Ibsen's 1879 play shocked its first audiences with its radical insights into the social roles of husband and wife.

A Doll's House is a three-act play in prose by Henrik Ibsen. The play is significant for its critical attitude toward 19th century marriage norms. It aroused great controversy at the time, as it concludes with the protagonist, Nora, leaving her husband and children because she wants to discover herself. Ibsen was inspired by the belief that "a woman cannot be herself in modern society," since it is "an exclusively male society, with laws made by men and with prosecutors and judges who assess feminine conduct from a masculine standpoint." Its ideas can also be seen as having a wider application: Michael Meyer argued that the play's theme is not women's rights, but rather "the need of every individual to find out the kind of person he or she really is and to strive to become that person." In a speech given to the Norwegian Association for Women's Rights in 1898, Ibsen insisted that he "must disclaim the honor of having consciously worked for the women's rights movement," since he wrote "without any conscious thought of making propaganda," his task having been "the description of humanity." In 2006, the centennial of Ibsen's death, A Doll's House held the distinction of being the world's most performed play.

The action of A Doll House takes place at Christmas, the time of the death of the old year and the birth of the new. Two couples in this play will experience this 'turning point' of the year in radically different ways. Christine Linde and Nils Krogstad will see their lives of sorrow, forgiveness, reconciliation, (embodying the Christian aspect of the season) move from devastation to happiness. Torvald and Nora Helmer, living in 'doll house' will be expelled from their illusory Eden. They perform the season¿s pagan celebration: the Yule tree, the gifts, the tarantella dance, the feasting...If it is Nora who awakens first, it is because she, not Torvald, has been put through the violent shocks of three days drastic and examination of herself and her world. But the play ends with Torvald, and the possibility of his awakening too. The themes of the play, therefore, explore beyond the dimensions of particular social issues with which the play long has been associated. These issues are only one component of the rich human drama opened up by the dialectical action.

Stephen Siddall’s study of one of Ibsen’s most innovative plays places it firmly in the context of nineteenth century European theatre, ‘novelty theatre’, and the society of Norway of its time. The book discusses responses to Ibsen, especially those of George Bernard Shaw and William Archer in London, and the relationship of the play to issues of theatrical censorship. (More modern treatments, like the remarkable ones by Ingmar Bergman and by Fassbinder, are also covered.) The character of Nora leads into a discussion of feminism, and her relationship with Torvald and the performance of the crucial tarantella is sensitively discussed.

Four of Ibsen's most important plays in superb modern translations, part of the new Penguin Ibsen series. With her assertion that she is 'first and foremost a human being', Nora Helmer sent shockwaves throughout Europe when she appeared in Ibsen's greatest and most famous play, A Doll's House. Depicting one woman's struggle to be treated as a rational human being, and not merely a wife, mother or fragile doll, the play changed the course of theatrical history and sparked debates worldwide about the roles of men and women in society. Ibsen's follow-up Ghosts was no less radical, with its unrelenting investigation into religious hypocrisy, family secrets and sexual double-dealing. These two masterpieces are accompanied here by The Pillars of Society and An Enemy of the People, both set in Norwegian coastal towns and exploring the tensions and dark compromises at the heart of society. The new Penguin series of Ibsen's major plays offer the best available editions in English, under the general editorship of Tore Rem. All the plays have been freshly translated by the best modern translators and are based on the recently published, definitive Norwegian edition of Ibsen's works. They include new introductions and editorial apparatus by leading scholars.

A Doll's House (Norwegian: Et dukkehjem; also translated as A Doll House) is a three-act play in prose by Henrik Ibsen. It premiered at the Royal Theatre in Copenhagen, Denmark, on 21 December 1879, having been published earlier that month. The play is significant for its critical attitude toward 19th century marriage norms. It aroused great controversy at the time, as it concludes with the protagonist, Nora, leaving her husband and children because she wants to discover herself. Ibsen was inspired by the belief that "a woman cannot be herself in modern society," since it is "an exclusively male society, with laws made by men and with prosecutors and judges who assess feminine conduct from a masculine standpoint."

In Norway in 1879, Nora Helmer forges her deceased father's signature for a loan. She has not told her husband, Torvald, that her illegal activities are funding their future trip to Italy. But when Torvald fires one of his employees, the disgruntled man, Krogstad, begins to blackmail Nora into helping him get his job back. In the midst of this, Nora must find a way to cope with a family friend who has confessed his love for her. A Doll's House was based on the life of Laura Kieler, a good friend of Ibsen. Much that happened between Nora and Torvald happened to Laura and her husband, Victor. The play is significant for the way it deals with the fate of a married woman, who, at the time in Norway, lacked reasonable opportunities for self-fulfillment in a male-dominated world, despite the fact that Ibsen denies it was his intent to write a feminist play. In 2006, the centennial of Ibsen's death, A Doll's House held the distinction of being the world's most performed play that year. This case laminate collector's edition includes a Victorian inspired dust-jacket.
