Hedda Gabler has been selected here as possibly his most frequently performed play in the modern theater... Ibsen's influence on the whole course of modern drama may be indicated by the inclusion of his plays in the repertoire of every avant-garde theater of his day... Ibsen's revolutionary technique has now become firmly established... As to the social message of his plays, it should be remembered that his purpose was analytic not didactic. He was concerned with the exploration of social problems rather than with moral preaching" (Printing and the Mind of Man).Printing and the Mind of Man 375 (Hedda Gabler, etc).
