Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906) wrote his five-act allegorical drama Peer Gynt in 1867 while living in Italy. It tells the story of the downfall and subsequent redemption of a Norwegian peasant anti-hero. Unlike Ibsen’s previous dramas, it was written in verse and wasn’t originally intended for stage performance.

Michael Meyer is a leading translator of over twenty-five German plays. He has tackled the collections of Henrik Ibsen and August Strindberg, bringing to English audiences titles such as THE WILD DUCK, THE MASTER BUILDER, A DOLL’S HOUSE, PEER GYNT, MISS JULIE, THE GHOST SONATA, HEDDA GABLER, and many others.
