Overview

Un Marido Ideal by Oscar Wilde

Si Sir Robert Chiltern es ahora Secretario de Estado de Asuntos Exteriores, es porque ha sabido mantener en secreto el origen de su fortuna: una transacción fraudulenta por la que vendió secretos de estado al Barón Arnehim. Toda la alta sociedad inglesa y sus pares de la Cámara de los Comunes lo tienen por un hombre respetable e íntegro. Símbolo de la honestidad y la competencia futuro político parece brillante, contando siempre con el respaldo de su esposa, Lady Chiltern, que lo considera el marido ideal. Sin embargo, las apariencias son engañosas y el orden social se basa únicamente en la mentira individual y colectiva. ese brillante porvenir se complica con la aparición de la señora Cheveley, "una mujer con un pasado", una mujer cuya reputación no es intachable, que somete a chantaje a Sir Robert Chiltern: o bien la ayuda en otra operación deshonesta o bien revelará su secreto, provocando un escándalo que lo cubrirá de infamia.

About the Author

The ever-quotable Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) was an Irish playwright, novelist, essayist, and poet who delighted Victorian England with his legendary wit. He found critical and popular success with his scintillating plays, chiefly The Importance of Being Earnest, while his only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, scandalized readers. Imprisoned for two years for homosexual behavior, Wilde moved to France after his release, where he died destitute.
