...play “A Doll’s House”, “Trifles” and “Othello” Introduction A comprehensive feminist interpretation of William Shakespeare’s “Othello”, Henrik Ibsen’s play “A Doll’s House” and Susan Glaspell’s “Trifles” will reveal that all these texts portray women as the playthings in the hands of their male counterparts.

Why to spend time pondering over rather than resolving it? Not a single problem is irresolvable. It’s just our mind, way of thinking and intention to solve a problem which can guide us. To solve a problem appropriately, one must consider better options than escaping from it.(R.Sharf 18) Avoidance is not a solution; it is basically a quick...

...Doll’s House A Doll’s House is a play significant for its important attitude towards 19th Centurymarriage norms.
