An Enemy of the People is a play written by Henrik Ibsen and published for the first time in 1882. The main theme is the confrontation between the economic interests of a few against the health of the population.
The book tells the story of Dr. Thomas Stockmann, a man of strong principles, who lives in a city with a famous spa that receives many visitors and generates enough income for the town.
However, one day Dr. Stockmann finds a bacterium in the water that poses a health risk to the population, so he must warn the others of the danger even knowing that he will find opposition among the city's powerful businessmen.
Powerful people, the media and even the mayor, who is his brother, confront Dr. Stockmann since they see it as very detrimental to the economy to have to close the spa and disinfect it...
R. Farquharson Sharp's translation has been used for this digital edition of the book An Enemy of the People.
-Dr. Stockmann´s sitting-room.
It is evening. The room is plainly but neatly appointed and furnished. In the right-hand wall are two doors; the farther leads out to the hall, the nearer to the doctor's study.
