There is no doubt about that Hedda wants to control others destiny in this play The environment in which she has brought up,where it is taught to always look down on upon others .Where there is no feeling of emotions but there is only the status which consider on the top .She wants to control others destiny .Hedda’s biggest issue is that her age has increased and the second one is that she can no longer maintain her status without finicial resoures .She is forced to marry Tesman so that she can maintain identity in her society. Instead of facing the society thinks of fighting to it.And that’s her the biggest tragic flaw .She realizes that nobody is like her but that is her the biggest mistake .She lives in a world that she has made with her own hands ,she has her own world .In her world ,there is no defeat and also defeat is not born .Despite this, she is a dishonest woman who cheats others She cheats her husband as well .she is not like Desdemona Who dies for the pleasure of her husband Rather she is a woman who dies for herself and lives for herself.

Although she can die yet cannot give herself to anyone .She is a ghost of victory that cannot be broken.She does not fit into any relationship within this entire play
Neither is she a good wife nor a good mother even though that she is not a good lover. She is dishonest with every relationship She wants to keep the every kind of relationship from other men but she avoids to keep physical relationship with men .But there is no honesty behind it rather it is trick that actually she doesn’t want to be a scandal .She is afraid of her locality, that is why she keeps away from herself like that physical relationships Whatever she does, she has no good intention behind it rather she has a motive.We can say that she is a very good businessman She does everything in which she sees an advantage .She does not do any work that does not benefit her .When she dies in this play, we see that fun is also for her benefit .In this entire play, we can see Hedda is as a honest woman whenever she picks up that” I have to do this thing and she does the same thing “.We can say that she is honest with just her work .And her job is only to destroy people and become herself happy .
As far as Hedda”s dishonesty is concerned ,it is very vivid , very lucid a common man can pick up it when he reads the whole play .She is dishonest by birth,cunning behave can be seen or found her DNA. Hedda”s mischief attitude is not only by internal forces but also external.External powers are very much bring about her tragic flaw, her society norms forces her do so.In short we can say that she is embodiment of dishonesty as well as cunning , she wants to be control others fate that is impossible in this world.
