Bentley is out to quash that hostile verdict (with its implication that a brighter, bolder woman could have held on to Wilde's wayward affections), and she does. She portrays Constance as intelligent (with a graceful if conventional prose style), esthetically sensitive (an expert on interior decoration, dress, embroidery, et., politically active (a member of the Women's Liberal Foundation)-in other words, a person of some note even before she was engulfed in one of the great tragic scandals of the fin de siÃ‰cle.

The Importance of Being Earnest, A Trivial Comedy for Serious People is a play by Oscar Wilde. First performed on 14 February 1895 at the St James's Theatre in London, it is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personae to escape burdensome social obligations. Working within the social conventions of late Victorian London, the play's major themes are the triviality with which it treats institutions as serious as marriage, and the resulting satire of Victorian ways.
