W4: 3a) Looks and physical appearances do not make love. Torvald cannot simply look at Nora through a mirror and love her, he needs to see into the mirror and go deeper, but he only sees the reflection of Nora and his surroundings. There is a soul behind a mirror, and Torvald could not see that. He did not understand Nora, and because of that their marriage did not work out. A married couple needs to truly know one another in order to fall in love. Appearances may trick you.
