A Doll’s house By Henrik Ibsen

A Doll’s house was a three-act-play written by Henrik Ibsen, in the year 1879. The characters were Nora, Torvald Helmer, Krogstad, Mrs. Linde, Dr. Rank and children, and Anne Marie. The three-act-play took place in The Royal Theatre, Copenhagen, Denmark. The original language was Norwegian. “A Doll House” title was then called Et dukehjem but then someone interpreted it into this one. The play came to light on 21st December, 1879. “The whole play is about the awakening of a middle-class wife and mother”, say some. While the others say, “Such plays are needed to be seen at regular intervals”. He always intents the sorts of Naturalistic, realistic, problem play, modern tragedy and so on. The background seems a house. It is a play based on women and most of it seems to be pertaining to the thought of men against women that they’re weak. Ibsen opposed it by this very play. The female protagonist of this play is Nora.

When there were no televisions the news was spread by the mouths of the people, the entertainment things were presented on stage. A Doll’s House was one of the kinds. It was esteemed by all. In the political wise, it brought changes in the society too! No one can just believe and digest that such a small creation can bring a lot of changes that it became the seeds which were sown in the hearts and minds of people, esp. women who reacted accordingly to get the Women Rights.

Henrik Johan Ibsen was born in 1828, on 28th March, Grenland, United States. He passed away on 23rd May, 1906, in Norway. He was a well-known writer by occupation. His genre was naturalism and realism. His most remarkable works were:

  • Peer Gynt.
  • A Doll’s House.
  • Ghosts.
  • An Enemy of the People.

  • Hedda Gabler.

Ibsen was born in a merchant family. The family used to ship timber. He once wrote to a antagonist named George Brandes that why the people always fought because even his parents were from Skein yet they loved each other a lot, in his young age only.

It makes a facial expression that everyone has to love the play or read about it in the near future.
