Hedda Gabler is a play written by Henrik Ibsen. It is one of the author's most successful and well-known works and is a realistic and psychological portrait of high society at the end of the 19th century. It is one of the most important works of European theatrical literature

The book, set in a villa in Kristiania (Oslo, today), tells the story of Hedda Gabler. This 29-year-old aristocrat is the daughter of General Gabler and has just married Jørgen Tesman, but she does not love him.

His life is boring and ridiculous and represents the decadent lifestyle of the late 19th century. The cult of the beauty of the young woman and her aestheticism represents the antithesis of the values ​​of the petty bourgeoisie and is contrary to decency and justice.

First premiered in Munich, it is still widely performed around the world today.

Edmund Gosse and William Archer's translation has been used for this digital edition of the book Hedda Gabler
