Overview

Hedda Gabler is a play first published in 1890 by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen. The play premiered in 1891 in Germany to negative reviews, but has subsequently gained recognition as a classic of realism, nineteenth century theatre, and world drama. A 1902 production was a major sensation on Broadway starring Minnie Maddern Fiske and following its initial limited run was revived with the actress the following year.

The character of Hedda is considered by some critics as one of the great dramatic roles in theatre, the "female Hamlet," and some portrayals have been very controversial. Depending on the interpretation, Hedda may be portrayed as an idealistic heroine fighting society, a victim of circumstance, a prototypical feminist, or a manipulative villain.

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.
