Arthur WilsonPage 1071100 What do you consider to be the impact of the ending of A dolls House on the audience The ending has a huge impact on the audience I think that some would regard the ending as a surprise By the end all the control and power of the relationship is clearly in Noras hands and both the audience and Torvald know this By the time Torvald has read the letter and been relieved by the returning of the IOU the audience start to see how weak he actually is and how he starts clutching on to straws Having initially been disgusted by Nora and appalled at what she had done he then returns to normal having found out that everything will be fine He once again treats her like his doll his plaything from now on itll be different Playtime is over Now the time has come for education He just brushes off everything she had just said about how she had felt like she had just been passed from one man to another like a doll from her father to her husband He chooses to ignore the cracks in his marriage in the hope that they will disappear All this is clear to the audience because for once Nora doesnt just play along with the game instead she is constantly questioning him From the very beginning with the macaroons up until the end Torvald has been losing control over Nora The audience can see this clearly when he starts to get angry Youre out of your mind You cant do this I forbid you The realisation that he is losing control has hit him and he resorts to ordering her about in the hope that she will be a good wife and do as she is told He also resorts to accusing her of being mad purely because he cant justify what she is doing in his own
