    The Importance of Scenography in Miss Julie and A Doll's House

    4 star(s)

    Miss Julie takes place over a very short time interval in the kitchen of the Count's country house. Although the kitchen is the only room visible on stage, there are numerous references to the Count's rooms on the upper floor that allude to the social order ruling over the life of the inhabitants of the household. Thus, Strindberg's choice of the kitchen as the set of the play may be understood in terms of the hierarchy of social class found in society at the time.

    Nora Helmer vs. Miss Julie - the Role of Women being Degraded by Man

    3 star(s)

    This is the typical life of a standard wife at that time. Ibsen leads on the play, penetrating and unveiling Nora in a subtle way conveying a huge effect. At the beginning he illustrates Nora to be taking the most normal life, and Torvald to be the husband who goes to work, and earns the money to support his family - the usual patriarchal society of that time. Nora just seems to be like a doll, as perfect a wife and mother can be, and innocent too, as she is completely dependent on her husband.

  • The following essay will critically analyse a passage from the play "A Dolls House" by Henrik Ibsen.

    "conclusion that they both treat her the same. Furthermore, Helmer scolds her: Helmer: "...Why, what's this? Not in bed?" I remember my own father telling me this in similar words, when I was younger and was out of bed after my bed-time. Unfortunately, Nora, an adult, is still living through the same. Finally, the title "A Doll's House" suggest the situation Nora is living in, as she describes the to Helmer at one point. She is the doll that was previously owned by her father, but now she is married to Helmer and he controls her. The metaphore is obviously between Nora and a doll, but Henrik also portays this image through the scenery. The house is what Helmer provides for Nora and her children, like someone would for their dolls."
