Nora is portrayed as the antagnoist in the play. Therefore, the audiene sympathizes with her because she is in trouble and in danger of ruining her marriage when the only thing that the audience sees that she did was try to help her husband. Torvald also seeks perfection in her even though she is far from it. He is the type of husband who is all-controlling, giving her no freedom to make her own decisons.
