Hedda Gabler / Edition 1

Universally condemned in 1890 when it was written, Hedda Gabler has since become one of Ibsen's most frequently performed plays. Its title role is elusive and complex: Hedda is an intelligent and ambitious woman, who has no means of finding personal fulfilment in the stifling world of late nineteenth-century bourgeois society. Too frightened of scandal to become involved with a brilliant, wayward writer, she opts for a conventional but loveless marriage in the hope of finding surrogate fulfilment through her husband's career. Blending comedy and tragedy disconcertingly together, Ibsen probes the thwarted aspirations and hidden anxieties of his characters against a background of contemporary social conditions and attitudes.

The numerous typos render this edition impossible to read

A classic Henrik Ibsen story about a women trapped in her own societal standing, Hedda Gabler is a classic play everyone should read. This is short enough to read in one sitting. The plot isn't complicated to follow, and the most interesting thing is that while it's easy to identify with the protagonist , Hedda, you can never quite decide if you like her.

This book is excellent in that it delves into the complex relationships that spur a person's actions and reactions.
