This is because Ibsen wrote with the purpose of unmasking the hypocrisy behind bourgeois social norms. To best produce this effect, Ibsen wrote using the common stylistic frame of a “well-made play”, which allowed Ibsen’s middle-class audiences to imagine they were observing their own lives or the lives of people like themselves (1060). Even here though, Ibsen strayed from convention by often including symbolism in his work. Many levels of symbolism can be found in A Doll’s House, some incorporated by Ibsen for a specific purpose and some unintentionally. One subtle symbol used by Ibsen in A Doll’s House is the act of dance, specifically the Tarantella.

The critic from library.thinkquest.org is correct in saying that "...the witches did not actually do anything to make Macbeth kill the king. They tempted him, but it was his own ambition that leads him to commit the crime." Although Macbeth's temptation started with the words of witches'; the true cause of his downfall was from his inner struggle, as well as greed and ambition.

Readers are only aware of what is presently occurring in the story and what Shakespeare wanted us to know. There are limited facts which tell about how the Hamlet’s kingdom was prior to the murder and marriage.
