Oscar Wilde Musings

It has come to my recent attention that Oscar Wilde was married. Can you imagine? Costance Lloyd must have been quite a woman! Also in light of the recent television series The Good Wife an even more remarkable woman to have remained married to him, despite estrangement over his various public liasons. Well, perhaps she was more of a silly woman to have matained the pretence of marriage - or perhaps it gave her the freedom to bring up her children without public reproach and without the pressure to re-marry. Who knows?

Oscar Wilde is one of my absolute favourite writers, people and I adore his plays. And his words, sigh, what words!! Although to be fair, living with such a wit would be a challenge even if he wasn't interested in you as a woman.

There is a play in there somewhere, surely?!
