  1. Compare and Contrast

1) Hubris

The plays ‘A Doll’s House’ by Henrik Ibsen and ‘Tartuffe’ by Moliere have been found to compare and contrast in various ways in terms of usage of hubris in their development. Various characters in both the films have been found to compare in the way they emerged as victims of circumstances against their wish and expectations. For instance, in ‘A Doll’s House’, Nora’s initial act of forgery seemed easy for her, not knowing the upcoming predicaments associated with such an act (Pavlovski 316). In fact, it is her forgery act that seems to destruct her family and her entire future remains to be full of obstacles as a result of the act she did some years back.
