A Doll's House

A Doll's House


by Henrik Ibsen

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

We've got your back. With the Tough-O-Meter, you'll know whether to bring extra layers or Swiss army knives as you summit the literary mountain. (10 = Toughest)

(4) Base Camp

A Doll's House is written in a straightforward realist style, which makes it really easy for a modern audience to get into. There's no thick Shakespearean poetry to wade through here. The play is also very active. Not a word is wasted as the plot catapults to the climactic battle of the sexes. You should have no trouble getting wrapped up in this time-honored drama.

And, unlike poor Nora, you'll have an easy time getting out of this drama as well.
