Old but Modern Henrik Ibsens play A Dolls House was written well over 100 years ago It has been performed around the world and even had its ending changed for controversial reasons But it still proves to be a very well written play with a strong plot and modern struggles Reading of the play flows very well and it is easy to follow The age of the play should not prevent it from being studied in school English and Literature classes should study A Dolls House by Henrik Ibsen because it makes reading plays more enjoyable and understandable A Dolls House is a three-act play that takes place in the Helmer residence The two main characters are Torvald and Nora Helmer a married couple who have a strange and unhealthy relationship Other characters include Nils Krogstad the banker with a bad reputation and Kristine Linde an old friend of Noras who is looking for a job Nora Helmer is a spoiled lady She has been pampered all of her life first by her father and then by Torvald Although she tries very hard to focus on others she only cares about herself One example of this selfishness is shown in a conversation between Nora and Mrs Linde I wont be selfish today I must think only about your affairs today But theres just one thing I really must tell you Have you heard about the great stroke of luck weve had in the last few days Ibsen 1119 She doesnt even have to care for her own children she has a nanny who is with them all the time The only time she spends with them is for an occasional game where she plays the role of a playmate not a mother She rarely leaves the house mostly because she doesnt have to do errands In fact she really doesnt have many responsibilities at all Noras attitude makes a complete turnaround in the end
