4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for any student, 22 Feb 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Hedda Gabler (Student Editions) (Paperback)
As a student myself, I rate this edition of Ibsen's, "Hedda Gabler" very highly due to its great layout and invaluable commentary. The play itself is gripping, written in a comic style, although essentially a tragedy. For me, the play really came to life after reading the accompanying commentary. Details about all the characters' backgrounds and Ibsen's background help really put the play into context.
I truly recommend this edition to any student who might wish to study the play. I also highly recommend the play in general, as Ibsen's message is powerful in realising the social constraints people were faced with in the late 1800's (does this message still ring true today??).

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant production, 10 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I originally bought this cd in order to understand the story as I was auditioning for a part in a local production. It is superb. All the cast are top notch and convey the story of Hedda's great disappointments with her marriage and lot in life. Michael Maloney as her husband is very amusing and you could well understand how his annoying tone and lack of understanding of his wife' frustrations would lead her to do the desperate things she does. For any student of theatre and Ibsen's work this translation is a winner!

5.0 out of 5 stars But people don't do that sort of thing...!, 7 Jan 2010

This review is from: Hedda Gabler (Student Editions) (Paperback)
The accompanying notes are great for students studying Ibsen. It's not about "what" the characters are saying, as much as what they are "thinking" while they're saying it!. I loved reading this play - couldn't put it down!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, 5 Feb 2011
I love this book even though I haven't finished reading it but I was told about this play and Amazon came to my rescue! The price was too good to miss and plus the book is very handy to put into your handbag.
