really liked it

When a woman is bored with her husband and her life, desires a more affluent life style, yearns for power, freedom and excitment, what does she do? With Hedda, it's jealously, manipulation, and meanness that result in two deaths, while her husband, the academic, never sees it coming on. Is she an idealistic heroine fighting society, a victim of circumstances, a feminist, or a manipulative villain? Maybe a bit of all four, plus a little bit of stupidity.
