A Doll's House, Paperback Book
3.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Nora Helmer, wife to Torvald and mother of three children, appears to enjoy living the live of a pampered, indulged child.

But as her economic dependence becomes brutally clear, Nora's acceptance of the status quo undergoes a profound change.

To the bewildered Torvald, himself caught in the tight web of a conservative society which demands that he exert strict control, Nora comes to see that the only possible true course of action is to leave the family home.

Review by

I'm currently working my way through a good deal of the theatrical canon and this play was up next. An intriguing study, still at times rooted in the melodramatic. I wasn't too impressed with the character of Nora, even after extensive discussion. She confused and baffled me the majority of the time, and not in a particularly good way.
