In what ways do you find Nora a victim? In what ways at fault? Nora Helmer, the

wife of Torvald Helmer and mother of 3 children, is a very complex and brave

woman for her time. She plays the main role in the play and is essential to its

plot. She is both a victim of her circumstances and also at fault for actions

which she committed. Nora is a victim. Throughout her entire life, she has never

been taken seriously by anyone. She has been treated like a doll by both male

characters in her life, her father and her husband, and has acted accordingly.

She has believed whatever they have told her without any question because she

feared it would anger them. ?At home, Daddy used to tell me what he thought,

then I thought the same. And if I thought differently, I kept quiet about it,

because he wouldn?t have liked it? and he played with me as I used to play

with my dolls. Then I came to live in your house?? ( Henrik Ibsen: Act III,

pg. 1465) Therefore, she constructs a life of dishonesty because she encompasses

different morals than her husband, and their minds never meet. Torvald Helmer

has straight principles and knows clearly where he is, where he is going and how

he is going to get there. Nora has conflicting goals because she does not have a

clear-cut path for her future and she writes her own story. Nora is at fault.

She makes decisions on her own, borrows money to save her husband, and makes the

decision to forge her father?s signature, and is excited about what she is

doing which is the worst mistake. She also does not follow the expected female

behavior for her time, which causes her problems. A good example of that would

be when she borrowed money from Krogstad. This decision alone was not even a

possibility for a woman of her time nor was her decision to borrow without the

consent of a male such as her husband or father. Her biggest and most grave

mistake is forgery of her father?s signature on the IOU in attempt to spare

him any worry on his deathbed. She is also at fault because she ahs principles

which are in conflict with the law. An example of that would be the manner in

which she views that her crime of forgery was permissible because she meant good

and was not trying to actually commit the crime for her own benefit, but rather

with good intentions. She does not understand that a crime committed is a crime

committed whether or not the intentions were good or bad and that she will be

held accountable by the law regardless of what she feels is right. This play has

many themes which add to Nora?s character and position such as conflicting

values and principles, the gender issue which is the expected male behavior and

the expected female behavior, and how the female role is unsatisfying,

restricting and false. Are these themes still concerns for women in the present
