Reviews of : The Duchess of Padua by Oscar Wilde PDF Book
Inside this Book – Although I am a regular reader and huge fan of Oscar Wilde, I really didn’t see this kind of play coming. Although it is nearly impossible for a work of Wilde’s to not have its “Wilde-isms” (don’t worry, there are plenty in this play), the atmosphere of this play is different. As opposed to being a satirical farce like mosy of the famous plays, this is purely a melodramatic tragedy. I even sensed some Shakespearian influence here. The basic premise of this play is that a man named Guido wants revenge on the Duke of Padua, who wronged his father (I sense some influence from Hamlet…); to do this, he works for the Duke, but plans to murder him in his sleep. Furthermore, he is also involved in an affair with the Duchess of Padua, who also doesn’t like her husband.
Inside this book –The Duchess of Padua PDF Book by Oscar Wilde – Call me crazy, but I rather sort of enjoy these tragedies and melodramas of Wilde’s. They’re a bit unusual compared to his high society satires, but I’ve never been a huge fan of satirical writing. He pulls it off well, but by nature I tend to lean towards a better appreciation of tragedies and melodramas. Excuse me while I paint my fingernails black. There’s no way to not compare this to Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet; unless, of course, you’ve never read Romeo and Juliet in which case I have to ask “How is the weather on Mars, anyway?” There’s a family vendetta, a couple star-crossed lovers, and some dying and stuff.
