For this course work I have chosen to do a letter written by Doctor Rank and directed to Nora.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Dear Nora, I am so sorry to be writing this letter in such a rush, but I know that you understand that I have not got all the time in the world any more. It is so hard to think that soon, I will not be here, I will not be able to see you or Torvald again, and that I will die. I can not understand why god has sent this punishment upon my family, but most terrible of all, me. I am a doctor, and I have worked all my life to save people, and now that I am in misery, suffering and dying alone, nobody on the face of earth is capable of saving me. But still I will never regret my whole life. Everything I did was great, I only regret the things I never had the chance to experience, love. I think you are one of the people who know me better than any one, and I have always been a lonely man. ...read more.

Middle

Because you have replaced my own. You game me a place on your table, a chair in the studio, and a piece of your hearts. This is why I want you, Nora, to have my money. I would not want anyone else to keep it. Use it for the kids, but yourself a dress, or make Torvald a very nice dinner, fix anything that needs to be fixed in your house, in your relationship. That is my last wish. I need you to know how much I appreciate you, and now that I am gone, this is the only way I have found to let you know how much you really mean to me. I have an enormous respect for you, and for Torvald, he has been there fore me whenever I have needed him to, he has stretched his hand in times of trouble, so I have never ever dreamed of hurting or offending him. Nor have I ever wanted to feel what I have felt all this time for you. ...read more.

Conclusion

I think it is the right thing to do, and I do not think it is not too much to ask for. Please do not deny me my last wish, it is wrong and unnecessary to do that to a dying man. Let me go in peace, and I will be waiting for you in heaven my dear Nora. Yours Faithfully Rank Abstract For this course work I have chosen to do a letter written by Doctor Rank and directed to Nora. This letter has the simple purpose to explain what has been happening in the last section of the play, when he is going to die, and he wants Nora to know and understand the situation he is going through. So that when she sees that in his will all this fortune has been inherited by her and Torvald, she will not be surprised. This letter also intends to put Doctor's Rank dying wish in paper, as in a way to make sure that it will be fulfilled, due to the fact that he has a lot of respect and trust towards Nora and Torvald.

    Nora does not find herself in this kind of claustrophobia. The conflict in A Dolls House is due to the way characters, specifically Nora, hide their true selves from each other and society. The claustrophobia and feeling of imprisonment, therefore, is as much internal as external.
