Has anyone done this play?
i have an essay to do on it about how effective the introduction is to the play and the way each character is portrayed.
Could you also be able to list the key themes too please!?
thanks :)

" twenty years of romance make a woman look like a ruin; but twenty years of marriage make her something like a public building"

" nothing spoils a romance so much as a sense of humour in the woman"

" the soul is born old but grows young. that is comedy of life. and the body is born young and grows old. that is life's tragedy."

A Woman of No Importance. In writing and revising this play, I believe, Wilde begins to recognize that in destablilizing the established categories of gender and gender-based ideas of morality, he and many feminists were of one mind. On the other hand he has not fully resolved, if he ever would, the differences that divided them.
