It also focuses on the critical judgments of Indian poets, playwrights, interpreters, directors and producers along with their interpretation, translation, transformation, and stage production of Ibsen's plays including A Doll's House, Ghosts, An Enemy of the People, and Rosmersholm. It also attempts to discuss social, religious, cultural and economic circumstances of the people of Indian Subcontinent. His middle period prose plays are considered as social problematic plays, and his profound psychology, thought and imagination have been influenced in Bengali dramatic composition and stage performance.
