Product Description

Review

Classic Wilde in many respects: a comic melodrama populated by a combination of stuffy society types and devil-may-care Wildean stand-ins whose quips and paradoxical epigrams cut through the delusions and hypocrisies of their milieu. --Irish Theatre Magazine --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Imprisoned for homosexual acts, he died after his release in exile in Paris.Ian Small is a reader in English Literature at the University of Birmingham. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This famous play is bursting with dramatic irony, rhetoric strategies and humorous witticisms. Oscar Wilde produces a great play with subtle sentiment and an underlying theme regarding paternity. A great read for eng lit students and members of the public alike. I personally recommend this play to anyone in need of a good laugh. One must particularly pay attention to the character's mannerisms and use of language. And at a penny a book- bargain!!

We studied this play in for a-level english. When our teacher told us about the book, and how it was in our course i immediately thought, "oH GOD ANOTHER BOOK FROM THE DARK AGES GREAT!..everyone was moaning about it saying it seemed really boring...once we got into it..i must say how mistaken i was ...this book is worth reading! it really portrays the role of woman back in the days, and how men thought they were the dominating superior gender...and woman were seen of "no importance" whatsoever. This play also gives an insight to the class-system during that time.

Another great Wilde play. I love how he juxtaposes the trivial unthinking whims of the parodied aristocracy, with a subject of importance and weight. Somehow made to seem completely efforts on his part too.

I didn't find this play as entertaining as I hoped. The narrative is a bit monotonous. However, when I consider Oscar Wilde's life-story at the time of writing (just a few years before he was prosecuted for homosexuality) I found it interesting to identify his contempt for the aristocracy throughout this play. Also interesting is his sympathy for a woman's lot in the late 19th century.

I have never read this script or seen the play before and I feel that a lot was lost by not seeing it as a stage play. Body language, facial expressions etc. are, I feel, necessary to really appreciate this little scenario.
