Josh Bourne Fr. Tollini Performance and Culture 13 26 April 2006 A Doll’s House A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen is appropriately titled because of Nora Helmer’s situation. She is the wife of Torvald Helmer, an over-controlling, egotistical, self-proud, money-loving work-a-holic who has no appreciation for what his wife has to offer. He only sees her as her father once did, a child, or doll in a grown woman’s body. After borrowing money to save her husband from illness, it is Nils Krogstad, a money- lendering man whom Torvald is considering firing because of forging a signature. However, he is not the only one who didn’t play by the rules. It was discovered by Krogstad that Nora has forged her father’s signature in order to get the money. Krogstad threatens to reveal her wrongdoing if she doesn’t convince Torvald not to fire him. Her attempt proves to be unsuccessful since Torvald once again sees through his wife, only taking her to be a child with no merit in the adult world.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
