Loevborg is, at this point, confessing to Hedda Gabler that he has lost the manuscript of his
Hedda – suppose a man came home one morning, after a night of debauchery, and said to the mother of his child: ‘Look here. I’ve been wandering round all night. I’ve been to – such-and-such a place and such-a-such a place. And I had our child with me. I took him to – these places. And I’ve lost him. Just – lost him. God knows where he is or whose hands he’s fallen into’.
