A Global Doll's House : Ibsen and Distant Visions, Hardback Book

Share

Description

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.
