Ibsen & Williams : Roles of Their Women in Drama
Explore the roles of women in three plays by two influential dramatists: Ibsen in A Dolls’s House and Hedda Gabler, and Tennessee Williams in A Streetcar Named Desire. Ibsen creates rebellious heroines who confront the limited and destructive roles that society imposes on them. In contrast, Williams’ women are powerless and passive, submitting to their gender stereotypes. Discuss the similarities and differences between these women’s roles in drama in the past with roles of women in the present.
