It is virtually impossible to get that mystical combination of crispy skin, tender meat and just enough fat to make things interesting just by roasting a bird in an oven. Hjalmar's father makes a living doing odd copying jobs for Werle. Mastering these birds will make you a more competent carnivore. Werle's illness.

Ekdal was an army officer and partner to Werle until a forestry scandal sent him to prison over some scandal. The Ekdals initially appear to be living a life of cozy domesticity. Having left school to protect her eyes, she spends much of her time in the garret with the duck and the treasures of an old sea captain. Gina begs him to reconsider, suggesting that with all his time consumed he will not be able to work on his invention. Background[ edit ] The model of the character Hedvig was a German girl Ibsen met when he was completing the play in Gossensass in the summer of Before the play starts, Gregers worked on a plant in the mountains, and is accused by Relling present there as wellof "intriguing" with the local serfs actually commoners.

The wild duck book

Another man has been disgraced and imprisoned for a crime the elder Werle committed. Hialmar tears the birthday letter in half and places it on the table.

Gina asks if he is still leaving. This method can be very good when you find out your duck legs are really underdone. Blinded by Gregers' insistence on absolute truth, he disavows the child. Optional Step No. Only too late do Hjalmar and Gregers realize that the absolute truth of the "ideal" is sometimes too much for the human heart to bear.

Once the members of the household have retired, Relling informs Gregers that Hedvig has certainly killed herself. You also need to decide where you want to be on the continuum of crispy skin to perfectly roasted meat.

During their conversation, Gregers hears shots in the attic, and the family explains that Old Ekdal entertains himself by hunting rabbits and birds in the loft, and Hjalmar often joins in the hunts. Relling sneers at the notion, and insists that Hjalmar will be a drunk within a year.

It is virtually impossible to get that mystical combination of crispy skin, tender meat and just enough fat to make things interesting just by roasting a bird in an oven.

The play ends with Relling and Gregers arguing again. They both dote on their daughter Hedvig. A dejected Hialmar excuses himself. While talking to Hedvig, she explains that Hjalmar keeps her from school because of her eyesight, but he has no time to tutor her, leaving the girl to escape into imaginary worlds through pictures she sees in books.

Providing Ibsen with his only family contact, she was deeply religious and tried to imbue her brother with her mystic beliefs. Gregers wonders how such a sportsman like the Old Ekdal can live in such a stuffy town. Gregers tries to calm the distraught Hedvig by suggesting that she sacrifice the wild duck for her father's happiness.

This family has achieved a tolerable modus vivendi by ignoring the skeletons among the secrets: Gregers' father may have impregnated his servant Gina then married her off to Hjalmar to legitimize the child, and Hjalmar's father has been disgraced and imprisoned for a crime the elder Werle committed.

A quick sear on the meat side and the skin side usually gets them close to where you want them to be. He also demands to manage the family's finances, which Gina has traditionally done. The smaller the bird, the hotter the oven. Gina begs him to reconsider, suggesting that with all his time consumed he will not be able to work on his invention.

Furthermore, while Hjalmar spends his days working on a wholly imaginary "invention", his wife is earning the household income. The activity helps Old Ekdal cling to his former life as a great hunter. Upon returning home, Hjalmar is aloof from his wife and daughter.

However, in this play the revelation of the truth is not a happy event because it rips up the foundation of the Ekdal family. I do this by holding the whole bird with tongs and continuously moving the bird around to get just the legs and wings, which need a little more time to cook.

And that is just a domestic example. Gregers suggests that Hedvig sacrifice the precious to prove her love for her father. Ibsen displays masterful use of irony: despite his dogmatic insistence on truth, Gregers never says what he thinks but only insinuates, and is never understood until the play reaches its climax.

In one of these Ibsen writes: The metaphor of the wild duck: when they are wounded they sink straight to the bottom, the stubborn devils, and hold on with their beaks -; but if you have a good dog, and the water is shallow, then – Hedvig as a wild duck – Gregers` experiences of children`s first, deepest pain.
