It is a rather astounding change that Nora goes through and it says a lot about her circumstances and her character as a whole The one of the main reasons it seems that Nora plays up her whimsicalness is because that is exactly the way that Torvald wants her to be. He wants her to be like a doll, something that is pretty to have but does not necessarily need your full attention.

She did this first with her father as evident when she says, “When I was at home with Papa he told me his opinion about everything, and so I has the same opinions” and then later in her life she did the same thing with Torvald, made her…

    where it is located, Anderson chose varying reds, muted yellow, browns, and dark orange tones to give it a sense of warmth, familiarity, and age. The summary of Royal children’s driven childhood is a great example of Anderson using color to suggest their mood and represent their personality. Young Chas’s room is filled with mostly gray, which one can assume that it connotes responsibility since he became a business man at a very young age. This color made him more mature for his age. Margot’s,…

    It all began when my mom accepted a job offer and we moved clear across the country from New york to California in August. These states were completely different and I was just starting to adjust to the new life style. New york was cold, windy, and sunny (sometimes) and it was full of tall buildings. The main sources of transportation were a taxi and your own legs. If you weren’t skinny when you got there, you are now. California is sunny all year-round and is filled with girls with abs and real…

    His stormy grey eyes pierced into my green orbs. It was evident that he was drunk, and that was mainly because his eyes were darker than normal. I was curious to what alcoholic drink was flowing throughout his body. One quick sniff and I could tell that scotch was taking over his veins. This wasn’t the first time I’ve experienced this side to him, but right now I needed to finish my homework. “Clarke,” he slurred and swayed, close to falling. “Yes Dad?” I questioned with a hint of attitude in…
