    A Doll’s Houseis probably the most famous and best-known of Ibsen’s plays. As M.C. Bradbrook puts it, ‘Ibsen for many years, and to some people even today, means the author of A Doll’s House’.1 In fact, it was this play which made him known all over the world.2As William Archer rightly observes, ‘it is with A Doll’s House that Ibsen enters upon his kingdom as a world-poet.
