Abstract

The current study tries to delineate how discourse reflects our state of mind, though the state of mind is not overtly verbalized. Our ideologies, feelings, emotions and fears are hidden behind the veil of discourse. With the aim of uncovering the hidden feelings and fears in order to examine how discourse is the mirror of our state of mind, the researcher selects Fairclough’s “three-dimensional framework and apply it on Henrik Ibsen’s work, “A Doll’s House”. The paper employs only one dimension of Fairclough’s model that is descriptive. This study benefits students and teachers to get better understanding of the play and analyze it on critical grounds. The paper also presents an example of the application of “Fairclough three-dimensional model” on literary texts. It invites other researchers to carry out their researches in the present research field.
