One of the main issue that is analyzed in the short story “A Doll House” by Henrik Ibsen is the relationship between Nora and her husband Torvald. We discussed how this story was controversial at the time it was published and whether or not it would still be surprising if we read it today. Many people at the time felt that the story was offensive because how the woman (Nora) in the story is shown as an independent woman. Throughout the story, Torvald threated his wife, Nora, as if she is a doll. However, as Nora finally stood up and left her husband at the end showed how women became independent.
From the story, we could see that women at the time was oppressed by men. This would be how feminist criticsm is used. From the story we can learn about gender inequality and all moral and political judgements at the time. Furtheremore, how the reader response at towards this story (they felt offended) further confirm this.
Nevertheless, when we read this story today, the readers have very different response as the story seemed to be more ‘normal’. This shows how our perception regarding feminism has changed since this story was first written.
