When A Doll's House was first published in 1879 it created a sensation. The play follows the ordinary life of a housewife. Gradually the tensions within her marriage become clear and build to a final, stunning action. The play is widely studied because of its sharp critique of 19th century marriage norms, and its feminist tendencies.

This play follows Nora and her home life, looking at the relationship she has with her husband, Torvald. The play demonstrates how Nora is tied to being at home, called animal names by Torvald, and treated as a treasure to be admired. As a play, the book can only demonstrate the character traits through dialogue, but it's clear how Nora is getting tired of being looked down upon and restricted from what she can do with her life.

In an alternative version, Nora changes her mind and stays at home.

Wow, it quite impressed me. Nowadays they would have made a 180-series TV production out of it...

Qué obra maestra por Dios, no hay lugar para frivolidades absurdas de concretar. Hay que leerlo y punto. ( )

I was quite pleased with this play. I had no idea what to expect going in, but it was enjoyable. There were a ton of funny and cringy moments that made me fall for this story. I think the ending left something to be desired but overall, this was really good. ( )
