4.25" x 7". 202pp. Three quarter brown morocco, brown patterned boards. Some light rubbing to binding, one 1/2" scrape to paper board, else a near fine copy. Ibsen's lifelong admirer, James Joyce, reviewing the play, proclaimed: " On the whole, When We Dead Awaken may rank with the greatest of the author's works - if, indeed, it be not the greatest. It is described as the last of the series.a grand epilogue to its ten predecessors. Than these dramas, excellent alike in dramaturgical skill, characterization and supreme interest, the long roll of drama, ancient or modern, has few things better to show.". Bookseller Inventory #
