The Lady From the Sea

Henrik Ibsen (1828 - 1906)
Translated by Eleanor Marx Aveling (1855 - 1898)

The title character in Ibsen's drama, Ellida Wangel, is married to a prosperous doctor, but feels stifled by her roles as wife and stepmother to her husband's two daughters by a previous marriage, Hilde and Bolette. Ten years earlier she had promised to marry another man - and on a sultry summer day, he comes back to her. Ellida must decide whether to choose the safety of her life with Wangel, or to yield to the siren song of the sea. (Summary by Elizabeth Klett)
