Brand free pdf Excerpt from Brand: A Dramatic Poem Ibsen was first known in England by what are usually called his Social Plays, representing his final phase of literary activity. Those who knew his earlier work, including The Vikings, The Pretenders, Brand, Peer Gynt, and the Poems, felt that he was only half represented in English, and gradually translations of the earlier plays were produced. Edmund Garrett contributed a version of Brand. But there still remained a gap, so long as the Poems were untranslated, for Ibsen's Digte have a high significance, partly as throwing light on his dramatic work, and partly as representing a side of his genius which only finds imperfect and fragmentary representation elsewhere. This gap it was Edmund Garrett's intention to fill by translating the whole of the Digte. Including the Songs from the Dramas they number sixty-four in the original volume. He was not able to carry out his project in its completeness, but what he actually accomplished suffices to give the reader an adequate conception of the scope and power of Ibsen's lyric poetry, and it gives this volume a place of its own in the English Ibsen literature-x and it is primarily for the sake of these lyrics that the present collection is issued. The opportunity, however, has been taken of republishing the version of Brand with the translators manuscript revisions- and a few further additions make this volume a complete collection of Garrett's translations from Ibsen. The editors desire to express their cordial thanks to the Editor and proprietors of the Westminster Gazette for leave to reprint the poems which appeared in its columns- and to Sir E. T.Cook and Mr. Edward Arnold, for permitting them to quote the passage from the Life of Edmund Garrett on p. ix.
