a doll house
Consider the symbols (the Christmas Tree or the Closed Doors) used in the first two acts of Ibsen’s A Doll’s House and choose the one that you are most interested in or intrigued by.
Write a 300 word one-paragraph analysis of Ibsen’s use of symbolism. Your analysis should include a topic sentence, examples from the play, internal citations, and analysis. Do not consult any outside sources for this assignment, which should be submitted as an attached Word document in MLA format. Include the name of the author and the play.
Remember that an analysis of literary elements includes your explaining what they mean and why they are important. If, for example, you have identified a door as a symbol, be sure to explain how it is used in the poem, what it symbolizes, and how it relates to the play’s overall meaning. Include quotes from the play, but rely mostly on your own analysis of how and why the author used the symbol.
When you are finished, you must reply to TWO classmates using a response of at least 150 words.
