An Enemy of the People: An Adaptation of the Play by Henrik Ibsen. Arthur Miller. Penguin Classics.
When Dr. Stockmann discovers that his town’s water is poisoned, he does what any responsible citizen would do: reports it to the authorities. But Stockmann’s good deed has the potential to ruin the town’s reputation as a popular spa destination, and instead of being hailed as a hero, Stockmann is labeled an enemy of the people. Arthur Miller’s adaptation is a classic in itself, a penetrating exploration of what happens when the truth comes up against the will of the majority.
