My name is Torey Brown and I am a senior of E.E. Smith High School. I have been attending this school for three years now and it is a one in a lifetime experience. Track and Field is the sport I Play. After I graduate I plan to master in Physical Therapy at the University of Miami. I was born March 7, 1995, and I am proud to be a Pisces. Also, I am Gullah Geechee, which is an African American slave culture as well as a different language in South Carolina.
In the play, "A Doll's House" by Henrik Ibsen, nineteenth century women were unable to be independent in their life. Nora, Torvald Helmer's wife, borrows money from Krogstad to save her husband's life. Without Torvald knowing of this, Nora has kept this a secret from everyone. Then, suddenly Krogstad threatens to blackmail her if she doesn't help him get his job back. Lastly, this causes a disturbance in Nora and Torvald's relationship as Nora tries to save it.
The play A Doll's House by Henrik Ibsen was written in 1879 while Ibsen was in Rome and Amalfi, Italy. This was during the time of revolution in Europe. This play is particularly based off of an event that happened in Ibsen's life. Ibsen wanted to write a realistic drama play to show others the reality of life. This play is to performed to give a visual view of how a person's marriage really is and not of what the outside world may view

I chose this product as a representation of Nora. This product basically gives an idea to the observer or reader of the type relationship in the story. Also, it foreshadows the story.

For my product, the bird cage represents Torvald's and Nora's marriage. Also, the Barbie doll represents Nora. Nora is trapped in the bird cage as she feels trapped in her marriage. This product is to display the lack of freedom Nora has in her relationship with Torvald. It describes what Torvald thinks of Nora, helpless and clueless.
Wrap up
From this play, I've learned that you can't always judge a person without knowing the full story. For instance, I thought Nora was selfish and didn't care about Torvald based from the opening scene of Act 1. The reason being, Nora was being a spendthrift in the relationship. Also, because she had to lie to Torvald about eating the Macaroons. Another, example is when Nora borrows money from Krogstad, but lied to Torvald telling him that it came from her father. In the end, it turns out that Nora really did care about Torvald because she borrowed the money to save Torvald's life.
For my product, I will be using a bird cage with a Barbie doll in it to represent Nora. This product is to show how trapped she truly felt in a relationship with only room to breathe.
Research paper
Man vs. Society: In the play, Krogstad is morally corrupted as Dr. Rank and Torvald describes him. The reason being because he forged another man's signature which is a crime. Therefore, everyone is judging him and do not want to hire him because of his previous crime. Also, he is known as morally cripple.
