Fun Fact
- In 1876 Victor Kieler developed tuberculosis and his doctor advised a stay in a more southerly climate. Unknown to her husband, Laura Kieler borrowed money to finance this, but gradually got into such trouble with her creditors that, like Nora, she committed forgery in order to get hold of some money.
The affair ended in tragedy as the forgery was discovered, her husband demanded a divorce, her children were taken away from her, and the strain on her nerves led to her being committed to a mental hospital for a time. Ibsen knew about all this when he was working on A Doll`s House.
"You have never loved me. You have only thought it pleasant to be in love with me" (Nora, Act III, 63).
The Sacrificial role of women

Nora's definition of Freedom
The letters
"Yes - some day, perhaps, after many years, when I am no longer as pretty as I am now. Don't laugh at me! I mean, of course, when Torvald is no longer as devoted to me as he is now; when my dancing and dressing-up and reciting have palled on him then it may be a good thing to have something in reserve" (Nora, Act I).
"How kind you are, Nora, to be so anxious to help me! It is doubly kind of you, for you know so little of the burdens and troubles of life" (Christine, Act I, 11).
"From this moment happiness is not the question; all that concerns us is to save the remains, the fragments, the appearance" (Torvald, Act III, ).
