Recommended Sources about "An Enemy of the People"
Petra Stockton and Enemy of the People are dicussed here in this first comprehensive study of the women in Ibsen's plays and their relationship to the women in the life and career of the playwright. Through close critical readings of the Ibsen texts, as well as the examination of such primary sources as letters and personal papers, Joan Templeton discovers how the important figures in his life (his family, wife, and the actresses themselves) influenced and informed the powerful and inspiring characters he created. Templeton also explores the importance of the early plays and their impact on the later works, and establishes some general patterns in Ibsen's general representation of women.
See "Moral Combat in An Enemy of the People" by Terrance McConnell (pages 99-110) in this online work for a discussion of ethical dilemas in the play.
Other chapters in this same online book shed light on additional dimensions of Ibsen's works.
