Ah... Du Oscar Wilde...
Je dois avouer que j'appréhendais assez la lecture de ce livre, et avant tout pour son genre: le théâtre. Pour moi, le théâtre n'a jamais eu grand intérêt à être lu et existe d'abord pour être VU.
Mais la qualité de l'écriture, sa fluidité et les thèmes abordés font qu'on s'accroche à l'histoire jusqu'au bout. Et j'ai été la première surprise à trouver la lecture en fin de compte agréable. Dans "An Ideal Husband", ce sont ses valeurs personnelles que chacun remet en cause: l'intégrité, l'amour-propre et la fidélité (à soi même) sur fond de mondanité et de chantage... Une petite perle et un classique.
Alors à tous les réticents, sachez que du Oscar Wilde c'est toujours bon.

Chiltern: "You prefer to be natural?" 2 décembre 2005
Par wiredweird - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Chevely: "Sometimes. But it is such a difficult pose to keep up."

Perhaps not so well known as "The Importance of Being Earnest," this has all the same banter, manners, and sharp-eyed look at the crumbling edge of the upper crust in Vistorian England. It pleases the attentive listener at many levels. Considered only as a stream of one-liners and clever quips, it delivers all you could ask for.

But because it's Wilde, it's also a wild tirade against the mannered (sometimes ill-mannered) gentry. Behind that, it has a good deal to say about tolerance for the flaws of any fallible human - and Wilde could speak on human flaws with rare authority. And, like any truly great work, its examination of honesty (and dis-) reveals a good bit about today's world, a century later.

I'm not normally a reader of plays. I don't have that inner ear that brings words on the page to life. Wilde gives me some idea what that experience must be like, and I'm grateful for it.

One of the great masterpieces of English Drama 20 mars 2005
Par Gary Selikow - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
My very favourite of Oscar Wilde's plays. Choc-a-bloc with wit, and humorous repartee, it also is an intriguing story, and fascinating to see how it plays out. No wonder it is still popular 112 years after is first produced with recent productions on video/DVD doing very well.

Member of Parliament Lord Robert Chiltern is blackmailed by the wicked Mrs. Cheverly, with a secret from his youth, leading to a crisis in his life, and in his marriage to the virtuous Lady Chiltern. It is up to his friend, the delightfully foppish Lord Goring to help extricate him. All is well that ends well, but not after much interplay and intrigue.

Every word in this play is well measured out for one of the great masterpieces of English Drama.

Love, politics and forgiveness 26 mai 2003
Par Jacques COULARDEAU - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Oscar Wilde gives us here one of his best plays. He explores the political world in London and how a young ambitious but poor man can commit a crime, which is a mistake, to start his good fortune. But he builds his political career on ethical principles. Sooner or later someone will come into the picture to blackmail him into supporting an unacceptable scheme, by producing a document that could ruin his career if revealed. His past mistake may come back heavily onto him. But he resists and sticks to his moral reputation. He prefers doing what is right to yielding to some menace. He may lose though his political ambition and career and his wife's love. But love is saved by forgiveness and the man's career is also saved by the work of a real friend who recaptures the dubious document and destroys it. In other words love and an ethical career are saved by the burrying of the old mistake into oblivion. In other words love and friendship are stronger than the scheming action of a blackmailer. This is a terrible criticism of victorian society which is based more on appearances than principles and yet able to destroy a man's absolutely ethical present life with a mistake from his youth, throwing the baby along with the water of the bath. It is also a criticism of the victorian political world where you cannot have a career if you are not rich, money appearing as the only way to succeed, at least to succeed fast. But it is a hopeful play because love and friendship are beyond such considerations and only consider the best interest of men and women, in the long run and in the name of absolute purity. Better be a sinner and be forgiven when you have reformed than see a reformed sinner destroyed by the lack of forgiveness. Oscar Wilde advocates here a vision of humanity that necessitates forgiveness as the essential fuel of any rational approach. Real morality is not the everlasting guilt of a sinner without any possible reform. Real morality is the recognition that forgiveness is necessary when reform has taken place. Otherwise society would be unlivable and based on hypocrisy and the death or rejection of the best people in the name of (reformed) mistakes. One must not be that sectarian, because man can learn from his mistakes and improve along the road : one can learn how to avoid mistakes and repair those oen has committed. If condemnation is absolute, no progress is possible. A very fascinating play, a very modern play. And yet when can one be considered as reformed, when can we consider one has really corrected one's mistakes and improved ? And who can deem such elements ? The very core of political and ethical rectitude is concerned here and Oscar Wilde embraces a generous approach.

I like the movie better... 29 janvier 2011

I don't really like saying that I like movies better, but I do. The movie was great. It propelled me to read the play and although I like it, I still like the movie better. It is funny (the book) and it has a lot more of a history for a lot of characters that the movie didn't have the time to get into. It was a good read.
An Ideal Husband 19 novembre 2009

This is a great play, the things that happen with the characters is extremley funny because it deals with morality and marital issues that still exist. The play is set in the late 1800s early 1900s in England. It is a perfect example of how we over anaylize things in society and that if we just "let go" of what an ideal relationship is we will see that the acceptance of two individuals is the foundation for a healthy, long lasting relationship and that there really is no princess or prince charming. What I found to be the funniest thing about it is that the one character who naturally got this without a scandel came off to me as being the most shallow and superfical of the characters. Mabel really has no substance to her, she's not very bright and loves being scolded. Yet at the end of everything is the only one who doesnt waist time trying to anaylize everything that goes on in her relationships with people. I guess we all can learn something from those different from us after all.
