Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
1. Consider how aware you think Nora is of her behavior and life choices. Develop a claim about how aware or unaware she may be and present it to the class. Pull quotes from the text to defend your claim. Try to use some of the vocabulary found in the lecture on psychoanalytic theory. Then, state a theme found within the play that this exercise has helped you discover. Remember, you do not have to write your researched essay from a psychoanalytic approach, but carefully studying the text from this perspective may help you to develop a theme you would like to discuss in your researched essay.
2. Find at least two passages in A Doll’s House that you are considering using in your researched essay. Briefly discuss/analyze the passages through the lens of Marxist theory. How does doing so help you gain insight into the text?
