about what people will say. I don't like overprotective individuals like that, and that's why I don't like Torvald.
In conclusion animal imagery in this play is used to show the kind of person Torvald is, and the kind of person he would like Nora to be (or at least how he sees her). In this play, it is critical in the character development for both characters, showing really how both sides perceive the other.
