Hedda Gabler (Modern Plays)

by Michael Meyer (Translator), Michael Meyer (Translator), Henrik Ibsen (Author)


The play was intended as a tragedy on the purposeless of life imposed on the women of his time, both by their upbringing and by the social conventions which limited their activities. When it was first produced it met with misunderstanding and abuse. It has nevertheless become one of the most popular of Ibsen's plays.
