remarkable ones by Ingmar Bergman and by Fassbinder, are also covered.) The character of Nora leads into a discussion of feminism, and her relationship with Torvald and the performance of the crucial tarantella is sensitively discussed.

A Doll's House is a three-act play in prose by Henrik Ibsen. The play is significant for its critical attitude toward 19th century marriage norms. It aroused great controversy at the time, as it concludes with the protagonist, Nora, leaving her husband and children because she wants to discover herself. Ibsen was inspired by the belief that "a woman cannot be herself in modern society," since it is "an exclusively male society, with laws made by men and with prosecutors and judges who assess feminine conduct from a masculine standpoint." Its ideas can also be seen as having a wider application: Michael Meyer argued that the play's theme is not women's rights, but rather "the need of every individual to find out the kind of person he or she really is and to strive to become that person." In a speech given to the Norwegian Association for Women's Rights in 1898, Ibsen insisted that he "must disclaim the honor of having consciously worked for the women's rights movement," since he wrote "without any conscious thought of making propaganda," his task having been "the description of humanity." In 2006, the centennial of Ibsen's death, A Doll's House held the distinction of being the world's most performed play.

This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Edition includes a glossary and reader?s notes to help the modern reader contend with Ibsen?s approach to complex human interactions and the relationship between the sexes.Norwegian-born Henrik Ibsen?s classic play about the struggle between independence and security still resonates with readers and audience members today. Often hailed as an early feminist work, the story of Nora and Torvald rises above simple gender issues to ask the bigger question: "To what extent have we sacrificed our selves for the sake of social customs and to protect what we think is love?" Nora?s struggle and ultimate realizations about her life invite all of us to examine our own lives and find the many ways we have made ourselves dolls and playthings in the hands of forces we believe to be beyond our control.

From the outside, the house was unremarkable. Just one of many on an ordinary, suburban estate. But inside was a different matter. With pink ribbons and pink walls, stuffed toy animals everywhere and a dining table laid out for a tea party, it was a doll's house. The doll was sitting at the table. Life size, with blonde, pigtailed hair and rosy red cheeks, dressed in her best pink party dress. Her finger and thumb curled round the handle of a fine china teacup. An adult woman. Covered in blood. Eviscerated. Dead. In all his years on the force, DI Phil Brennan of the Major Incident Squad has never encountered a scene like it.

This book addresses a deceptively simple question: what accounts for the global success of A Doll’s House, Henrik Ibsen’s most popular play? Using maps, networks, and images to explore the world history of the play’s production, this question is considered from two angles: cultural transmission and adaptation. Analysing the play’s transmission reveals the social, economic, and political forces that have secured its place in the canon of world drama; a comparative study of the play’s 135-year production history across five continents offers new insights into theatrical adaptation. Key areas of research include the global tours of nineteenth-century actress-managers, Norway’s soft diplomacy in promoting gender equality, representations of the female performing body, and the sexual vectors of social change in theatre.
