Dolls house

Doll's House

One work in literature that I believe the setting plays a part in is, A Doll's House.

This is a play written by Henrik Ibsen.

It tells a story of how two people's marriage was ended because of society.

The play takes place in Europe in the nineteenth-century. During this time women were discriminated

. against. This simple fact affects the whole play's outcome. A young woman by the name of Nora is under the control of

her husband. He feels that he must rule her for he is the head of the family. He would place small stipulations on her

such as not being able to eat macaroons. When she would make mistakes, he would refer to her by some little name like,

"Lark" or "Squirrel."

All of these things mentioned ar due to the setting. This caused Nora to want to leave more and more. I believe Ibsen picked this setting to tell of how women were treated.
