REVIEW Æ SJMEDIA.CO Ï Oscar Wilde

REVIEW º The Importance of Being Earnest Gwendolen thinks that she loves Ernest Cecily thinks that she loves Ernest too But who is. We live in an age of ideals Wilde is a genius This play is genius What a penetrating critiue of high Victorian society this becomes but rather than being a dull argument or essay it takes on the body of a hilarious play This is just absurd outrageous and straight to the point This picture says it all to meJack undergoes a great deal of social mobility prior to the events of the play however Bracknell who represents the rigidness of British aristocracy is very alarmed that such a man could marry her daughter He is not worthy enough When Jack explains the details of the train line he was left at she ironically exclaims The line is immaterial And that such a marriage would remind her of the worst excesses of the French revolution The dialogue is utterly genius The best thing about it is that the characters are completely unaware of their own absurd hypocrisy The train line doesn t matter but his bloodline does Bracknell loves money It s one of the only reasons she actually listens to Jack s reuest to marry her daughter Later she becomes suddenly interested in Cecily after learning of her inheritance It means there could be money for the rich It is one of the key things on her ideal husband list for Gwendolyn It s also key element of the play that demonstrates the absurdity of her class but it is second only to the importance of appearance Money is great but if you look like a fool in society then you re ruined Through this Wilde is demonstrating the ridiculous nature of Victorian morality and how concerned it is with a perfect societal image Bracknell s daughter could not be seen forming an alliance with a handbag Marriage is simply a business transaction a way to improve one s wealth and station There is nothing for the Bracknell s in such an alliance love simply does not enter the uestion The possible increase in wealth is overshadowed by tarnishing the family name This is an opinion earlier mentioned by Algernon Whilst social mobility is possible in Wilde s play it is resented by those that are the established elite regardless of their own meagre origins Hypocrisy reigns supreme Never speak disrespectfully of Society Algernon Only people who can t get into it do that Algernon and Jon both become gluttonous towards food This demonstrates the greed that permeates the morale fabric of Victorian society as neither of these men actually actively work and they just spend their time self indulging through their respective false identities They simply consume without producing in their self aggrandised manners The rich have a sense of false entitlement that Wilde uestions heroically he demonstrates that the supposed morale fabric that governs higher society is completely false it is a trick a mere appearance whilst the members live secret lives My duty as a gentleman has never interfered with my pleasures in the smallest degree And here comes the crux of the play The persona of Earnest becomes a means of escape for Jack and later Algernon it becomes a means for letting loose and maintaining his position within society He can bare all the graces of a Victorian gentleman the perfects ideal but he can also have fun The living of double lives suggests the strictness of society and the lengths the members could take to momentarily escape its rigid bounds This also suggests the ease to which they can shift between the public and private sectors of their personalities It s not hard to pretend It s not hard to go bumbrying There s some extensive doubling going on At times it reminded me of Shakespeare s wonderful Twelfth Night and at other points there were undertones of Wilde s masterpiece The Picture of Dorian Grey The Victorians judged people on their appearance and their supposed morale character So what do you do if you have a slightly deviant nature You can t let yourself be ruined within society That s paramount to death So a fictional alter ego is the perfect excuse to go and indulge But lies always catch up with people it was obvious that this would end in an explosion of realisations Thus everything becomes perfectly inverted Morality and the constraints it imposes on society is a favourite topic of conversation The characters have some rather hilarious notions as to what is right and what is wrong Reading a cigarette case is an ungentlemanly act culture is dependent on what one shouldn t read and Algernon thinks the servant class has a responsibility to set a moral standard for the upper classes Bracknell takes on the role of clan patriarch and the men have typical female traits whilst the women become active in seeking their ideal husband At times they say things that make absolutely no sense but such is the nature of ideals It s all incredibly comic The point is that people can become so enamoured so uickly with an ideal that doesn t exist They want perfection not a reflection of the real person It s Wilde s perfect demonstration of how stupid Victorian society was It s a fun play but there are serious undertones It s an effective critiue of society very much set down in the way he argued good criticism should be in his essay The Critic as Artist Wilde is an artist and this is a fine critiue It s immensely clever and hilarious in the processFacebook Twitter Insta Academia Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global
