Nora plays with Helmer, and behaves as a Victorian woman would, using feminine endings to words such as "sweetly" and at the beginning of Nora's conversation with Mrs. Linde, she is polite, and sympathises with her "No, it was bad of me Kristine. You poor woman, you've gone through so much." Ibsen uses commas and short sentences to break up the passage and emphasise that Nora is genuine, in contrast to her long, complex sentences when she talks only of herself "Kristine, do believe me, I meant so often to write to you then, but I kept putting it off and something always got in the way."

As an actor using Stanislavski's system, how would you use his ideas on 'imagination', 'units and objectives' and 'emotion mem5 star(s)
The easier it is for the actor to use their 'imagination', the richer their characterizations will be when preparing for and acting a role. The 'imagination' should be focused and based on observations the actor has made so it will not wonder and become unrealistic. The 'imagination' fills in the blanks that the author has missed and so they need to be very precise and use their 'imagination' to provide extra detail to what has happened to the character not only on stage, but before and after as well.

After watching my performance I also realised that some sentences that I said were not said in the right tone that was fitting to the intensity of the scene I felt that I almost threw always some of my lines.
