about the emperor penguin
emperors are the largest of all penguins—an average bird stands some 45 inches tall. these flightless animals live on the antarctic ice and in the frigid surrounding waters.
penguins employ physiological adaptations and cooperative behaviors in order to deal with an incredibly harsh environment, where wind chills can reach -76°f.
they huddle together to escape wind and conserve warmth. individuals take turns moving to the group's protected and relatively toasty interior. once a penguin has warmed a bit it will move to the perimeter of the group so that others can enjoy protection from the icy elements.
emperor penguins spend the long winter on the open ice—and even breed during this harsh season. females lay a single egg and then promptly leave it behind. they undertake an extended hunting trip that lasts some two months! depending on the extent of the ice pack, females may need to travel some 50 miles just to reach the open ocean, where they will feed on fish, squid, and krill. at sea, emperor penguins can dive to 1,850 feet—deeper than any other bird—and stay under for more than 20 minutes.
reproduction and parenting
male emperors keep the newly laid eggs warm, but they do not sit on them, as many other birds do. males stand and protect their eggs from the elements by balancing them on their feet and covering them with feathered skin known as a brood pouch. during this two-month bout of babysitting the males eat nothing and are at the mercy of the antarctic elements.
when female penguins return to the breeding site, they bring a belly full of food that they regurgitate for the newly hatched chicks. meanwhile, their duty done, male emperors take to the sea in search of food for themselves.
mothers care for their young chicks and protect them with the warmth of their own brood pouches. outside of this warm cocoon, a chick could die in just a few minutes. in december, antarctic summer, the pack ice begins to break up and open water appears near the breeding site, just as young emperor penguins are ready to swim and fish on their own.

the simple past tense of strive.

with mrs. linde, nora reveals her insensitivity and lack of shame about the forgery she committed. she implies that mrs. linde has obviously aged since they last met 10 years earlier, which accounts for nora’s inability to recognize her old friend. although nora seems sympathetic to mrs. linde’s plight, she can’t seem to control herself from boasting about her three children, her husband’s recent promotion, and how good she feels to finally have some money to spend. in a way, she seems to be flaunting her good fortune in front of mrs. linde who, deprived of all these benefits, has come to ask nora for . it is also through her interactions with mrs. linde that we realize something deeper lies under nora’s seemingly childish exterior. she reveals the secret of her forgery to mrs. linde and seems to see herself as quite resourceful for having done it.
in the company of dr. rank, nora is freer than she is with her own husband. she openly laughs with joy at knowing that all the other bank employees will be under her husband’s control. she offers dr. rank a macaroon, apparently forgetting that he knows she is forbidden to eat them. she then quickly covers for herself by claiming that mrs. linde brought them. nora seems much more assertive and free with these other characters, as well as unabashedly willing to scheme, lie, and justify her transgressions as altruistic.
krogstad provides an interesting parallel to nora. like nora, he too is guilty of committing forgery, for which torvald condemns him and decides to fire him. although krogstad is a man and nora a woman, their crimes of forgery unite them. in fact, krogstad might represent what nora would be like if she were a man and were not strictly scrupulous like her husband is. for example, she tells mrs. linde that "a barrister's profession is such an uncertain thing, especially if he won't undertake unsavoury cases; and naturally torvald has never been willing to do that." perhaps nora would have delved into the unsavory, given how opposite she is to her husband. krogstad's is also the only harsh voice of reality that nora is forced to hear, and that is because he blackmails her for her regaining his job at the bank. finally, torvald’s reaction to krogstad’s forgery seems to foreshadow his harsh and cold reaction to nora’s forgery.
