This monologue is taken from a scene between Torvald and his wife, Nora. Nora, after being blackmailed by Nils Krogstad, attempts to influence her husband to allow Krogstad to keep his position at the bank.
In this monologue, Torvald explains to Nora that Krogstad is a man of deceitful character and is therefore poisoning the minds of his children. Torvald asks Nora not to defend such a man as Krogstad.
