When audiences first saw A Doll’s House on stage, they were shocked that Nora leaves her husband at the end of the play. Today, many audiences are shocked when they realize that Nora also abandons her children at the end of the play. The author of the play, however, seems to support the idea that Nora should leave her children with her husband. What in suggests to you that Ibsen feels Nora must leave her children behind in order to be a better person and have the independence that she needs to grow as a woman and a person?
When you quote from the play, you will need to document where you find the quotation. For a prose play (such as A Doll’s House), provide the page number followed by the act (as a Roman numeral) and scene number, if any.
