Analysis Of A Doll House And A Doll's House

Decent Essays

At the beginning of this semester we were assigned to write about a significant experience in our life. In my writing sample I focused on writing about my college experience, and how it is an opportunity to grow as an individual. This transition of being a kid, to living out on your own is a very significant one. We are finally given this freedom that we longed for as a youngster, however, it doesn’t take long for us to realize that this freedom comes with a price. The decisions we make now, will shape the rest of our future, and every scenario that is thrown at us is just another learning experience to help cultivate who we want to be. Overall, the main point in my writing sample is that growing up is a beautiful, and yet an exhilarating experience that we should all look forward to. In both of the plays, A Doll House and A Cat On a Hot Tin Roof, the characters of Nora and Margret relate to the concepts mentioned in my writing sample. Nora is trying to figure out what she wants out of life, and who she wants to be. Margret, on the other hand, is clear about where she stands, but is constantly thrown many obstacles to discourage her on achieving what she desires. Therefore, both of their conflicts relate to the idea of growing up. Nora, represents the doll in the play A Doll House. She is influenced by her husband Torvald, into behaving the way that he wants her to. She is constantly viewed as this naïve child, who doesn’t know what it’s like to be a “real adult”.
