Rationale Part 3 of the Language and Literature course, named “Literature - texts and contexts,” has been focused on evaluating literature from a contextual and stylistic framework. In our classroom, we’ve focused much of our time on reading A Doll’s House, a play written by Henrik Ibsen in 1879. The play, set within the Victorian Era, lay an insight into many facets and innate flaws of society.

In Katherine Mansfield’s “The Doll’s House” there is a much bigger story then what is being told. There is a lesson that can be learned by reading this story. Being prejudice isn’t always about people who are different colors or of different races, it can also be about people who are rich and people who are poor.

In A Doll’s House, Ibsen restrains the setting to a single room, the drawing and family room of the Helmer household. Ibsen used everything in this room, even the room itself, to demonstrate the principles of Norwegian society in the 19th century. The entirety of the play unfolds on one set; a “pleasant room” (page 1) in the Helmer household that serves both as a drawing room in which to receive guests and as a family room where the children play.
