    2. I have hated Ibsen for the last 15 years of my life I was a grad student in an acting program and had to read Ghosts I found it melodramatic, heavy handed and just plain ludicrous It reminded me of a creaky old mansion lousy with mould and damp Even acting in the Lady from the Sea which I liked could not make me change my negative opinion of this master of sturm und drung But being a student of the theatre in general and great playwrights in particular I knew I would one day have to read some I [...]

    3. I m going to see the national theatre stream of Hedda Gabler in March, and I ve been aware of the play for a while I really enjoyed all three plays in this edition Ibsen definitely has a style, all three plays hinge on the truth about a particular individual but their endings are very different Often unsatisfying actually, but always poignant.

    4. I really enjoyed this play which isn t a surprise because I love most of Ibsen s work He is so good at stripping away the veneer and letting you know that he is warming you up to a tragedy You are left to wonder who it involves until later in the play but you can see the train wreck coming.

    5. Originally published on my blog here and here in June 2001.The Pillars of the CommunityAlso known in English as The Pillars of Society, this play is really the start of the series of plays with social messages which so scandalised nineteenth century Europe It is a vicious attack on the complacent hypocrisy of Norwegian small town society, especially on the it couldn t happen here attitude taken towards the scandals of the wider world.Karsten Bernick runs a shipping firm in a coastal town, an imp [...]

    6. Published 1950 and still readable in 2018, which puts Ms Fermor s first volume of Ibsen translations ahead of a number of other Penguin Classics from the same era A very good place to start on your journey through the great man s output Ibsen remains the first Nineteenth Century dramatist you should look at and these are three of his most affecting Very strongly recommended.

    7. I did not read the first play, The Pillars of the Community The Wild Duck I rate three stars Hedda Gabler gets 3.5.

    8. Hedda Gabler is the fast paced story of an unhappily married young woman, whose cunning and manipulation earn her a detestable reputation within the family Married to J rgen Tesman, a scholar in the history of civilisation, Hedda makes her misery known by refusing to indulge in her husband s desires Desperate to earn the satisfaction of his wife, however, J rgen continually attempts to please Hedda, but fails to evoke any desirable effects This role reversal of husband and wife is exquisitely po [...]

    9. THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS I LOVE Hedda Gabler, and I love Henrik Ibsen He was so ahead of his time, especially with Hedda Gabler even so, in my opinion, than A Doll s House, a play that I also love There is so much to say about this particular story, and I think this would be a great story for a book club Why was Hedda so bent on destroying her own life Yes, she was bored with her marriage, but I think her boredom and a serious case of depression goes WAY back for her The idea of death was [...]

    10. Some thing I studied for my first year of English Literature I found it one of the best plays on the reading list that included Shakespeare s twelfth night and Pinter s The Caretaker Perhaps one of the most prominent points of the play is the portrayal of women and that of social acceptability The main character is quite complex and I would argue is neither good or bad, the combination leaving the audience with mixed emotions I would describe it as a must read and a play that I would very much l [...]

    11. This is one of those books that not many read for fun I am one of them I came across this book when I had to teach it for the iGCSE exams The translation seems to maintain the dark humor and wit that Ibsen intended in his original work The protagonist is detestable and pitiful it is also someone who you want to root for at the same time In the end, the protagonist is paradoxically a winner and a loser.

    12. This was playwriting homework and I only actually read the last play Hedda Gabler It was ok, reading plays loses some of their appeal I think they are meant to be seen The characters portrayed are such parodies of the time that I struggled to take anything seriously I didn t really care that Hedda killed a man and then herself I was actually interested in the scientific papers lol.

    13. Timeless classic of modern play act structure Hedda is not a villian or destructive her killing time is laugh out loud satire, intelligent and very entertaining Ibsen s form and content are playwriting perfection How could anyone miss the point and take it too seriously This isn t tragedy It is social commentary at its best and most balanced I saw A Doll s House performed in college and would love to see Hedda Gabler

    14. A Victorian era play about a woman, Hedda Gabler, who was raised around the army by her father, a general, and was no stranger to guns, horses and excitement Hedda finds no space to live in a world with certain expectations of a lady, and tries desperately to find freedom, life and meaning in the mundane existence she now occupies I love a story that can pull off an unhappy ending well.

    15. Henrik Ibsen s plays are socially aware drama revealing middle class issues that people avoided talking about As you might expect from issues that people avoid talking about they are depressing, so that is why I put ok.

    16. Pillars of the community good start, but very gentle denouementThe Wild Duck very confusedHedda Gabler strong whole, up to the end about power and powerlessness, boredom, nihilism, hopelessness

    17. Hmmm I haven t read drama in a long time and perhaps I might enjoy Hedda Gabler on the stage But really it was just evil woman destroys everyone s life and then kills herself Oh well it was dramatic I can say that.

    18. Reading this in high school I was fascinated by Hedda Gabler s character, her defiance and repressed anger Still love this play.

    19. Re visted Hedda Gabler one of my favorite Ibsen Plays regarding a conflict for a passion, social conformity and self destruction Terrific twists of revealing the truth.

    20. I could never get into Ibsen s work I don t necessarily find his work bad, but I personally don t enjoy it much.
