One of the best-known, most frequently performed of modern plays, A Doll's House richly displays the genius with which Henrik Ibsen pioneered modern, realistic prose drama. In the central character of Nora, Ibsen epitomized the human struggle against the humiliating constraints of social conformity. Nora's ultimate rejection of a smothering marriage and life in "a doll's house" shocked theatergoers of the late 1800s and opened new horizons for playwrights and their audiences.
But daring social themes are only one aspect of Ibsen's power as a dramatist. A Doll's House shows as well his gifts for creating realistic dialogue, a suspenseful flow of events and, above all, psychologically penetrating characterizations that make the struggles of his dramatic personages utterly convincing. Here is a deeply absorbing play as readable as it is eminently playable, reprinted from an authoritative translation.

I loved it
Omg this book was amazing . It was detailed extremely well .you can understand everything clearly . It is shut a plot twist . The ending is so sad, I nearly cried! I really thought they were meant to me , I really thought he world understand y she did what she did and that he would love her even more for it but what happens was, crazy . He truly loved her and I believe that she will some day fall in love with him again and realize she made a mistake because she did. She left the love of her life , her children,her home . How could someone do that .there is no way she truly felt that how can she have children with this man and not be in love with him!!!! All I know is that he truly loved or loves her and he always will!!💕😖😭😭💕
