Unit 8.1 db: character monologues

 

Initial Response: A Doll’s House is fabulous study of people who are stuck in times and traditions. Our main characters are: Nora, Torvald, Christine, and Krogstad. A monologue is a speech by one actor on stage.  It is usually during a conversation and does not always have to be honest words.  Now it is time to combine your knowledge of characters and your knowledge of drama.

  • Please write a one to two paragraph monologue that reflects one of the main character’s personalities:
    1. A monologue that begins, “Nora left me three days ago and I’ve had a lot of time to think…”
    2. A monologue that begins, “I know what I did was wrong, but I don’t know how to tell Torvald…”
    3. A monologue that begins, “I stand here wondering if I should mail this letter. I know it will get Nora into trouble…”
