About the Book

Lord Arthur Savile's Crime is a brief tale by Oscar Wilde. This story was first published in The Court and Society Review, in the late 1887. The primary character, Lord Arthur Savile, is introduced to the readers by Lady Windermere with Mr. Septimus R. Podgers, a chiromantist, who peruses his palm and lets him know that it is his fate to be a killer Master Arthur needs to wed, yet concludes he has no option to do as such until he has carried out the murder. After some consideration, he gets a bomb from a cordial German revolutionary, masked as a carriage clock and sends it secretly to a far-off family member, the Dean of Chichester. At the point when the bomb goes off, in any case, the main harm done appears to be a curiosity stunt, and the Dean's child spends his evenings making little, innocuous blasts with the clock. Hopelessly, Lord Arthur agrees that his marriage plans are ill-fated, just to experience a similar palm-peruse who had told his fortune around dusk on the bank of the River Thames. Understanding the most ideal result, he pushes the man off a railing into the stream where he kicks the bucket. The story was the premise of the second piece of the three-section 1943 film, Flesh and Fantasy.
