"Well-Made Play" Techniques in Ibsen's A Doll's House Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House is a classic example of a modern realistic play. But is it a "well-made play?"

1. Gardner, John. GoldenEye. USA, Glidrose Publications Ltd, 1995. 218 p. 2. This book is definitely a mystery novel.

After we find out who Janus is, there's suspense because James had to not only get rid of Janus but also stop a disaster t

Ray Bradbury's fantastic imagination resulted from his past as a young boy. Bradbury was an imaginative hard working boy who lived in a small town of Waukegan, Illinois. Virtually every early description of teen-age Bradbury by a personal acquaintance speaks of unfailing ability, puncture-proof good nature, constant buffoonery, and self-effacement (Moskowitz 357).
