An Enemy of the People An Adaptation of the Play by Henrik Ibsen

Written by Arthur Miller

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics Series

An Enemy of the People An Adaptation of the Play by Henrik Ibsen Synopsis

'The strong must learn to be lonely' When Dr Stockmann discovers that the water in the small Norwegian town in which he is the resident physician has been contaminated, he does what any responsible citizen would do: reports it to the authorities. But Stockmann's good deed has the potential to ruin the town's reputation as a popular spa destination, and instead of being hailed as a hero, Stockmann is labelled an enemy of the people. Arthur Miller's adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's classic drama is a classic in itself, a penetrating exploration of what happens when the truth comes up against the will of the majority.
