As she leaves, she reveals to Torvald that she hopes that a “miracle” might occur: that one day, they might be able to unite in real wedlock. The play ends with the door slamming on her way out.

Ibsen’s controversial end of the play, The Doll’s House

A three-act play written by Norway’s Henrik Ibsen in 1879 unlocks the truth of today’s era. Many of you would agree that a woman feels proud to be called as the queen of the house but never allows or accepts to be treated as a doll.

The cuddling words sound good but freedom of speech and expression is the need of every individual. After spending a great age and time at her father’s home and then with the husband, Henrik Ibsen’s Nora finally realized that life is not only pleasing with the adorable words of the husband but the actions demonstrate more.

Her husband treated her as a stuffed doll who has the right to listen but not to say anything, who can ask but not decide, who has to obey and not rule.

Real wedlock defines this relation to be accepting, forgiving, accepting each other as a better being, treating each other with respect and humility.

I strongly support Ibsen’s controversial end of the play. Nora slammed the door and left Torvald. This loudly proclaims that women should be treated respectfully with equal rights.
