About the Book

Lord Illingworth wants to hire Gerald Arbuthnot, a charismatic and flirty male politician, as his secretary. The first scene of the play takes place at a party on a patio on Lady Hunstanton's estate, and the high-class visitors spend the majority of Act I exchanging small chats and social gossip. After some small conversation, they get to discuss Hester's puritanical outlook and her need for privacy.
The wealthy women learn that Gerald is the illegitimate child of a scandalous single mother and an aristocracy. Her son is all she has, she begs him to leave him alone.
Gerald speaks highly of his mother and wonders why she has never told him about his father as Act III starts. The drama examines a wide range of topics, including humor, tragedy, savages, and global culture. In the last scene, Gerald tries to take his mother home when she requests him to do so. Gerald arrives home alone and is upset that his mother won't acknowledge him as her son. Hester departs to avoid her judgmental mother when he brings his mother home.
With the intention of seeing Mrs. Arbuthnot, Lady Hunstanton and Mrs. Allonby are seen entering. When the maid informs them that she has a headache, the two quickly leave after complimenting her taste.

About Author

Oscar Wilde

Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde, also known as Oscar Wilde, was an Irish poet and playwright who lived from 16 October 1854 to 30 November 1900. He wrote in a variety of genres throughout the 1880s before becoming one of London's most well-known playwrights in the early 1890s. The Picture of Dorian Gray, his plays and epigrams, as well as the circumstances surrounding his meningitis-related early death at age 46 and criminal conviction for gross indecency for consensual homosexual activities in "one of the earliest celebrity trials," is what people will remember him for most. Anglo-Irish intellectuals in Dublin, Wilde's parents were. French and German were picked up by young Wilde with ease. While in college, Wilde read the Greats and distinguished himself as an outstanding student of classical literature, first at Trinity College Dublin and then at Oxford. He became involved with the aestheticism movement, which was being spearheaded by two of his professors, Walter Pater and John Ruskin. Wilde moved to London after finishing college and became a part of rich social and cultural circles. Queensberry intended to publicly humiliate Wilde by tossing a bouquet of decaying vegetables onto the stage, but Wilde was informed and had Queensberry turned away from the theater.
