About this title


Henrik Ibsen’s The Stuff of Kings (previously known as The Pretenders) is a historical tragedy in the manner of Shakespeare and a work of such excellence that major Ibsen scholars have deservedly called it Ibsen’s “first masterpiece.” This new translation of the play has given it a new, more appropriate title and is the only translation of it into American English. In addition, the translator has included a major commentary on the play and various materials designed to encourage attempts to stage it.

About the Author:

Thomas F. Van Laan is a Professor Emeritus of Rutgers University, where he taught English for 35 years and was Chair of the English Department for six and a half years. He has published numerous books and articles on drama, especially the plays of Ibsen and Shakespeare.
