first in a string investigating the tensions of relatives life. Written during the
Victorian era, the controversial play having a female protagonist seeking
individuality stirred up additional controversy than some of his other works. In
contrast to many dramas of Scandinavia for the reason that period which depicted the part of
women as the comforter, helper, and supporter of man, "A good Doll's House"
introduced woman as having her own uses and goals. The heroine, Nora Helmer,
progresses during the span of the play gradually to know that she must
discontinue the role of a doll and look for her individuality.
