      One should never trust a woman who tells one her real age A woman who would tell one that, would tell one anything After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one s own relations To get into the best society, nowadays, one has either to feed people, amuse people, or shock people that is all We in the House of Lords are never in touch with public opinion That makes us a civilised body Even if you have never come across these particular quotations before, you might be likely to guess correct [...]

      Mini review I ll keep this review short because I have a really long list of quotes.This one was a little sad, but it was, ironically, really hilarious too It involves family drama, scandal, an arrogant jerk responsible for all the conflict in the play, etc I enjoyed this play from beginning to end As you may expect from Oscar Wilde, it was witty and cynical through and through.However, I do have one complaint Some repetitions of quotes For example, there was one that made fun of marriage, and I [...]

      This is an 1893 play by Oscar Wilde that had a fair amount of success, although it s not regarded as one his best It s a satire on upper class English society, and of course the best thing about it is Wilde s brilliant wit It starts out a little slow but finishes with a flourish, although act IV is somewhat melodramatic 3.5 stars, but I rounded up because I m fond of Oscar Wilde.

      MRS ALLONBY The one advantage of playing with fire, Lady Caroline, is that one never gets even singed It is the people who don t know how to play with it who get burned upS ALLONBY What a througly bad man you must be LORD ILLINGWORTH What do you call a bad man MRS ALLONBY The sort of man who admires innocenceS ALLONBY Men always want to be a woman s first love That is their clumsy vanity We women have a subtle instinct about things What we like is to be a man s last romance.HESTER You love the [...]

    9. Ohana Rowen says:

      Although this certainly isn t the best Wilde play with regards to writing and comedy, it definitely contains the strongest and most critical themes Like all his plays Wilde is extremely and effectively critical of 19th century, however this play emphasises the distorted attitudes towards women.Wilde powerfully displays 19th century society s views towards women how a man can be deceitful yet admired but a woman who is unmarried and unchaste is a woman of no importance Lord Illingworth is pompous [...]

      A Woman of No ImportanceLORD ILLINGWORTH It is perfectly monstrous the way people go about, nowadays, saying things against one behind one s back that are absolutely and entirely true A Woman of No Importance is a play by Oscar Wilde which premiered on 19 April 1893 in London It is one of Oscar s society plays which satirizes the English upper class society The conversations are all about gossip and small talk, and most of the characters are shallow and viewless At the beginning of the play Lady [...]

      Saints vs Sinners The only difference between the saint and the sinner is that every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future.Gerard I want to go with Lord Illingworth, but I cannot abandon my mother.Mrs Arbuthnot You are all mine, son.Lord Illingworth You can t have him all for yourself, not any.The only sin of Mrs Arbuthnot catches up with her 20 years after she commits it She has to give up her son to the one who destroyed her life by disgracing her She has to let her only son embrace [...]

      Read as part of my omnibus The Plays of Oscar Wilde while listening to the BBC Radio 4X radio drama bbc programmes b007jr48.3.5 stars this play, while containing some excellent quips including view spoiler the famous exchange Lord Illingworth All women become like their mothers That is their tragedy Mrs Allonby No man does That is his hide spoiler , lacks the lightness of touch that characterizes An Ideal Husband and Lady Windemere s Fan Instead, Wilde seems almost to pound home his point about [...]

      It s rare, Wilde s intelligence, his arrogance in writing, and his understanding of people He fills this play, with the charm of his characters, the tragedy of them, thier boring lives at times, and their blistering reality By the end of the play, I was glad to see that Wilde had understood the women to not be the same As he had understood his men.

      Woosh That s the sound of half the by play going over my head If it hadn t been for the laugh track in this play, I wouldn t have realized a lot of it was a joke For all that, there were some real scorchers Wilde certainly had a way with words.Lord Illingworth was a prick, but he was certainly an affable pleasant dinner companion Reminded me a lot of my step father a nice guy on short acquaintance, but an absolutely unreliable selfish bastard over time He was definitely the life of the play had [...]

      Read as part of the Complete Works of Oscar Wilde I want to say that this is probably the weakest of Wilde s plays so far, and I read on that that s actually a common thought There s a lot of fun dialogue which is well fun but as far as plot goes, it doesn t really kick in until sometime later Which, when it shows up, actually feels a bit disjointed.Then the plot itself is one that he seems to have written frequently It was apparently a schtick of his It gets stale after a while.But there are st [...]

      Wilde s always good for a laugh He plays his contradictions perfectly But I always come away from his comedies feeling like I just ate a lot of candy and now I ve got a stomachache For all their cleverness, they re really quite flimsy I actually think his novel is better than all his plays its intentions run a little deeper and it stands up a little better on examination Still A Woman of No Importance is probably my favourite Wilde play, and it is, after all, so outrageously witty that I d be re [...]

    23. Boysie Freeman (not my real name, it's just my Internet name) says:

      I like Wilde, I love Wilde, I can give my kidney to Wilde, but in this drama he recycled his epigrams way too often in a less funny way No offense I m Wilde fangirl and I will hit you with my Wilde Complete Works if you ever dare to criticize The Importance of Being Earnest but this one meh, Wilde at his worst, because he was lazy I don t mind Wilde repeating himself but this play is weak to compare with An Ideal Husband or Lady Windermere s Fan.

      The secret of life is to appreciate the pleasure of being terribly, terribly deceived All love is terrible All love is a tragedy Lord Illingworth I was very young at the time We men know life too early.Mrs Arbuthnot And we women know life too late That is the difference between men and women I couldn t read a page without admiring and quoting some passage It s just an amazing way of writing

    28. Poornima says:

      This is one of the serious books from Oscar Wilde Starts with the typical Oscar Wilde satire, but quickly gets serious Found myself rooting for Mrs.Arbuthnot strong and sensible woman Some of the thoughts elicited here against the differential attitude in the society towards men and women would have surely been ahead of its times almost feminist in nature.What is pitiful though is that, not much has changed today in most societies.Definitely worth a read

      I read this before, but I listened a L.A Theatre Works version today It was well played
