Further Informationtr / 5 / The review of the play when it was performed at Abbotts Opera House in Auckland reflected the generally-held views that Europe was so steeped in tradition that attitudes towards women lagged behind those in the new world. / About seventy years ago it was said by Goethe that the Germans were a century behind the English, although since then they have caught up to us in arts and manufactures, they are still very far behind in their social relations, especially in their way of regarding women. German women are still to a considerable extent looked upon and treated by their "lords and masters" as inferior creatures. They are also bound down by many conventional ideas from which their English and American sisters have long since emancipated themselves... / ...Norway, it seems, is in the same backward condition, and Henrik Ibsen, the Norwegian dramatist, makes the emancipation of women one of the principal planks in his ethical platform. The chief work in which he has embodied this idea is his drama"Et Dukkeheim" or "A Doll's House" / (New Zealand Herald, Thursday 18th January,1891) / Performed 24 times at Novelty Theatre in London. Touring in Australia. New Zealand. Egypt. India and America. Sources: Harley Granville-Barker." "The coming of Ibsen" in The Eighteen-Eighties: Essays by Fellows of the Royal Society of Literature".
