    Doll House Feminist Criticism Through the eyes of society in the late 1800s, women were seen only as incompetent pretty little nothings. Keeping an eyeful watch on the house, starting their pre-destined act of motherhood, and becoming followers on the narrow path behind their husbands were the duties of a woman. In Ibsen's A Doll's House, he criticizes the sexist ways women were exploited in 1879, during a time known as The Victorian Era. Nora's character, in A Doll's House, represents the treatment that every woman was subjected to during The Victorian Era. As pure little play dolls for their husbands, women were treated in extremely childish ways. Such as the scene demonstrated in A Doll's ...

This play presents problems and that still appear in todays society. This play, one of Ibsens most popular works, was a simple classic story of womens liberati ...

She also slammed the door on everything else that happened in her past. It took time to evolve into a new person, but after she did she became a person who could not stand to be married to Torvald any longer. There is foreshadowing hinting that Nora will leave before the play is over (Magill). She says, "do you think that [the children] would forget their mother if she was gone for good?"(Kirszner 993) There are three minor characters in the play, but they each have a very important role.

  • 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 ...

  • In Isbens A Doll House As In Glaspells Trifles, The Women In The Play Are Seen As - 581 words
    In Isben's A Doll House as in Glaspell's Trifles, the women in the play are seen as subordinates to their male counterparts. The men believe that the women are not capable of making difficult decisions, or thinking for themselves. They also fail to give importance to the women's jobs as homemakers. In the case of Trifles, Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters discourse is seen as insignificant to the murder of Mr. Wright. In A Doll House, Nora chooses to abandon her duty as a wife and mother to find her own individuality. The men in both of the plays are responsible for their own fall, their false presumptions of women and patronizing ways are the main conflicts in the plays. The women in Trifles are se ...

  • Dolls House Act I - 503 words
    Doll`s House Act I A Doll House sets the scene for a disturbing commentary on the womans place in society at the time. Noras psychological makeup is one of an oppressive, emotionally depriving and possibly abusive father and an absent, neglectful mother.

Nora is suffering from a neurotic personality disorder. The Microsoft Encarta Encyclopedia, (1996), defines neurosis as "a slightly less impaired state than that of the psychotic, wherein the individual has lost touch with reality." Because of her being mistreated by men for so many years, b ...

  • Dolls House And Women Rights - 1,153 words
    Doll`s House And Women Rights "A Doll House" is no more about womens rights than Shakespeares Richard II is about the divine right of kings, or Ghosts about syphilis. . .. Its theme is the need of every individual to find out the kind of person he or she is and to strive to become that person." (Bloom 28) Ibsen portays this behavior in A Doll House through one of the main characters, Nora Helmer, by setting the scene in Norway in 1872. In the late 1800s, women did not play an important role in society at all. Their job was mainly to cook, clean, sew, take care of the children, and keep the house in order. They were treated as a material possession rather than a human being that could think a ...
