Jealousy of Thea and Lovborg Destroys ‘child’ that is the manuscript as a substitute as getting rid of her own possible child - Manuscript meaning could be as Lovborg says, a masterpiece that could be revolutionary for the time period, supposed to be about the future - Also, could be not as great as everyone thinks, Lovborg is well-known to exaggerate and romanticize many things Act IV - Fast paced - No one really mourns the death of Rina; everyone is just relieved that she is no longer suffering - Hedda saying that her death was ‘calm’ echoes her giving the gun to Lovborg so he can have a ‘beautiful death’ and her admiration for one - There is no difference between the dead and the living; no respect is payed to the dead and everyone only cares about those alive - George is too self-involved to care if Hedda is pregnant or not - Any initial attraction between Hedda and George is now gone - Even when she shoots herself in the head in the parlor, George just brushes the noise off as Hedda just ‘playing with her pistols again’ - Last lines of the play said by Brack are lines of Heddas - Suicide is thought to be a denial of life an idea of escape from a social trap a notion of honour and truth; kills herself with her father the generals pistol - If she is pregnant, she is essentially killing herself and her child -

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
