This paper explains that, as Henrick Ibsen's play, "A Doll's House," progresses, the relationship between Nora and Torvald Helmer changes from that of a well-to-do husband and wife with cheerful children who seem to live the happy marriage life. The author points out that, towards the middle of the play, Nora seems to step away from her fantasy life, observing the fact that she is concerned about what her husband thinks of her. The paper relates that, during the third act, Nora finally opens her eyes to realize that her life with Torvald is over; and, as the play ends, she walks out of her "doll's house" into her new world of dependence, leaving Torvald to raise his three children on his own.
