This power point lecture will take you though all of Act I beginning with the first impression we have of Torvald of Nora to a discussion of how those first impressions were likely incorrect. The slides are a mix of textual quotations and commentary. Students will examine the statements of Nora,Torvald, Kristine, Krogstad, and Dr. Rank in an effort to illicit from students inferences about these characters. In particular, the lecture focuses on the different aspects of Nora -- especially the contrast between who she really is and how she is perceived. Slides also focus on Torvald -- his personality, his view of Nora, his view of Krogstad, and his motivations. Please do not be thrown off by the length of the power point; as mentioned, many of the slides are textual quotes.
