A Doll's House

I actually read an online version of this text provided by my teacher as part of my Introduction to Drama course, so this is not the same version I'm writing about, but is the same work. This is probably the most famous Problem Play ever written, and is a rather fun read as well. It definitely deals heavily with the position of women in society at the time, and offers a great glimpse of society in general at the time the play was written.

A great play about a woman attempting to make it in a man's world, while all the while she is feeling doll in a doll house where the men control everything.

I had read this years ago, and forgotton how it went. Even though it was written a long time ago, some of the themes are still timely. Struggling in a marriage, guilt, trying to protect the person you love. I have read other Ibsen plays but this one always sticks in my mind. It is very short, and I give it a definite yes.

I wasn't expecting it to be in the format of a stage play, but it worked out well. Concise way of describing the scenes. I enjoyed how you slowly got to know the main character and seeing her change throughout the story into someone completely different from who she was in the beginning. It was a quick and easy read.
