Often, literature allows one to examine the main ideas in works such as poems, plays, and paintings. Although each work may lie in different sections of art and possess diverse characteristics, they tend to have themes, characters, and styles used to develop the plot. An analysis of such elements in a play allows one to generate a better understanding of the author’s motive. Also, one gets to understand the role that the play has in entertaining, informing or warning society. An analysis of Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House makes it possible to understand the underlying themes and character motives in the play. A comparison with other plays also allows one to establish the quality of the play.
