Nora Will Come Back

At the end of A Doll’s House, Nora made a rash decision to leave Torvald. Nora thought that Torvald would save her from Krogstad’s blackmailing but he didn’t see it. Torvald didn’t want to see his life destroyed by this woman’s stupid mistake. Throughout the play, Nora needed Torvald for everything.

Unlike Christina, Nora does not have a need to care for her husband and children so she does have the potential to leave Torvald for good. But I do not think that she will be able to supply herself with enough happiness to leave Torvald forever.

I believe that Nora will not be able to sustain herself to leave Torvald. She is in dire need of money every day and she is wasteful with it. I...
