11. Consider the ways in which the marriage of Nora and Helmer is typical rather than uniquely theirs. 12. Assess the thematic importance of deception and honesty, of self-deception and self-discovery. 13. Explore the implications of this interpretation: "All Doll House represents a woman imbued with the idea of becoming a person, but it proposes nothing categorical about women becoming people; in fact, its real theme has nothing to do with the sexes. It is the irrepressible conflict of two different personalities which have founded themselves on two radically different estimates of reality" (Robert M. Adams, "Ibsen on the Contrary," in Modern Drama, ed. Anthony Caputi [New York: Norton, 1966], 345).

I think the gender roles and marriage expectations for the era might have been typical. The patriarchal views of Torvald were consistent with marriage expectations for the time.
