In the case of  A Doll's House , both the world of the play and the world Ibsen lived in are the same. Ibsen wrote  A Doll's House  in Norway in 1879, and the play presumably took place sometime in the same decade. Set in an upper-middle class home, the play demonstrates the importance of social class in late-19th century Norway.  Born into the upper-middle class himself, Ibsen not only understood the importance of social class, but also the expectations placed on its members.  Likewise,

A Doll's House's central theme Unknown One of A Doll's House's central theme is secession from society. It is demonstrated by several of its characters breaking away from the social standards of their time and acting on their own terms. No one character demonstrates this better than Nora.

The night is silent and still as four mortals alternately hate and love, monarchs of the faerie world clash wills, and the mischief of one irrepressible woodland sprite weaves a spell over all. The breath of the darkness is lit with the glow of foxfire; hearts are broken and mended within the span of short hours. In the bower of the
