An Enemy of the People

An Enemy of the People


by Henrik Ibsen

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?


An Enemy of the People gets a G rating because the good doctor is much more concerned about the corruption of society than he is with amor. The closest thing we see to intimacy is Hovstad's botched come on to Dr. Stockmann's daughter, Petra. The girl instantly rejects his advance, though, so it's far from steamy.
