This paper examines Henrik Ibsen's "A Doll's House" and, in particular, describes at his interpretation of the standing of women in society. It looks at how Ibsen metaphorically chains women into tightly bound packages who have had their actions, their inner values and morals and even their individual thoughts greatly affected by the suffocating rules imposed by society.

From the Paper:

"Nora has been chained so long by Society that even her thoughts are affected. She thinks only of herself and her family, and she cares not what rules there are if they don't impinge on her little world. She is living in a bubble. She thinks that she can do as she pleases and when her husband is taken ill, she borrows money to save his life by taking a vacation to a warmer climate. She has no understanding of how their situation affects their lives, and she doesn't know or care how the Law will see her resulting actions to get the money she needs to fix the problem. She doesn't want to upset her father who is dying, and refuses to tell her husband how ill he is, so she tries to be manly and take the responsibility on her own."
