Nora Helmers has recently placed herself at considerable financial risk so that her husband, the overbearing Torvald, could recuperate from an illness. Torvald thinks Nora careless and childlike-his doll-and proves unable to comprehend the depth of her affection and sacrifice. Nora comes to see her marriage for what it is and will contemplate the unthinkable. A Doll's House was first staged in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1879. The play is important for it's criticism of 19th century marriage norms-the first seeds of feminism. Sayre Street Books offers the world's greatest literature in easy to navigate, beautifully designed digital editions.
