 Why should we read The Doll's House?
    The reason why we should read The Doll's House is because, it gives insight to that time period, and helps us understand how people used to live. For example, "How much more exciting than peering through the slit of a door into a mean little hall with a hat-stand and two umbrellas!"  No one during our time period really uses umbrella and hat stands anymore.  It also helps the reader understand a childs opinion and a adults opinion, and connects their thoughts.  Mansfield shows that children and adults think somewhat alike.
