In my opinion, Nora is a tragic heroine. It seems like she gave up a lot, including her old self to try to make things better for her and her husband Torvald. I would not compare Oedipus or Othello to Nora because I felt more pitty for her than to Othello and Oedipus. That is, because she did not kill to get what she wanted, she simply black mailed but had not intentions of killing anyone but herself. She didn't want to keep living life the way she was knowing she was going to get exposed by Krogstad for borrowing money which was pretty much for Torvald. Othello and Oedipus seem selfish compared to Nora. Both men killed for their own pleasure, one for pay back and the other for a woman whereas Nora only tried to help her husband
