The Importance of Being E(a)rnest- and Oscar Wilde as a driving force in the Fin de Siécle….

Screen Shot 2019-05-11 at 10.45.37 amThis week we explored the world of Oscar Wilde, especially his trenchant, satiric, criticism of the Victorian Age. We had the great good fortune to watch David Suchet play the role of Lady Bracknell in this play. He transforms Lady Bracknell into the grotesque image of the upper middle class that Oscar Wilde was so intolerant of.

Please find here the audio for the lecture for Week 10 and link this to the slides that are posted into LEO- enjoy!
