Product Description

Il ventaglio di Lady Windermere/Lady Windermere's Fan - Oscar Wilde

Letteratura universale Marsilio - Elsinore - Italian Parallel Text

Edited by Paolo Amalfitano

Paperback, 288 pages

Each volume in this series presents a classic of English literature with a new Italian translation on the facing page, as well as an extensive introduction, information about the text and the author, in-depth annotations, and a complete bibliography, all in Italian.

The story concerns Lady Windermere, who suspects that her husband is having an affair with another woman. She confronts him with it but although he denies it, he invites the other woman, Mrs Erlynne, to his wife's birthday ball. Angered by her husband's supposed unfaithfulness, Lady Windermere decides to leave her husband for another lover. After discovering what has transpired, Mrs Erlynne follows Lady Windermere and attempts to persuade her to return to her husband and in the course of this, Mrs Erlynne is discovered in a compromising position. It is then revealed Mrs Erlynne is Lady Windermere's mother, who abandoned her family twenty years before the time the play is set. Mrs Erlynne sacrifices herself and her reputation to save her daughter's marriage. The best known line of the play sums up the central theme: We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.

Ciascun volume di questa collana si presenta come una monografia completa composta da un saggio introduttivo, una nuova traduzione con testo a fronte, note informative sull'autore e sull'opera, un commento essenziale, una ricca bibliografia.

Il ventaglio di Lady Windermere, rappresentata il 20 febbraio 1892 al St James's Theatre di Londra, ha riscosso un immediato successo di pubblico. È la prima delle commedie brillanti di Wilde a portare in scena l'alta società inglese, con le sue ipocrisie e la paradossale serietà dei suoi protocolli sociali. Sfruttando l'espediente del ventaglio dimenticato da Lady Windermere nel salotto di Lord Darlington, un dandy che la corteggia, la commedia si snoda attraverso una serie di equivoci, di memorabili battute e di segreti pericolosi, tutti giocati nella cornice di un fraintendimento coniugale.
