About the Title

Hedda Gaber is the play's protagonist and the point of intersection in the lives of its various characters: the action revolves around her successful manipulation of friends, family, and former lovers. Ibsen's decision to use Hedda's maiden name reflects her independence and distances her from her well-meaning but oblivious husband.
