** spoiler alert ** Ibsen writes in the tradition of realism adopted in the 1800s by French authors Flaubert and Balzac, and his protagonist, Nora, shares certain qualities with Emma Bovary. Nora's decision to leave her husband in the end of Act III was revolutionary for its era, yet, at the same time, it was the obvious conclusion for a marriage built on illusion, deception, and self-interest. This is a short, powerful play that can be read by most readers in 1-2 hours.
