The Lie in Ibsen's A Doll's House

- The Lie in Ibsen's A Doll's House      An action or statement that may be considered a lie to some may, in fact, not be considered, a lie to others: it might simply be considered, omitted information. The lie might seem to have an evil intent when first heard, but the true intention behind it may have been for helpful purposes or for protection.  In Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House, a lie was created to help and protect a loved one - yet it resulted in a catastrophic act.   The character Nora lives her life, in one sense, as a complete lie....   [tags: Dolls House essays Ibsen Essays]

- Part of the role that women fulfilled was the role of the weaker sex. Women were not considered equals to men, just merely side objects. They were viewed as frail and were to show no physical strength. In Pride and Prejudice, Austen writes, “ ‘To walk three miles, or four miles, or five miles, or whatever it is, above her ancles in dirt, and alone, quite alone. what could she mean by it?’” (Pride and Prejudice Austen 32). This talks of the headstrong character Elizabeth. It was unacceptable for a woman to have put herself in such a situation....   [tags: Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion]
