A Doll's House is an 1879 play by Norwegian playwright
Henrik Ibsen. The play was the first of Ibsen's plays to create a sensation
and is now perhaps his most famous play, and required reading in many secondary
schools and universities. The play was controversial when first published, as it
is sharply critical of 19th century marriage norms. It follows the
formula of well-made play up until the final act, when it breaks convention by
ending with a discussion, not an unravelling. It is often called the first true
feminist play, although Ibsen denied this.
