When the door slams at the end of “A Doll’s House” by Henry Ibsen, No one would not believe the woman walking out of her house is the same one who appeared at the beginning of the play. The main character in this play is Nora. Nora goes through a complete transformation, changing from a child like and dependant woman to a self strong woman pushing to become independent. Ibsen portrays the roles of society in the Victorian times in this play. Throughout her whole life, Nora’s husband and father have always controlled her; she has never been able to be independent, and the treatment she receives is not equal to the males around her, and the people around her belittle and patronize her to no end. Finally it goes too far and Nora realizes

At first, Alexis thinks that her sister is going through another phase, but
When the doll strike to her eyes, the eye-level camera shot proved her curiosity. Nevertheless, the contrast set a different scene in the shop, whereas we feel different from the ordinary day for which the camera is shown from the low angle and eye- level for us, to discover what’s inside the shop with our heroine. Accordingly, the theme declares Horror, the tone, however for the first half is shown as a ravishing, sunshine and snowy day. Until we enter the shop where we see the dark shades and horrific tone. Another unexceptional disappointment for the audience would be for the lack of dialogues, but it covered the emptiness with background music where it made us feel the same as what the protagonist’s was feeling. Audiences also get her emotions through Alma’s movement and posture, proving children are easy to interpret by their dynamic
“The characterization in this story is very flat. I felt myself not really caring about anyone in these books. I didn't care who lived or died or who ended up with whom. I actually found most of the characters annoying and really only ended up powering through the whole trilogy because I hate to leave any book unfinished.” Is one of the bad reviews left on Amazon for The Nine Lives of Chloe King. I have never agreed more with a book review in my life as I agree with this one. The side characters are just that, they stay to the side. Lots of characters in this book could have been trashed without much destruction to the plot. The Nine Lives of Chloe King is a book about a girl turning 16 and discovering she is a part of an ancient dying race, not only that, but she also becomes the “true” leader by having nine lives. She must protect her people and try to create peace with their sworn enemy. I did not enjoy this book as much as I thought I would, even though it has a lot of meaning to my community, and humanity, even the

Every year she would get a new one for Christmas. She would love them and care for them as if they were a real baby: “Her new baby doll [...] It was so perfect and so small [...] She gently lifted the dimpled arms and then reverently placed them back. Slowly kissing the set painted mouth, she inhaled its new aroma [...]” (107). Cora Lee shows a young girl’s tendency to host a premature motherly love, for dolls. A problem arises from her love of these dolls when she begins to have real babies and treats them like her dolls. Cora Lee has the illusion that every baby that she has will not “grow up” and will always be a baby: “Why couldn’t they just stay like this--so soft and easy to care for? How she had loved them this way [...] Oh, for them to stay like this, [...] so there were no welfare offices to sit in all day or food stamp lines to stand on” (112). She has a lot of children, most who are no longer toddlers. She treats these children as a nuisance because they are not like her dolls she loved when she was young. Even though she is the one continuing to have children, she blames them for her poverty and lack of peace and quiet. She even implies that she does not love her older children as much as her newborns and she verbally abuses them: “‘Are you gonna be a dumb-ass too?’ she cooed at the baby. ‘No, not Mama’s baby. you’re not gonna be like them’” (113). She equates her children to a non-living baby doll;
Within his A Doll’s House, dramatist Henrik Ibsen chronicles the experiences of homemaker Nora Helmer as she transcends marital and maternal conventions in an effort to pursue her desire of self-realization. Whilst the depravity of antagonist Krogstad guides the play’s progression superficially, A Doll's House more abstractly explores the more covert nuances of bourgeois moral identity to compel themes of parenthood, corruption, and deceit. Accordingly, the strongly negative effects that parental debasement can wrought on children influences the chronologies of several of the play’s characters, thereby mobilizing an argument that moral wrongness can be inherited by a child in both dispositional and physical manifestations.
A wife should give herself to her husband for the right reason. Not get fully lost into a fake reality that causes you to be unhappy. Staying true to your own values and desires is what makes you...you. It is an identity that we create, and come to know. What
