I will send you a
general idea of what I would like it to focus on. I need the paper in .doc format.
I have included one source in the pdf that I am sending, the other source that you can site is the movie on netflix, A Doll
young bride reexamines her outwardly perfect life and marriage when her husband takes ill. She ends up forging her father's
signature on a
bank loan and becomes the victim of blackmail. This version of the play by Henrik Ibsen, despite its big-name English cast (Anthony Hopkins, Denholm Elliot),
Cast: Claire Bloom, Anthony Hopkins
Director: Patrick Garland
Here is something I wrote but it is not good enough:
This play gives you the impression that it was written by a
Feminist. It is quiet shocking, and I can understand why this play created a
scandal. At the time this play was written people were more conservative and a
women striking out on her own was almost unheard of. I believe she had every good reason to leave Torval. Nora however had no legitimate reason to punish her children because of her husbands failings. Leaving a
husband is one thing that must only be decided while you are not in the throes of the cloud of anger. She was on the verge of committing suicide. Which makes any decision more difficult and subject to emotion, not logic. When one is deciding to leave ones husband or wife logic must be involved. I personally would have been tempted to leave him too. But what must never be forgotten is that the children did nothing to deserve loosing their Mother. If after thinking long and hard about the situation rationally and then deciding that they would be best apart, then she should leave him not the children. I wholeheartedly believe this is what happens even today if a
wife does not try to educate herself. This doesn't mean that I am against women being stay at home Moms, I am not, I only believe that a
women should have some form of education because it helps her to develop her personality, and have control over many aspects of her life. Divorce is one thing, abandonment of children that are innocent is something quiet different. I was abandoned as a
child from the age of 10 and I can tell you that it is extremely damaging. We are left to have a
sliver of hope though in the end of the play, when Torval says “Ah! The miracle of miracles?!" (Ibsen 1116).
Why did Torval loose his wife? I believe he lost her because he was more in love with appearances (how he looked to the outside world) than with his wife. This fact is obvious throughout the play, but blatantly obvious when he opens the letter. He was ever ready to throw his wife away over something that could have been solved with a
bit of time and maybe giving the guy his job back. He even went to far as to forbid her from talking to her own children, saying I cannot trust you with them (Ibsen 1110).
I not only read the play, but I found it so intriguing that I watched the movie. In the movie he even hit her. It is on Netflix. Many people like the play because they hold the same viewpoint on marriage that Henrik Ibsen held. But I did not consider this play to be putting all marriage down, only marriage before education.
How wonderful it is to be truly loved with all your flaws, and not need to pretend to be what your beloved wants you to be. Nora says that she always held the same opinions that her father had and did not even know if they were his or hers, and she did the same thing when she married Torval. She doesn't know who she is and what she stands for, because she has always pretended to be what they (her father and Torval) wanted her to be (Ibsen 1112). The greatest gift in life is not wealth or power or even knowledge, the greatest gift in life is true love. It is so sad that so few people find it. Because when you have found it you realize that there is no greater gift.
I also wrote this and thought it may be helpful for getting the idea that I am trying to convey:
First Torval was a
fool and petty and in love with appearances, how he looked to the outside world more than he loved his wife. This fact is obvious throughout the play, but blatantly obvious in when he opens the letter.
but that is not his biggest fault. His biggest fault lies in the fact that he was ever ready to throw his wife away over something that could have been solved with a
bit of time and maybe giving the guy his job back. I not only read the play, but I found it so interesting that I watched the movie. In the movie he even hit her.
What is true love: loving someone enough that nothing can come between you. I know what my husband would have done, he would have had a
few dramatic words with him and he would have done the same thing that was eventually done. But no-one would have had to sell their soul to this guy.
How wonderful it is to be loved with all your flaws, and not need to pretend to be what your beloved wants you to be. She says that she always held the same opinions that her father had and did not even know if they were his or hers, and she did the same thing when she married Torval. She doesn't know who she is and what she stands for, because she has always pretended to be what they wanted her to be.
There are faxes for this order.
