During that time, the expected role of men and women are different, men were expected to be a bread winner and women just expected to be a house wife. However, Ibsen believes these roles limit individual freedom and his play “A Doll’s House” explores the belief that duty to self in more important, and must come before duty to others. The beliefs in 19thcentury and values are different from now. In that time, women’s personal growth and freedom are limited. At that time, a woman’s life is just like passing from her father’s hand to her husband’s.
Is a caring mother one that gives into her sons affinity towards female accessories and the like? Or one who resists and refuses to allow their son to be more like “normal” boys? Based on the evidence in this poem it can be determined that the Narrator can be considered the “good mother” in this situation. Becoming a mother doesn't come with a manual, it is the hardest job any woman can “sign up” for but at the end of the day it is the most rewarding. Often times through motherhood, difficult situations pertaining to ones child come up causing a mother to make difficult decisions.

In the poem “Singh Song!”, the poet uses repetition to show the persona of Singh as being very personal and intimate when he spends the little time that he has with his “newly bride”. The repetition of the word “baby” tells the reader that Singh is happy being married to his wife and that he gives her a high status in his life. The repetition of “my bride” is triple refrained which perhaps suggests that Singh has a surprising nature about his wife. This creates an interesting character as it tells us that he is willing to stop working and go against his father’s orders just to spend time with his wife. Despite the criticism he receives from his customers, Singh seems to hold his wife as a major and main priority in his life and could suggest that his emotional and mental wellbeing depends on his wife.

But Jody was set on it.
