This book was SO much better than Beowulf. I kinda saw why these two books were on my summer reading homework- they were like total opposites, so I think the point was to see a contrast in time and views. I’m probably wrong but whatever.
Anyway, I highly enjoyed this classic! Which is a bit odd to be saying since I can count the classics I’ve enjoyed on one hand.
Nora is a housewife and mother who is seemingly perfect. She obeys her husband and spends time with her kids.
However, she accidentally commits a crime trying to save her husband and it is eventually revealed. After that, Nora changes and starts to see things how they really are.
I don’t have much to say about this play… it was short, entertaining, and I loved it. The whole first half of the play had me wondering if I’d read the summary correctly- it was supposed to be the first truly Feminist play. By the end, though, the feminism was obvious- and wonderful.
I totally didn’t expect the ending to be the way it was. I mean, I expected something like it, but not quite that way.
Should you read it? YES! Definitely.
