What's Included

Oscar Wilde had a keen sense of humor and an exceptional ability to detect hypocrisy. Previously our book club enjoyed reading The Importance of Being Earnest and seeing the use Wilde made of these qualities to depict English society. We will now read his compelling play An Ideal Husband. It deals with hypocrisy and the vital need for a good reputation in political life in Victorian England. Perfection of character proves to be an elusive goal throughout this play, and much forgiveness is ultimately required by even the most "ideal" characters. Join us as we read and try to put ourselves in the place of various protagonists. We will also watch a film version of the play with a star-studded cast. Of course, we will have tea and biscuits or cookies to support us as we read and discuss.
