Hedda Gabler/YMMV

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • Magnificent Bastard: Hedda, who's incredibly beautiful, and manipulates every single person in the play without them realising, except for Brack who understands what Hedda's doing straight away, mostly because they are very similar.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Hedda loses much of the reader's sympathy after she pretends to love Tesman. It's also fairly hard to feel sympathy for her suicide because she's just killed her baby.
  • What an Idiot!: Tesman; At the end of the play, instead of helping his wife who's just shot herself or going to check on her, he simply stands in one spot and wails.
