Answers

The answer is:

Nora tells Helmer that there are no letters in the box, while the audience knows that there is a letter from Krogstad.

Dramatic irony occurs when the audience possesses information that the characters do not.

In Henrik Ibsen's "A Doll's House," Helmer does not know about Krogstad's letter in the mailbox, which reveals Nora's forgery to borrow money. The tension increases when Helmer wishes to check the mailbox and Nora intends to prevent him to do so by calling his attention.

He uses dramatic irony because the audience knows that Nora is planning to kill herself, while Torvald does not.

i guessed and got it right

Dramatic irony is a literary device in which the audience possesses information that the characters do not.

In the excerpt from "A Doll's House," by Henrik Ibsen, Nora pretends to be nervous about her dance at the party so that Helmer does not read Krogstad's letter in the mailbox. A feeling of tension is developed because the letter reveals unknown information to Helmer about how Nora forged her father's signature to obtain money for her husband's health treatment in Italy.

B

Explanation:

Nora does not know if she will leave her children, but the audience knows that she will.

B)Nora tells Helmer that there are no letters in the box, while the audience knows that there is a letter from Krogstad.

Explanation:

Dramatic irony achieves suspense by giving the audience information, often awareness of a threat, that a character they are watching does not have. Hitchcock's classic example involves people dining at a table with a bomb underneath it. It's only suspenseful if the audience knows it's there but the characters don't.

A Doll´s House, by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen, is a play that was first performed in 1879 and it is a dramatic criticism to the customs, traditions and social gender norms that dictated that a woman must always be subjected to a man´s rule and control. In the end, the main character, Norma, breaks all social rules by leaving her husband and children. When thinking about the techniques used in this play and also the literary styles that influence the work, you find that A Doll´s House is filled with dramatic irony. The reason for the use of dramatic irony is that it allows a reader to understand the elements within the work and the situations and events much better than the characters do. This style is used with the purpose of creating suspense in the readership.

Dramatic irony is basically the use of words and sentence structure that allows readers to be able to glimpse the true meaning behind the words and understand the true situation meant by them, even if the character or characters within the story do not. In this particular excerpt, the correct answer then would be B. Although this play is filled with dramatic irony, it is in option B where you can see it more clearly in the excerpt. Nora asks her husband Torvald not to check the box for letters and uses words to make him believe that in fact there are no letters, so there is no need for him to see, while in truth the reader understands that the opposite is true. This creates mystery because it allows the reader to understand that Nora is hidding something from her husband and is afraid of him discovering it.

the nurse does not know that Nora will leave her children, but the audience does.

Nora tells Helmer that there are no letters in the box, while the audience knows that there is a letter from Krogstad.

Ibsen uses drama and irony throughout the play to create the suspense in this passage.
