Hendrick Ibsen's play: "A Doll's House" is chosen with consideration that Hendrick Ibsen is regarded as a Father of Modern Drama. He was the first important play wright to realize in practice the profound possibilities of dramatic realism. And also the writer is interested in Hendrick Ibsen's story because he was one of the first to argue for women's rights.

This study has attempted to describe Norma Helmer's characters and efforts to maintain her individual personality.

Dr. Rank Mrs. Linde Krogstad. and her three children. and how Norma Helmer maintains her individual personality. From this analysis. the writer can find Norma Helmer's effort to maintain her individual personality. The result of the analysis show that the major character lives in the dissatisfaction of the unfulfillment of her psychological needs such as the need to be accepted, free, appreciated. and loved for eight years. Norma Helmer loses the sense of beloging, because she feels she is nothing for Torvald (her husband). All these feeling lead her to the top of her dissatisfaction. At her home she cannot be herself and she cannot express her real feelings, thoughts and makes her own decisions. Living in such situation. Norma Helmer feels as if she were not a person, but she feels that she is Torvald’s doll. Therefore her home is not "a home" for her, but it is "A Doll's House".
