It is useful to look at how works of art were received, both when they were first published, presented or performed, and over the passage of time. Here is a link to some of the earliest reviews of Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, as well as an article about recent productions. Bonus: a 9.06-minute contemporary homage to Ibsen’s play, and an article about it. And the National Library of Norway’s Ibsen page.
