A Doll's House, written two years after The Pillars of Society, was the first of Ibsen's plays to create a sensation and is now perhaps his most famous play, and required reading in many secondary schools and universities. The play was highly controversial when first published, as it is sharply critical of 19th Century marriage norms. It follows the formula of well-made play up until the final act, when it breaks convention by ending with a discussion, not an unravelling. It is often called the first true feminist play, although Ibsen denied this. From Wikipedia

it was a great disappointment and a waist of time, shallow and unrealistic for that time period. definitely an agenda for the liberal mindset against marriage and family. stupid book

I had always wanted to read this play ...a great classic of course and I loved the story. The narration and the players were in the spirit of an amateur dramatics company, enjoyable but a little amusing too. We may think this unrealistic for the time it was written in but the Norwegians have always been liberal and practical in their way of thinking. I found it an interesting insight into the 1800's in Norway. It made me think about the relationship between a man and his wife and how layered and subtle this is . ..who has the real control and power?

The narration is very moving. It feels quite real in front of your eyes.
