Dota: Manta Style Strategy On Tinker

Timeless Message of Equality in Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest

- Timeless Message of Equality in Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest   Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest satirizes Victorian society.  The witty epigrams of his characters provide light comedy masking the underlying theme of criticism of the Victorian way of life.  Wilde's effective use of humour diffuses the tense theme of his work.  In a Victorian society that emphasized progress, it was precarious for artists like Oscar Wilde to express an imperfect interpretation of life in nineteenth-century England.  Wilde's attack on the ethics of his era is an attempt to fulfill the author's prophecy that art has the power to dictate life, not merely imitate it (614-615).  At...   [tags: Importance Being Earnest Oscar Wilde Essays]

From diners to fishermen, and from bakeries to slaughterhouses, food is known by all.
