Ghosts and Other Plays
Henrik Johan Ibsen
Publisher: Penguin Books
These three plays focus on the family and how it struggles to stay together by telling and exposing lies. In “Ghosts” Osvald Alving returns home only to discover the truth about the father he respected and the horrific effect his father's debauchery has had on him. Ibsen's most provocative drama, it strips away the surface of a middle-class family to expose layers of hypocrisy and immorality. “A Public Enemy” sets two brothers against each other when one wishes to make public the facts about the polluted water in the public baths of their town. And “When We Dead Awake” tells of an artist meeting an old lover by chance and rejecting his wife.
