In this memoir of personal discovery, loss and renewal, Claire Bloom looks beyond the stage and unveils her true identity. One of the most beautiful and gifted actresses of her generation, Claire Bloom's achievements in theatre and television have been celebrated throughout the world. Bloom traces her fatherless years in the 1930s to her apprenticeship in the British theatre and her rise as an actress in Charles Chaplin's Limelight before she was 20. She recounts professional and personal relationships with Laurence Olivier, John Gielgud, Anthony Hopkins and Paul Schofield, and tells of her long entanglement with Richard Burton. She recalls failed marriages to Rod Steiger and Hillard Eskins, and the book concludes with a stark account of the most important relationship of her life, with writer Philip Roth.

A Doll's House (Bokm�l: Et dukkehjem; also translated as A Doll House) is a three-act play in prose by Henrik Ibsen. It premiered at the Royal Theatre in Copenhagen, Denmark, on 21 December 1879, having been published earlier that month.The play is significant for its critical attitude toward 19th-century marriage norms. It aroused great controversy at the time, as it concludes with the protagonist, Nora, leaving her husband and children because she wants to discover herself. Ibsen was inspired by the belief that "a woman cannot be herself in modern society," since it is "an exclusively male society, with laws made by men and with prosecutors and judges who assess feminine conduct from a masculine standpoint." Its ideas can also be seen as having a wider application: Michael Meyer argued that the play's theme is not women's rights, but rather "the need of every individual to find out the kind of person he or she really is and to strive to become that person." In a speech given to the Norwegian Association for Women's Rights in 1898, Ibsen insisted that he "must disclaim the honor of having consciously worked for the women's rights movement," since he wrote "without any conscious thought of making propaganda," his task having been "the description of humanity."

The Vaughans are all set to enjoy Christmas. Thomas has been promoted and Nora is delighted. Everything at last seems to be going right, until a visitor arrives uninvited and causes them to question just how perfect their marriage is. Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House caused outrage both in its style and subject matter when first staged in 1879. Zinnie Harris's retelling is played against the backdrop of British politics at the turn of the last century - to revel a world where duty, power and hypocrisy rule. Zinnie Harris's version of A Doll's House premiered at the Donmar Warehouse, London, in May 2009.

A Doll's House (Norwegian: Et dukkehjem) It is a three-act prose play written by Henrik Ibsen in 1879, which was first performed at the Royal Danish Theater in Copenhagen, Denmark on December 21, 1879, and was published early this month.The importance of the play lies in the decisive stance it takes toward marriage norms in the nineteenth century. It sparked widespread controversy at the time, as the novel ends with the heroine, Nora, leaving her husband and children in search of herself. Ibsen believed in the idea that women cannot discover themselves in the modern era, as it is a society monopolized by males with laws established by men, and it evaluates female behavior, claiming and judging it from a purely male standpoint. "The ideas of the play can also be viewed from a larger perspective: Michael Mayer believes that the theme of the play is not only about women's rights, but about the need of every individual, whether male or female, to find and strive to reach his true self." For women's rights in 1898, Epson asserted that he did not ascribe to himself the privilege of working carefully for the women's rights movement as he wrote it inadvertently to spread any propaganda, but his mission was to paint a realistic picture of humanity.In 2006, the centenary of Ibsen's death, the play marked the most staged play of the year. The manuscript of the Epson-signed dollhouse was inscribed on the Memory of the World Register in 2001 by UNESCO, in recognition of its historical value.PersonalitiesNora Helmer - Torvald's wife and mother of three, seeks to represent the ideal of a nineteenth-century wife but leaves her family at the end of the play.Torvald Helmer - Nora's husband, recently promoted to the bank manager, gets fed up but admits he is in love with his wifeDr. Rank - a rich family friend, who secretly loves Nora. He is a terminally ill patient who contracted gynecological tuberculosis as a result of a sexual disease transmitted to him by his father.Christine Lindh - Noora's old school friend, widow and looking for work, (sometimes her name is pronounced in English), she had a relationship with Krogstad before the events of the play.Nils Krogstad - Torvald Bank employee raising a child, a miserable and believed to be a villain who has revealed his old love for Kristen.Children - Norah and Torvald's children: Ivar, Bobby, and Amy.Anne Marie - Nora's former nanny, and now takes care of the children.Helen - the maid of the Helmer family.The porter - bring the Christmas tree to the Hilmer family home at the start of the play.

The renowned biographer's definitive portrait of a literary titan *A 'BOOKS OF 2021' PICK IN THE OBSERVER, GUARDIAN, FINANCIAL TIMES, SUNDAY TIMES, EVENING STANDARD AND NEW STATESMAN* Appointed by Philip Roth and granted complete access and independence, Blake Bailey spent years poring over Roth's personal archive, interviewing his friends, lovers, and colleagues, and engaging Roth himself in breathtakingly candid conversations. The result is an indelible portrait of an American master and of the post-war literary scene. Bailey shows how Roth emerged from a lower-middle-class Jewish milieu to achieve the heights of literary fame, how his career was nearly derailed by his catastrophic first marriage, and how he championed the work of dissident novelists behind the Iron Curtain. Bailey examines Roth's rivalrous friendships with Saul Bellow, John Updike and William Styron, and reveals the truths of his florid love life, culminating in his almost-twenty-year relationship with actress Claire Bloom, who pilloried Roth in her 1996 memoir, Leaving a Doll's House. Tracing Roth's path from realism to farce to metafiction to the tragic masterpieces of the American Trilogy, Bailey explores Roth's engagement with nearly every aspect of post-war American culture.
