View Full Version : Assignment on the Wild Duck

11-12-2007, 06:27 AM
Hello all,

I'm currently in my last year of IB higher level english and I have been set a task to write a creative piece about some aspect of The Wild Duck. After reading over the play a couple times, I have decided on what I believe could be a potentially strong piece of work. I decided to write a reflection from the point of the doctor Relling (Gregers opposite half) about the sudden death of Hedvig. As the criteria for the assignment requires, I intend to write from Relling's point of view, in his voice and personality, and focus on the themes of the play and their meaning (such as lies, truths, blindness, etc.) by reflecting on how Hedvig happened to kill herself under Relling's application of the "life illusion" in the Ekdal household. Any advice/opinions on this task I'm getting into would be greatly appreciated!
