This paper explains that, in both William Shakespeare's "Othello" and Henrik Ibsen's "The Doll House", a major source of conflict is some serious misunderstanding between a man and a woman. The author points out that, while the plays differ in significant ways, they also have some traits in common such as a third person who wants to improve his position and attempts to manipulate the man's wife in an effort to reach his goal. The paper compares the three characters in each play to explore the similarities and differences related to this third-party plotting: the third persons Krogstad ("Doll House") and Iago ("Othello"), the husbands Torvald and Othello and the wives Nora and Desdemona.
