I am left with many big questions after reading this play. On the one hand, Nora's decision to leave her family in order to discover herself and develop her own identity seems noble and almost heroic. On the other hand, Nora leaves all of her responsibilities behind as well as a record of deceipt and subtle manipulation.
She is finally being honest when she chooses to leave but we can't say that she is being noble too. The appearance of emancipation for Nora is only an appearance. She has been too long subjugated and too long had to sneak around and lie...
Also, Mrs. Linde chooses to put herself back into the position which Nora opts to leave behind, that of a wife and mother. The play does not clearly state that women should not be expected to work and clean and raise children and generally fulfill that stereotypical role. In fact, the play only complicates that question.
What is clear, however, is the notion that honesty can save a person from self-destruction (even if that same honesty destroys a family at the same time).
