    Doll House By Henrik Ibsen Many of our choices and the things one does in a lifetime can be directly based on what society perceives to be proper. The choices one makes based on societys views, may sometimes have no logic to support them. These choices are sometimes chosen because society would look down upon the person making the"wrong" decision. The values and morals upheld by a society may directly affect how one acts. This is held true for the character Nora in Henrik Ibsens play "A Doll House". Nora is the 19th century middle class wife of Torvald Helmer. She is a woman who is devoted to her husband and family.

  • Dolls House By Henrik Ibsen - 408 words
    DollS House By Henrik Ibsen In a Doll's House, Henrik Ibsen reveals how society and authority hinders the development of individuality. By examining how Nora's father treated her, the way Nora's husband talked to her, a woman's social expectations, and the social status of women, Ibsen sets forth the image of a stiffed woman, trapped in an unhappy marriage. Nora's father treated her as if she was just a little play doll. He belittled her and treated Nora like a baby. Referencing to her father, Nora illustrates this by saying, " . . . He called me his little doll, and he played with me just the way I played with my dolls. Then I came to live in your house . . . I was passed from Papa's hands ...

  • Henrik Ibsens A Doll House - 1,257 words
    Henrik Ibsen's A Doll House It is our human spirit that separates us from animals. Because animals lack a spirit of their own, they have no conscience to guide them with the inner sense of right and wrong. T.C. Boyle's "Carnal Knowledge" portrays two people, Jim and Alena, who live as if they lack a human spirit. Like animals, they act as they please, satisfying their own wants with no sense of morality. From Jim's lies of being a vegan to Alena's hatred towards mankind, we see an underlying theme. This theme is that a human being without spiritual depth and moral reasoning becomes just meat. Being the first-person narrator, Jim tells the reader about himself and eventually exposes what an a ...

  • A Dolls House - 760 words
    A Doll's House The following essay will critically analyse a passage from the play A Dolls House by Henrik Ibsen. Between the pages 222 and 225 there seems to be shift in the plot, as Nora takes a different attitude towards her and Helmer's relationship. All of a sudden instead of trying to preserve it, she wishes to leave the house. It could be argued that her radical change in mind is not irrational or unprovoked. Before she starts getting changed to leave, Helmer had just finished forgiving her, for he had received and read Krogstad's second letter which included the forged document, but prior to this he had basically told her that he could no longer love her: Helmer: ...Oh, to think that ...

  • A Dolls House - 855 words
    A Doll's House Becoming Independent Throughout A Dolls House, Henrik Ibsen illustrates through an intriguing story how a once infantile-like woman gains independence and a life of her own. Ibsen creates a naturalistic drama that demonstrates how on the outside Nora and Torvald seam to have it all, but in reality their life together is empty. Instead of meaningful discussions, Torvald uses degrading pet names and meaningless talk to relate to Nora. Continuing to treat Nora like a pampered yet unimportant pet, Torvald thoroughly demonstrates how men of his era treat women as insignificant items to be possessed and shown off. While the Helmer household may have the appearance of being sociably ...

Two authors from that time period wrote two separate but very similar pieces of literature. Henrik Ibsen wrote the play A Doll's House, and Thomas Hardy wrote Tess of the D'Urbervilles.

Ibsen uses Torvald, to depict a world where men choose to follow their minds in place of their hearts. Ibsen has Torvald believe that he is truly in love with ...
