    • Cette pièce utilise à merveille l'humour pour dénoncer l'hypocrisie de la société Victorienne, notamment en développant les thèmes de la substance contre l'essence, du déplacement des valeurs morales, et de la critique récurrente de l'institution du mariage. Facile à lire et remplie d'humour, je la conseille fortement.


    • Tout le génie et le "wit" d'Oscar Wilde est condensé dans cette pièce de théâtre qui est aussi une critique sociale de la société victorienne.L'édition Norton, qui comprend des articles universitaires et des critiques contemporaines et plus récentes, permet de mieux comprendre l'oeuvre afin d'en saisir toutes les subtilités.


    • Bonne édition. Il y a des notes à l'arrière pour mieux comprendre ou la pièce en question ou expliquer certaines remarques par rapport à l'époque ou la vie de Wilde.Pas lourd à porter donc facile à lire partout et à tout moment.
