A Doll House Background: Nora thinks she will continue living her blissfully happy roles as dutiful wife and mother. But she has kept a secret from her husband, an act she considers compassionate, that actually helped to win back his health. But she soon learns with horror that the compassionate act was really a crime and that she will become the victim of blackmail. The devastating news and the fear of scandal propels her into confrontation with her self-righteous husband. Henrik Ibsen’s 1879 landmark play exploded traditional notions of marital roles. The controversy it raised and the acclaim it won served as a battle cry for critics who supported the creation of a drama of ideas. It earned accolades for the author who came to be considered one of the founders of the modern theatre.
