By Ivo de Figueiredo

Ivo de Figueiredos tobindsbiografi om Henrik Ibsen - "Mennesket" og "Masken" (2006/2007) - ble en kritikersuksess av de sjeldne. I biografien forener han den gode fortellingen med historikerens grundighet. Ibsens liv og litterære verk blir sett i sammenheng med det norske og europeiske samfunnet som skapte ham - og som han i sin tur var med å forme.
Med "Henrik Ibsen. Mennesket og masken" blir fortellingen om Ibsen samlet i ett bind. Biografien er revidert og forkortet og dermed lettere tilgjengelig for et større publikum. Samtidig vil også denne utgaven være en standardbiografi for studenter og alle litteraturinteresserte lesere.

«Ibsen-biografien står i stil med objektet: uovertruffen ... Dette er stor, norsk sakprosa ... mesterlig gjennomført.»
Tom Egil Hverven, Klassekampen

«Med en grundighet og en lærdom som tar pusten fra en, kommer han med en fortelling som virker både troverdig og manhattan, og velskrevet.»
