A Dollís House traces the awakening of Nora Helmer from her previously unexamined life of domestic, wifely comfort. Having been ruled her whole life by either her father or her husband Torvald, Nora finally comes to question the foundation of everything she has believed in once her marriage is put to the test. Having borrowed money from a man of ill-repute named Krogstad, by forging her fatherís signature, she was able to pay for a trip to Italy to save her sick husbandís life (he was unaware of the loan, believing that the money came from Noraís father). Since then, she has had to contrive ways to pay back her loan, growing particularly concerned with money and the ways of a complex world.
