    " I KNEW IT! I KNEW IT WOULD END LIKE THAT! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Daniel Phelan | 2/3/2014

    " Can't exactly say why it was disappointing, but it didn't really seem to be *about* anything. And it was slow, and just did not do much for me. I might still try other Ibsen plays, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 2/3/2014

    " This is an interesting play, at first I wasn't 100% sure I liked it but the more I've thought about it the more intriguing it has become. Hedda is the main character (some call her the female Hamlet)who is very newly married but not very happy about it. She goes to great lengths to disrupt the lives of those around her. She is a very complex charater and depending on your take she could be a villian, heroine fighting society, or a victim of circumstance. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Geoffrey | 1/29/2014

    " Worst play I've ever read. Terribly conceived; poorly executed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 1/18/2014

    " Tragic drama. It's actually a playwright which has been made into a quick book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brian | 1/13/2014

    " Didn't connect to the characters as much as A Doll House, making it emotionally not as tugging. IN the end, I could intellectually understand the motives and see the messages, but I didn't feel them as much as I have in Ibsen's other plays. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara Stiles | 1/12/2014

    " WOW! I just read this for a class and I must say I am impressed. Ibsen has a twisted mind and I love it! I wish this had been my first introduction to him. It is a fantastic read. When you think it's getting a little dull or slow just push on because everything in the end works and and will surprise the hell out of you. It did me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Apoorva | 1/6/2014

    " Too many real-life parallels here. The desire of wanting to break/manipulate stupid people...alas, I don't have Hedda's heart. Like every female actress, I'd like to play her. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bruno | 12/10/2013

    " Living vIcariously in the worst way. A villain and a heroin. Histrionic and bipolar. A survivor of his own times. Read Hedda Gabler "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meghan | 12/5/2013

    " I thought it was interesting. I understood Hedda's point of view and hoped she would be content in her life. I do understand why she killed herself yet I still didn't like the ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Isabella Rodriguez | 11/26/2013

    " I love Hedda. My favorite Ibsen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimberley | 11/24/2013

    " This was stunning. I was impressed with the execution. The author is a genius. Exactly the right information is portrayed perfectly along the way, some foreshadowing. Amazing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kari | 11/10/2013

    " Another of my favorite plays. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Needleroozer | 11/10/2013

    " I think I read this book for school of some kind. I do remember liking it as a feminist statement of an independent woman. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thing Two | 10/11/2013

    " Ha! Great story. Going to see the play in a few weeks. I bet Ibsen had a ball writing this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Corriebiesecker | 9/27/2013

    " Although the play has some horrific themes, the characters are incredibly complex and interesting. I couldn't help but like this play! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley Smith | 6/1/2013

    " Any play that ends with the heroine shooting herself in the head deserves a good review! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sebas | 5/6/2013

    " this is a good play. I recommend it. I even laughed a couple of times! (not a comedy though) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shuruq | 3/22/2013

    " Hedda Gabler's by Ibsen is an interesting play, Hedda is an evil, awful woman but I guess she got this way due to never learning how to care about anything, or anyone other than herself. the ending explain how miserable her life was that she did not even second guess killing herself "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lily Koppel | 3/17/2013

    " Florence wrote in her diary, "Read Hedda Gabler for the tenth time." I read this while writing The Red Leather Diary, but not ten times! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Becky | 2/23/2013

    " Read this in HS, made me want to vomit. Still makes me slightly nauseous when I think about it now... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hayes | 2/16/2013

    " I remember not liking this very much. Ibsen was, and is, a mystery to me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Irene | 1/14/2013

    " One of my favorite playwrites and one of my favorite plays "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ceren Turan | 7/14/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Omar Shamsi | 4/17/2012

    " A very powerful, dramatic story of what it means to be a woman in the nineteenth century and the outcome of some of our actions. A brilliant play indeed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emma | 3/28/2012

    " It was a good play. I definitely prefer Ibsen over Chekov. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Betty | 3/11/2012

    " This is just about the best play ever written, in my opinion. I read it first in college, then later I taught it in my Advanced Placement classes, as an English teacher in a California school. Don't miss this one! "

About the Author
Author Henrik Ibsen

Henrik Ibsen (1828–1906) was a major nineteenth-century Norwegian playwright, theater director, and poet. He is often referred to as “the father of prose drama” and is one of the founders of modernism in the theater. His major works include Brand, Peer Gynt, An Enemy of the People, Emperor and Galilean, A Doll’s House, Ghosts, The Wild Duck, and The Master Builder. Several of his plays were considered scandalous to many of his era, when European theater was required to model strict mores of family life and propriety. Ibsen’s work examined the realities that lay behind many façades, revealing much that was disquieting to many contemporaries. It utilized a critical eye and free inquiry into the conditions of life and issues of morality.
