Here, a selection of the finest articles published in the journal Scandinavica on the subject of Henrik Ibsen’s work is gathered to commemorate the centenary of the death of the Norwegian playwright. The selection has been made to reflect the breadth and variety of scholarship into Ibsen’s plays during the past four decades. The articles cover a wide range of general topics, from his reception in England and an analysis of early performances of the plays in London to studies of his language and style, as well as individual essays on specific plays.
