The changes in the play are mainly concerning the characters. Their behavior shifts from one perspective to the other in a matter of moments. The concept of time is actually represented by these changes of personality, because from calm dialogues, when time appears steady for the reader, complicated situations appear when time seems to be flying by.
Also, the space helps the reader to observe details, especially when the characters go from one room to the other. To be clearer about my perspective, I will give examples further on. The Helmers are wealthy, refined, with a close look on details and with their house also open for friends and guests. Also, Doctor Rank seems to behave toward Nora, but when they remain alone in a room, he confesses his feelings for her.
Beside Nora, the other characters offer a lot of surprises to the reader, which were determined by a constantly changing environment. For instance, when Torvald Helmer found out about the contract that Nora forged, he immediately changed his behavior toward her, turning himself from a loving husband to a hateful one that just wants to keep the appearances of a happy marriage.
Doctor Rank was also surprising when he declared his love to Nora, although he was introduced at the beginning of the play as a friend of the family. Although Nora seems to have everything under control, she shifts her behavior the minute she realizes that her husband is not really in love with her and that actually she is not so important for him. We could all notice that Nora Helmer is the main character of the play.
She is always involved in every dialogue, although she is not even present. What I found intriguing is that the writer made her a woman with a double life — one of which her husband knew nothing about — but Ibsen did not blame her for that. Even if she was hiding the truth from Torvald, one cannot put the guilt for her for the difficult situation in which she ended.
Except for Nora, it is easy for the reader to tell which the good characters are and which the bad ones are. Because Nora always has a good motive for her behavior and is actually the most sincere. Helmer is helped by everybody around her by Anne, to take care of the children, by her housemaid to hide the presence of Nils, by Mrs.
Linde when she founds out the story of the contract , which looks alike to a fairy tale, when the other characters help the princess when she is in trouble. The only person that actually disappoints her is her husband, who immediately figures out a way to remain the good citizen with the loving wife and the happy family. In a moment of intimate dialogue with the nurse, Nora asks:
