The doctors came to me and said is life was in danger and the only thing that could save him was to live in the south. ” (Ibsen, 2011, Act 3, p. 590) Nora seen forging her father’s signature for a loan because woman were not permitted to get loans was necessary because the doctors told her that her husband would die If they did not go where It was warmer. Nora revealing her forging her father’s name in order to take out the loan and the things she has done in order to try and pay back the loan without having to reveal to her husband what she did shows that she is resourceful.

Nora is proud of what she has done and shows no remorse whatsoever for going against the law and obtaining a loan In her father’s name until Mr.. Sarasota come to talk to her husband. Then her whole demeanor seems to change from almost boastful to slightly timid and a little pleading when she interacts with him.
She notices that Mrs.. Lend appears o be attracted to and have a vested interest in Sarasota.

Linden really is to him. Without his threat of blackmail Nora would probably have Just kept her mouth shut continued to make her payments and her husband would never have been aware of her misdoings.
