Henrik Ibsen

Hedda Gabler (1890)

Hedda Gabler is a disillusioned wife who plans to advance her husband’s career by lying, cheating and stealing from his competitor to ensure his success. Driven by greed and ego, Hedda’s plan takes a dark and unexpected turn.

Hedda Gabler is married to George Tesman, a professional academic who’s eager to excel in his career. He finds unexpected competition from Eilert Lövborg, a writer and Hedda’s former lover. In an effort to improve George’s chances, she steals Eilert’s manuscript after he unintentionally leaves it out. This leads to a series of unfortunate events that drastically changes the outcome of their professional and personal lives.

Hedda Gabler is a cautionary tale about the dire consequences of cynicism and betrayal. Despite her intentions, Hedda’s behavior has a negative impact on everyone she loves, including herself. It’s a story full of twists and turns that comes to a shocking end.

With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Hedda Gabler is both modern and readable.
