Historical Scholarship examines works of literature as reflections of the time period in which they were created (Barnet, et al. 1430-31). This type of criticism allows the reader/critic to “understand how people in the past thought and felt” through the artist’s depiction of the particular circumstances of fictional characters. In the case of A Doll’s House, which was written in 1879, Henrik Ibsen was focused on writing “realistic ‘problem plays’” (Barnet, et al. 1280). How is A Doll’s House a realistic problem play? What “problem” is it addressing and how “realistic” is it? How does it reflect the gender roles of the time period in which it was written?
Conduct your research focusing on sources that deal with how gender roles were defined in the 19th century, particularly in Scandinavia (Ibsen was a Norwegian playwright) but also in the U.S. (which also could have influenced Ibsen’s perspective). Try to uncover certain sociocultural and political trends/movements during the 19th century that defined or influenced gender roles at the time.
