Great Literature Discussion: Hedda Gabler by Henryk Ibsen (Online)

February 3 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

This tumultuous and sweeping play centers around a woman contending with her own dissatisfaction, trapped with a husband and a home she does not want, at the turn of the 19th century. Considered by many a heroine as complex and tragic as to rival Hamlet, Hedda, finding her life in disarray after the sudden appearance of her husband’s rival—her former lover, Eilert—is consumed by jealousy toward Eilert’s new paramour, and triggers the chain of events that will lead to the play’s ultimate, shocking conclusion.

Literary works will be discussed based on what can be found in the text in order to enrich each other’s interpretation of the novel/novella. All are welcome to join and any edition or translation of the book under discussion can be used. Read the work in advance and be prepared to discuss the aspects of interest to you by referring to specific related text and reading it to the group. Moderated by Ethical NYC member Gunther Tielemans.
