Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully written The author portrayed women in Nora's era realistically. In a way, most people may find the behaviour of her husband appalling; however, it is true. It did happen and it may still happen. In modern society, we would like to think that we have evolved socially, but it still exists. I found this book excellent. Take a look at the movie Runaway Bride; Julia Robert's character changed her preference of eggs with each new fiancee, like the character Nora does with her interests. :) Go read it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DEGRADING I found this book degrading to all women. My female classmates along with myself could not stand the way Torvald acted towards his wife. All the little names he called Nora were not cute, they were degrading.I'll never read this play ever again. It made me furious to have to read a play like this. I was disappointed.

About the Author

Henrik Ibsen, poet and playwright was born in Skein, Norway, in 1828. His creative work spanned 50 years, from 1849-1899, and included 25 plays and numerous poems. During his middle, romantic period (1840-1875), Ibsen wrote two important dramatic poems, Brand and Peer Gynt, while the period from 1875-1899 saw the creation of 11 realistic plays with contemporary settings, the most famous of which are A Doll's House, Ghosts, Hedda Gabler, and The Wild Duck. Henrik Ibsen died in Christiania (now Oslo), Norway in 1906.

Employee Review

One of the best known, most frequently performed of modern plays, this classic demonstrates the author's pioneering, modern and realistic drama. Nora is a trapped housewife whose strength and determinism breaks through the stereotypical surface materialism and absent-mindedness of her era. Social conformity and the human struggle are two of the many social themes appearing ahead of their time. Ibsen's characters are necessarily shallow, but readers will be impelled to read to the end. The setting and atmosphere are intriguing, and add layers to the world Ibsen represents. DIERDRE RATTIGAN SMITHBOOKS #579, MONTREAL
