Blurb/Shorttext:
Oscar Wilde lived in an age which prided itself on its moral virtue, especially when it came to the institution of marriage. The Victorians projected an image of a happy home free of corruption. However, Wilde exposed the truth behind this façade, attacking family life in Victorian society. He presents us with the reality of marriage in that hypocritical age which was anything but idyllic. This book takes a closer look at his works, focusing on his fairy tales, novel, and plays, and traces the development of the theme of the broken home in connection to the larger theme of sin, crime, and evil. The analysis should help shed light on the failures that infected Victorian families and on the emergence of the evil New Woman who served as a catalyst in the break-down of the home. It should also be especially useful to fans of Oscar Wilde who want to explore how his works portray his dive into the demonic realm.
