For centuries, human experience has been synonymous with the masculine experience, and the collective image of humaneness has been one-sided and incomplete. Women’s experience has interested only man as it has involved himself, and he has defined her experience on the basis of his encounters with the women in both his real life and his fantasy life. Man’s interpretation of women’s nature has stereotypes that have served as models for generations of women, but man’s understanding has been that of subject analyzing object; women has not been defined as a subject in her own right. This paper makes a study of patriarchal subterfuge and feminist counteraction in Ibsen’s A Doll’s House.
