The Norwegian text material is based on Ibsen’s works as they appear in "Folkeutgaven", published in Copenhagen 1898-1902. Apparent printing errors have been corrected according to the new edition Henrik Ibsens Skrifter (2005-2010, University of Oslo, Aschoug & Co., Oslo). For critical editions and additional material on the Norwegian texts see
For the translations it is the policy of MI to display, when available, the earliest translations made into each language, as these are considered to be of greatest historical interest. The translations are also arranged chronologically, to mirror the diffusion of Ibsen's work globally.
For more on translations of Ibsen’s works see "Ibsen in Translation" on
