A Woman of No Importance
by Oscar Wilde (1893)
One woman bears the sin of two
Set in Victorian England on Lady Hunstanton\'s Estate, an intriguing family drama unfolds revealing closely-guarded secrets and unforgiven sins. A Woman of No Importance by Oscar Wilde satirizes the double standards between men and women in the English upper-class. Over teacups and biscuits insults are hurled and gloves are flung.
In a time when men are readily forgiven of their indiscretions, women are condemned for similar moral failings. The bravery of strong independent women brings the most surprise as Wilde voices this commentary through conversations in drawing rooms, parlors, and gardens.
