** Actually may not have read like this to the audience of the time- [[spoiler: foetal rights was not really a debate that was going on, in the modern sense. Pregnant suicides were surprisingly common and usually ''were'' sympathetic in fiction (though admittedly Hedda is hardly typical of the case. See Theatre/AnInspectorCalls for how this was treated at the time]]

Added DiffLines:

* IAmNotShazam: The title character is (legally) named "Hedda ''Tesman''", not Hedda Gabler. Gabler was her maiden name, and it serves as a symbol of her pre-marriage identity.

* MoralEventHorizon: Hedda loses much of the reader's sympathy after she pretends to love Tesman. It's also fairly hard to feel sympathy for her [[[spoiler: suicide because she's just ''killed her baby'']].
* WhatAnIdiot: Tesman; At the end of the play, instead of helping his wife who's [[spoiler:just shot herself]] or going to check on her, he simply stands in one spot and wails.
