About the Book
Published and premiered at London's Haymarket Theatre in 1893, Oscar Wilde's play A Woman of No Importance focuses on the attitudes of English high society. It further elicits the problems faced by women in a highly prejudiced and hypocritical society. The poor opinion held by men of the women is portrayed through the dialogue of the main character, Illingworth who says, ""Beautiful women never have time. They are always so occupied in being jealous of other people's husbands"".
About the Author
An eminent Irish playwright, novelist and poet, Wilde belonged to the late Victorian Era. Known for his role in Aesthetic and Decadent movements and his barbed wit, he was imprisoned on account of gross indecency for writing on taboo subjects.
