Subject

Theatre

Description

Manipulating and controlling everyone around her, Hedda Gabler is an unlikeable character, but this doesn’t mean she can’t be a sympathetic or understandable one. When first introduced to Henrik Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler, a reader or audience member can have difficulty understanding Hedda’s motivations for her behavior. Examining Hedda’s role in society, her relationships with the few people in her life, her psychological pain and her final situation and given circumstances make her motivations and actions that lead to Løvborg’s death and her suicide logical.

There are two papers included here: one submitted for the theatre course, and one for competition.
