    Henrik Ibsen’s play A Doll’s House, certainly fits the definition of a modern tragedy. The tragic heroine, Nora is an everyday woman. She is special in that she is very attractive and has lots. the Book of Job and an Elizabethan tragedy is illogical since the former is merely a fragmentary dialogue and the latter a fully developed art form. But even by their own comparison, their untenable concept of "struggle" has led these critics astray. Both consider Ibsen a master of tragedy. This book is a wide-ranging study of Sophoclean language. From a detailed analysis of sentence-structure in the first chapter, it moves on to discuss in subsequent chapters how language shapes the perception of characters, of myths, of gods and of choruses.
