Product Information

  • Nora Helmer once secretly borrowed a large sum of money so that her husband could recuperate from a serious illness.
  • She never told him of this loan and has been secretly paying it back in small installments by saving from her household allowance.
  • Her husband, Torvald, thinks her careless and childlike, and often calls her his doll.
  • When he is appointed bank director, his first act is to relieve a man who was once disgraced for having forged his signature on a document.
  • This man, Nils Krogstad, is the person from whom Nora has borrowed her money.
  • It is then revealed that she forged her father's signature in order to get the money.
  • Krogstad threatens to reveal Nora's crime and thus disgrace her and her husband unless Nora can convince her husband not to fire him.
  • Nora tries to influence her husband, but he thinks of Nora as a simple child who cannot understand the value of money or business.
  • Thus, when Torvald discovers that Nora has forged her father's name, he is ready to disclaim his wife even though she had done it for him.
  • Later when all is solved, Nora sees that her husband is not worth her love and she leaves him.
