The Picture of Dorian Gray help me with homework: Oscar Wilde’s The Importance
Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest was written four years after The Picture of Dorian Gray. Though the two differ markedly in tone, they contain many similar ideas; even some of the witticisms are similar. Analyze the extent to which the practice of Bunburying in the play is a comic version of the escape from real-life responsibilities portrayed by the protagonist in the novel. What is the author’s opinion of this practice? What are its consequences in both stories? Would the teachings of Scripture support or refute Wilde’s conclusions?
