Illustrated with 12 coloured plates with titled tissue-guards and 38 line drawings by Arthur Rackham.

--------From the translation of R. Farquharson Sharp his translation is an improvement over former ones because he refused the temptation of retaining the rhymed verse of the original. He has instead chosen unrhymed verse in Ibsen's original meter in an attempt to capture the literal meaning.
