  • Hedda Gabler - 350 words
    Hedda Gabler A Craving for Life In Henrik Isben's Hedda Gabler, he masterfully portrays the main character, Hedda, as neither a monster nor a saint[she] is simply a tragic character who is destroyed by the unharmonious and irreconcilable contrasts in her own character. Ultimately, this very unique character brings about her own demise. She is truly neither good nor evil, but in the end, this tragic character inevitably digs her own grave. Isben first expresses Hedda's emotional sterility by showing how she is unable to reciprocate in a relationship. Like a young child, she can only receive without knowing how to give in return. Without reciprocating she accepts George's love and support. Lat ...

    Hedda Gabler Courtney Jane Brown THTR-DSTP Hedda Gabler Ibsen once said, Find out who you are and become that person, because, To realize yourself is the highest goal a person can attain. Self realization was Ibsen's super-objective. To find self-realization was the main theme of his play Hedda Gabler.

    Hedda Gabler Throughout Hedda Gabler my perception of Hedda was influenced by many of the theatre languages. From the costumes she wore, the props she used, and the lighting that illuminated the stage, all of the languages had an enormous effect on my perception of Hedda. The first language that influenced my perception of her character was her costumes. The theatre language that caught my eye first was the use of Hedda's costumes. As the play began she was wearing a bright elegant gown; without using the knowledge I already had about her from reading the play, this to me demonstrated her attempt to appear sane and in control of her life. As the scenes changed, so did her costumes; she began ...

  • Hedda Gabler By Ibsen - 1,012 words
    Hedda Gabler By Ibsen Henrik Ibsens Hedda Gabler is not truly indicative of his vast body of work: the protagonist is female and the play is a character study. Oddly enough, though, Hedda does not evolve or progress throughout the entirety of the work. Rather, she remains a cold and manipulative woman. When this fact is realized, the only task is discovering why Hedda continues as a flat character who is restrained from gaining the status of a hero. Truthfully, there are many variables that shape Heddas life. Nonetheless, two factors in particular stand outher father, General Gabler, and the repressive, masculine society of the era. Although Ibsen does not directly address these issues, he s ...

  • Hedda Gabler By Ibsen - 635 words
    Hedda Gabler By Ibsen Brack strikes as a very immoral man from the very beginning, due to the aplenty advances he made towards Hedda. He had always subtlety hinted that he thought that Hedda might like "a new responsibility" and most importantly, that he will "fight for the end, for the "triangle" to be "fortified and defended by mutual consent." To flirt with an unwed lady is one thing. But to be thoroughly suggestive of certain immoral acts to a legally wed lady would seem to be a moral crime. A crime, which would deem Brack as an immoral judge, which is juxtaposition in the phrase itself. The depraved misdeed was too much to expect from a judge, much less to say the way that he had insinu ...

    Hedda Gabler By Ibsen Henrik Ibsen portrays a microcosm of nineteenth century Norwegian society in his play Hedda Gabler. Hedda, the protagonist, exhibits a mixture of masculine and feminine traits due to her unique upbringing under General Gabler and the social mores imposed upon her. However, although this society venerates General Gabler because of his military status, his daughter Hedda is not tolerated due to her non-conformity to the accepted gender stereotypes. Hedda's gender-inverted marriage to Jorgan Tesman, her desire for power and her use of General Gabler's pistols are unacceptable in her society and motif of "One doesn't do such a thing!" that is alluded to during the play and ...
