The play "A DOLL"S HOUSE", by Henrik Ibsen, is a tragic story about a .
Initially, the play starts off in a very friendly .
atmosphere. The main heroin Nora is decorating the Christmas tree .
and gathering all the gifts for the Christmas Eve celebration. Nora is the .
beloved wife of Helmer, who is soon going to be promoted to .
the Manager's position at the local Bank where he is employed. Helmer .
refers to his wife as his "songbird" and is in deep love with her very .
existence. This is a well to do family, which is well respected in the town .
they live in. They are debt free and without a care in the world, so we think .
in the beginning. But Nora has a secret that nobody knows about. But as .
the secret gets around and about, all hell starts to break loose and .
everything starts to hit the fan.
Nora, the protagonists, made a big ethical and judicial mistake by forging .
her father's signatures on a loan (as the cosigner), which resulted in the .
tragedy in the end. You see, her husband was really sick and needed a large .
amount of money in order to pay for his treatment. Of course, they did not .
have the money. Since Nora knew that her husband would never allow her .
to borrow the money from the bank, because of his strict beliefs about .
never being in debt, she decided to go a head and borrow the money .
anyway without his permission, but for this to happen she needed a co-.
signer, which at the time was going to be her father. However, by the time .
the loan papers arrived her father had already been dead for a couple of .
days. So she quickly forged his signatures and signed on his behalf, which .
was totally against the law. So, the only two people who knew about this .
secret loan and about how Nora forged her father's signature was Krogstad .
(loan broker) and Nora herself. Nora told her husband that her father had left her this money after his death.
Anyway, to make a long story short, the villain in this story is Krogstad, .
