Lady Windermere's Fan by Oscar Wilde
In Lady Windermere's Fan a Wildean world of London's upper crust Victorian Society is portrayed, focusing on Lord and Lady Windermere--Arthur and Margaret--lovingly married for two years. Lady Windermere sees the world in black and white, never gray, good or evil, never in between. Just 21 she is about to celebrate her coming of age at a soiree to which her husband requests she invite the center of gossip Mrs. Erlynne. Margaret refuses. Arthur insists that Mrs. Erlynne be helped to gain access to Society. Events escalate in the next 24 hours through which Lady Windermere learns what truly makes a good woman. And who is Mrs. Erlynne? And what of Lady Windermere's fan? In this world of manners and morals--how things seem and how they are--it is the birthday gift and how it is handled that tells the tale.
