Summary (From the publisher):

The compelling dramatic power particulat to Scandinavian theater is reflected in the work of the Nordic masters Ibsen and Strindberg. These two men, one a realist, the other a visionary, have exerted a most significant influence upon the course of modern drama.

The superb anthology presents seven great Scandinavian plays, most of which are unavailable in any other paperback edition. Included are Jeppe on the Hill, the famous comedy by Scandinavia's first major playwright, Ludvig Holberg; and two plays by contemporary dramatists Par Lagerkvist and Kjeld Abell, who carry on the tradition of Scandinavian innovation, originality, and exploration into the farthest reaches of human character.
