Product Description

About the Author

Only Shakespeare's plays are performed more frequently than those of Henrik Ibsen (1828–1906). The Norwegian playwright, theater director, and poet scandalized many of his contemporaries as he led the theater into the modern era by exploring the realities behind 19th-century social conventions.

If yes, then you might enjoy this drama. It had the same flavor. It was allright, but definitely not among my favorites.
Ibsen is a wonderful writer, and has some other great works I would highly recommend, such as A Doll's House or Hedda Gabler. But Peer Gynt was one of his first, and in my opinion, he still needed to work on his plot.

Not Ibsen's Version June 4 2010
By N. Ahlhelm - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This version of Peer Gynt should be avoided at all costs. It is a copy that was made with robotic page turners and character recognition software that was marginal. The book is full of misspellings and punctuation errors. If you've never read Ibsen's Peer Gynt, this text is very difficult to follow,

Do not buy! Incomplete! May 24 2011
By E. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Act 4 is truncated after Scene 1 and the scene with the devil as a priest is also missing. I'm not familiar enough with the play to know what else is missing. I regret having paid even a penny for this.

Good play, terrible edition Nov. 9 2010
By Nick Whitworth - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The play is fine.

This printing of it, however, is absolutely terrible. Do not waste your money on it. I don't care how much cheaper it is than any of the others. This is completely unreadable. It appears to have been scanned from an 1908 edition of Peer Gynt. They OCR'ed it (Quite poorly I might add), then they print it on demand.

There are no stage directions. There is almost no punctuation in sentences (no commas, etc). There are numerous misspellings. It is nearly impossible to tell who is speaking as the names are misspelled, sometimes in all caps, sometimes not, sometimes indented. The Act and Scene divisions are almost nonexistent.

I read about 5 pages of it before I gave up and got a photocopied version from my teacher. Complete waste of money.

order a different version! Feb. 5 2011
By lomaryst - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I ordered this play to read for a class in school.
Not only was this "robot generated" edition extremely difficult to read due to typos and random formatting inconsistencies, but portions of it were completely missing - for example 2 entire scenes in act 4.
I actually need to know what happens, and reading this version, I don't.
You get some kind of membership with it that means you can view this play, and other books, online, but if I'd wanted to read the play online, I would have done so with one of the free sites that offers complete verions of texts that are in the public domain.
Apparently, the "robot" technology saves on costs, and if it had cost me 2 or 3 dollars, I may have been more forgiving, but it was not, in my opinion, priced low enough to justify the extremely shabby quality.
If you need to read this play, or want to own it (it is a classic, and the story itself is worthwhile), FIND ANOTHER VERSION!

Great Story Jan. 13 2014
By Daggry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A deep and thought provoking play peppered with a bit of comedic circumstances and interesting language. My only problem with this version is that some words are not spaced right and create one big jumble. It wasn't too bad but a bit of a nuisance.
