Women’s Issues in the Past
In both Trifles and A Doll’s House the reputation and appearances of the two women are examined within nineteenth century marriages. The men believe that the women only focus on trivial matters. These two poems are so powerful because of the metaphors, emphasis on gender roles, and tone the narrator uses to convey the way women were treated in the nineteenth century.
In both dramas the characters are forced to live in an environment where they are belittled. They are believed to be home makers, which for this particular time was what women were thought to only be able to do. The difference in the two is the type of home the women come from. In Trifles, Mrs. Wright’s home is portrayed as dirty and out dated.
