Oscar Wilde: The Complete Short Stories [Book Thoughts]

An Ideal Husband by Oscar Wilde [Book Thoughts]

An Ideal Husband is one of Wilde’s stronger plays. Excellent drama, strong characters, worthwhile themes well explored and a truly heart-warming portrayal of marriage.

A Woman of No Importance by Oscar Wilde [Book Thoughts]

A Woman of No Importance is one of Oscar Wilde’s more serious and insightful plays. It’s a relatable personal drama with plenty of commentary. Short and sweet. Decent on it’s own but better enjoyed alongside his other plays where it forms a piece of a larger portrait.
