    In Ibsens A Dolls House there are elements of both a tragedy and a comedy however it is not completely a comedy nor is it fully a tragedy In my opinion A Dolls House follows the structure of a tragedy in the beginning of the play and then follows the structure of a comedy in the ending One of the major reasons why it is not entirely a comedy is that Nora is not a static character Though she is a stereotypical silly young girl Nora comes to a realization at the end of the novel which is not one
