The only reason why he bans Nora from having macaroons is because he thought sweets would damage her teeth. He was only concerned about Nora’s outer appearance and sweets damaging her teeth would mean ruining her outer appearance. This shows Torvald’s invidious nature and clearly showing that he had an upper hand in their marital relationship. This claim can be furthermore supported by the fact that Torvald always keeps the doors to his study locked insuring Nora never enters. Even while Nora performs the Tarantella dance, he gives her frequent instructions, mocks at her mistakes and then takes control of her by acting like her

In Genesis, the test that Adam and Eve faced was the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge. God told them not to eat the fruit in Genesis 2:17: “but as for the tree of knowledge of good and bad, you must not eat of it”. They didn’t obey God and they ate the fruit anyway, so God punished them for failing the test. In our society today we still have tests/, laws, and boundaries to keep people in check. If we didn’t have these tests, we wouldn’t know our limits.

She didn’t allow Eva Smith to take the aid from her Woman’s Charity Organisation because the girl took the name “Mrs Birling” as her name. This shows that the organisation is just a veneer for status and respectability rather than helping unfortunate women and shows that she has different rules for herself and the society.

Priestley had shown an even clearer point of view to the capitalistic society, that irresponsible and cold heartedness can kill a person, directly or
Under a pretext that a women should focus her beauty on internal matters, she is not allowed to be dressed in a particular way whole. The female adultery is condemned (Rom 7: 3) but nothing is said about a similar behavior on the part of the husband.
