Ibsen employs an objective third-person point of view in telling A Doll’s House, meaning that the point of view doesn’t belong to one of the characters in the play. Instead, the audience represents the objective, outside point of view that must come to their own conclusions on the morality of the characters. Though the play as a whole is told from a third-person point of view, Nora, as the protagonist, shares the most with the audience, and her world creates the setting for the play. Furthermore, the instances of dramatic irony (where the audience knows something that a character doesn’t), such as when Torvald tells Nora that he feels “physically ill” around dishonest people (while we know that Nora committed forgery and is lying to Torvald), center around what characters do not know about Nora. This creates the sense that audience members need mostly concern themselves with Nora’s transformation and what will happen once other characters learn the truth about her.
