The Master Builder, Little Eyolf, John Gabriel Borkman and When We Dead Awaken ‘Castles in the air – they’re so easy to retreat into. And easy to build, too – especially for those master builders with – with dizzy consciences’ Ibsen’s last four plays were sensational bestsellers, performed in theatres across Europe. These final works, exploring sexuality and death, the conflict between generations, the drive for creativity and the frailty of the body, cemented Ibsen’s dramatic reputation, and continue to fuel debate today on whether they celebrate freedom and love or are instead savagely ironic studies of our shared human flaws. This new translation, the first to be based on the latest critical edition of Ibsen’s works, offers the best version available in English.
