summary An Ideal Husband ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ´ [Read] ➲ An Ideal Husband ➮ Oscar Wilde – Although Oscar Wilde 1854–1900 created a wide range of poetry essays and fairy tales and one novel in his brief tragic life he is perhaps best known as a dramatist His witty clever drama popuMail scheme that forces a married couple to reexamine their moral standards providing along the way a wry commentary on the rarity of politicians who can claim to be ethically pure A supporting cast of young lovers society matrons an overbearing father and a formidable femme fatale continually exchange sparkling repartee keeping the play moving at a lively. The first positive thing I can say about Wilde's 'An Ideal Husband' is that it includes such grand descriptive details that for the most part I could almost hear an imaginary audience praising him under their breaths This play first performed in 1899 was a joyous and light read full of fancy frocks and plush behaviour but also weighed down with the problem of misogyny with several references to male superiority It was a time when being a woman came with many pitfalls I felt for them back then sadly still do now in the 21st century To think out there right now they still have to put up with this shit Deplorable Anyway onto the playIn essence this is a keyhole view of a high society grappling with the notions of what a marriage stands for featuring deep characters that feel truly believable it opens with a dinner party held in London's fashionable Grosvenor Suare by House of Commons member Sir Robert Chiltern the gathering includes his wife Gertrude friend Lord Goring and others There is a blackmail incident involving a Mrs Cheveley who knows some dodgy things about Sir Robert's past to do with a Cabinet secret A problematic situation takes shape For Lady Chiltern their marriage is predicated on her having an ideal husband—that is a model spouse in both private and public life that she can worship Robert has a dilemma does he remain truthful to his wife and tell of his guiltPoor old Robert is eventualy exposed by Mrs Cheveley his wife then denounces her husband and refuses to forgive him From here on in cue womanizing political corruption the resurfacing of a diamond brooch that comes into play complications arising from a note found leading to thoughts of an affair plus a Vengeful act out to destroy But fear not there is happy endingMany of the themes where influenced by the situation Wilde found himself in during the early 1890s regarding his own fears and stressing the need to be forgiven of past sins and the irrationality of ruining lives of great value to society because of people's hypocritical reactions to those sins Also the position of women in society was criticised by theatre analysers as overt sexism easy to see why after it's disclosed A man's life is of value than a woman's There is also an expression of anti upper class sentiments on behalf of most of the characters where the overall portrayal displays an attitude of hypocrisy and strict observance of silly little rules that needn't apply A humorous read it was but still carried with it serious undertones No doubts this worked wonders on the stage Very good

I'm going to say this for the millionth time Oscar Wilde is a freaking genius Everything he writes is pure gold I love his sense of humour and his writing He was a great man treated badly by the society in which he lived and a great writer too I wish I could let him know thatThis play was as foolish as the previous one I read and even when I enjoyed that one this one was good all the same The plot follows some particular characters that are all married or being proposed marriage It involves some blackmailing and witty comments about the Victorian societyI laughed out loud with this play a lot You would not believe how red my face was after so much laughing Seriously it was ridiculous I can't even But that's great It says a lot about an author who wrote a comedy for people a century back that can make a teenage girl in the 21st century have so much fun with one of his works It screams brilliant all over the wayAnyway I wanted to keep this review short because 1 I want you to experience this for yourself without me spoiling any details and 2 because I have an enormous list of uotesIf you have not read this I don't know what you have been doing with your life Read this ASAP because Wilde is not joking one of my favourite authors and not only mine but of many people tooNow here's the obligatory list of uotesLADY BASILDON Ah I hate being educatedMRS MARCHMONT So do I It puts one almost on a level with the commercial classes doesn't itMy laughter could not be contained after reading thatOh I love London Society I think it has immensely improved It is entirely composed now of beautiful idiots and brilliant lunatics Just what Society should beSee why I love his sense of humouruestions are never indiscreet Answers sometimes areI agreeYou see it is a very dangerous thing to listen If one listens one may be convinced; and a man who allows himself to be convinced by an argument is a thoroughly unreasonable personI think I read something similar to that in another bookOh I like tedious practical subjects What I don't like are tedious practical peopleMe neitherEvery man of ambition has to fight his century with its own weapons What this century worships is wealth The God of this century is wealth To succeed one must have wealth At all costs one must have wealthAfter than one hundred years this still applies to nowadays societyI am always saying what I shouldn't say In fact I usually say what I really think A great mistake nowadays It makes one so liable to be misunderstoodIf Wilde knew how many times I have thought thatIt is not the perfect but the imperfect who have need of loveTruthTold you it was an enormous list of uotes didn't IPS I've now made it my new goal to read all of his works this year First Shakespeare now Oscar Wilde Here we go And fyi I have not finished my Shakespeare challenge yet but who cares I got this new obsession and I will not stay calm until I read all of Wilde's books
