User Review  - blake.rosser - LibraryThing

A simple and somewhat exaggerated tale of one man's struggle to proclaim the unpleasant truth to his community, and the ostracism that entails. Important, especially having been translated and adapted around the McCarthy era. Read full review

User Review  - Danny - Goodreads

It is terible. Don't read it. Ibsen is just an angry old person, who shouldn't have written anything because he isn't a good writter. Read full review
