The central figure of this timeless story is Nora, a young woman pampered and controlled by her father, and then by her husband, Torvald, who thinks of her as childlike, calling her his little songbird and his doll. Nora has forged her father’s signature in order to borrow a large sum of money so that her husband can recuperate from a serious illness. Krogstad, the person from whom Nora has borrowed the money, is relieved of his position at the bank by Torvald, for having been disgraced for committing a similar crime himself in the past. Krogstad threatens to reveal Nora’s crime and thus disgrace her and her husband, unless Nora can convince her husband not to fire him. When Torvald discovers that Nora forged her father’s name, he is ready to disclaim his wife, even though she did it to save his life. This makes her question all of her beliefs, including whether her husband is worthy of her love. She is pushed to an extreme act of desperation.
