Which play gives a more realistic portrayal of its male characters, Trifles or A Doll's...
1 Answer | add yours
The play with the more realistic portrayal of male characters is without doubt Ibsen's A Doll's House. This is for several reasons. Ibsen was an innovator of realism in theatre and introduced minute psychological detail into characterizations and situations. Contrastingly, Glaspell focuses more on theme and plot at the loss of in-depth realistic characterization. This applies especially to the male characters because they are being criticized.
