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"".

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 3,0, Universität Hamburg (Institut für Anglistik und Amerikanistik), Veranstaltung: Hauptseminar Oscar Wilde - Plays, Prose and Poems, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Sittenkomödie1 A Woman of No Importance (1894) handelt von Mrs. Rachel Arbuthnot, die als junges Mädchen von Lord Illingworth verführt worden ist und ihren gemeinsamen Sohn Gerald alleine groß zieht. Sie verschweigt Lord Illingworth die Identität ihres Sohnes, sodass weder Vater noch Sohn das jahrelange Leid der Mutter nachempfinden können. Gerald ist schockiert, als seine Mutter ihn anfleht, sich gegen seine Karriere als Sekretär bei Lord Illingworth zu entscheiden. Erst als Lord Illingworth sich Hester Worsley, der Angebeteten seines Sohnes, sexuell annähert, entschließt Gerald sich, den Kontakt zu seinem Vater fortan zu meiden. A Woman of No Importance (1894) übt ähnlich wie Wildes drei weitere Komödien Lady Windermere's Fan (1892), An Ideal Husband (1895) und The Importance of Being Earnest (1895) scharfe Kritik an der viktorianischen Gesellschaft. In allen vier Social Comedies zeigt Wilde den Konflikt zwischen dem Individuum und der Gesellschaft auf, worauf in Kapitel 3 näher eingegangen wird. In der vorliegenden Hausarbeit wird dargelegt und analysiert, wie die viktorianische Gesellschaft von Wilde in A Woman of No Importance präsentiert, karikiert und kritisiert wird. Dabei ist von Relevanz, welche gesellschaftlichen Gegebenheiten und Bedingungen von Wilde kritisiert werden und welche dramenspezifischen Methoden er zur Untermauerung der Kritik wählt. Zunächst werden die Stock Figures vorgestellt und analysiert und des Weiteren wird aufgezeigt, inwieweit Wilde mit Hilfe der rekurrenten Motive im Drama einen weiteren Grundstein zur Kritik an der viktorianischen Gesellschaft gelegt hat. Im letzten Kapitel wird darauf eingegangen, welche Rolle die Woman with a Past Mrs. Arbuthnot und die Puritanerin Hester unter dem Gesichtspunkt des Konfliktes zwischen dem Individuum und der Gesellschaft spielen.

This series presents students with a library of outstanding plays, many of which are otherwise unobtainable, or available only in out-of-date or unannotated editions. The texts are newly edited, with modernized spelling and punctuation where appropriate; and there are scholarly introductions and annotation. Oscar Wilde was already one of the best-known literary figures in Britain when he was persuaded to turn his extraordinary talents to the theatre. Between 1891 and 1895 he produced a sequence of distinctive plays which spearheaded the dramatic renaissance of the 1890s, and retain their power today. The social comedies, Lady Windermere's Fan, A Woman of No Importance, and An Ideal Husband, offer a moving as well as witty dissection of society and its morals, with a sharp focus on sexual politics. By contrast, the experimental, symbolist Salome, written originally in French, was banned for public performance by the English censor. Wilde's final dramatic triumph was his 'trivial' comedy for serious people, The Importance of Being Earnest, arguably the greatest farcical comedy in English.

The play premi�red on 19 April 1893 at London's Haymarket Theatre. Like Wilde's other society plays, it satirizes English upper class society. It has been performed on stages in Europe and North America since his death in 1900. The play opens with a party on a terrace in Lady Hunstanton's estate. The upper class guests spend the better part of Act I exchanging social gossip and small talk. Lady Caroline Pontrefact patronizes an American visitor, Hester Worsley, and proceeds to give her own opinion on everyone in the room (and her surrounding life). Lady Caroline also denounces Hester's enthusiasm for Gerald Arbuthnot until Gerald himself enters to proclaim that Lord Illingworth, a powerful, flirtatious male political figure intends to take him under his wing as secretary. This is great news for Gerald, as being Lord Illingworth's secretary would be the young man's first step to a life of financial/political success. The guests then discuss the rumors surrounding Lord Illingworth's aim for being a foreign ambassador, while Lady Hunstanton sends a letter through her footman to Gerald's mother, inviting her to the party.

If there's one thing that everyone has an opinion about it's how to bring up a child - especially your child. Kate Konopicky found herself an embattled mother, knowing that however hard she worked everything was wrong. If she went back to full-time employment she was neglecting her child. If she stayed at home the child would be clingy and shy. So, she became a combination of teacher, nurse, nutritionist, psychologist, entertainer and mind reader. She didn't get weekends off and never phoned in sick when she wanted a lie-in. The boss was illogical, demanding, incapable of undertaking the simplest task. Yes, we've all had jobs like that but at least we got paid for them. Kate Konopicky is an anarchic voice in the face of regimented parenting books. With brilliant humour, she'll make you believe you're not a failure when your fairy cakes don't rise, and you'll slowly come to realise that you may not be perfect but that you are doing your best. 'A wildly irreverent look at the parenting game. This riotous look back over her first five years of motherhood will come as a relief to imperfect parents everywhere - in other words, to all parents.' You Magazine

I've just started re-reading this play and I think it is one of the most beautiful works Wilde ever wrote. Mrs. Arbuthnot's speech at the end of Act Four, beginning 'men don't know what mothers are' is one of the most beautiful pieces I've ever read in Wilde. It's a very ironic speech, considering it was written by a man, but it shows what a wonderful insight into women Wilde had. The play is essentially about morality and the conflict between a person's own, private sense of morality and the moral values imposed on us by society. Ultimately, Mrs. Arbuthnot is the character who most deserves our respect, precisely because she refuses to buy into the moral values of those around her. Reading it, I can just imagine how it would be performed, I even find myself acting the play out in my head, such is the power and force of Wilde's dialogue. This is a truly beautiful work which I highly recommend.
