In the book “The Dolls House” written by Katherine Mansfield,there is a lot of class discrimination between children at a school. The book starts when the rich kids get a doll house that is perfect in every way, and tell all the girls at school, but it reeks of nasty paint, which I think symbolises that the rich seem perfect on the outside, but are ill and corrupt on the inside. I think that this short story reconizes, that the class discrimination is driving the poor lower classed kids into the ground since there being treated like dirt. later on one of the the rich kids decide to sneaks the poor into the yard to see  the doll house, which I think symbolises rebelion.
