I read An Enemy of the People via DailyLit.com. This is a site where you subscribe to a book and receive a bite-sized chunk of reading each day. This play arrived each day over 44 days. Though I wondered if reading in this method would hold my attention, it did. A snippet of literature in the middle of the day that did not require a long-term commitment and offered just enough to ponder.
The play itself was transparent and apparently a revenge play written by Ibsen in response to the public’s rejection of another of his plays for it’s supposed smuttiness. However, it was well worth the read for its ironic wit and for the “liberal-minded, high-minded” doctor’s impressive rhetoric.
