A Woman of no importance by Oscar Wilde( Book )

in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

'A Woman of No Importance' fuses comedy of manners with high melodrama, a serious protest against gender inequality ornately framed with perfect witticisms. At Lady Hunstanton's country house party, the quips are dazzling and the company is impeccably sophisticated - but beneath the laconic wit of society's elite is brewing a turbulent drama of social double standards and sexual hypocrisy. Gerald Arbuthnot is a young man on the make, with an American heiress and the post of secretary to the brilliant but dissolute Lord Illingworth within his reach. But when he asks his mother to celebrate with them, it is discovered that Lord Illingworth is Gerald's father, who seduced and abandoned his mother twenty years earlier. Horrified to find her son singing the praises of her seducer, Mrs Arbuthnot refuses to allow Gerald to continue in his service, and Gerald must choose between his wronged mother and a glittering career. Oscar Wilde's society comedy was first staged at the Haymarket theatre in London in 1893

Ce drame en un acte et en prose a été écrit directement en français en 1891, publié en 1893, puis traduit en anglais par O. Wilde. Le choix du français est lié à la fois à l'importance du mythe de Salomé dans la littérature française, au désir de Wilde de voir Sarah Bernhardt interpréter le rôle-titre, et à son amour pour cette langue
