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.

The setting and atmosphere are intriguing, and add layers to the world Ibsen represents. DIERDRE RATTIGANSMITHBOOKS #579, MONTREAL
