Answers
Nora describes the Woman Upstairs as an unmarried school teacher who is approaching forty without having accomplished anything she set out to do. She is also a ‘dutiful daughter,’ who is a good member of the community, but Nora finds that there is a certain price to be paid, to still be the Woman Upstairs. She is open to nostalgia or regret for her unfulfilled dreams, and this literally puts her in a compromising position in relation to the people whose lives she enters. Under the serene and reliable exterior of the woman upstairs, Nora, or Messud, exposes an ocean of sentimentalities, and a seething set of resentments.
