Victorian Post

I’ll admit, the Victorian Era was a nice period to go over and some of the work from that time were interesting and cool to read. I can’t exactly think of any of the work we went over and read from the Victorian Era at the moment, but still, there were some nice poems and short stories to read. Right now, the only thing I can think about from the Era and the reading is the “The Importance of being Earnest” play by Oscar Wilde. It was nice to read a play for a change, but it isn’t the same as seeing the play being acted out and performed.

The last time I saw a play performed and acted out in person was before Thanksgiving break in my junior year of high school and I have not seen a play since then.  Now that I have read the script of Wilde’s “The Importance of being Earnest,” I’m thinking about getting out there and seeing more plays in person, but as long as they catch my eye.  That’s just me.  I’ll see plays as long as I find them interesting and they catch my eye.  Some parts of the script of the play were interesting and kind of caught my eye. 

The part where two of the characters talked about marriage was interesting along with several different parts of the play as well.  Since it was set in the last days of Victoria’s reign as Queen of England, some of the names of the characters were interesting and the dialogue between them was interesting to read as well.  At this point, I don’t actually have a whole lot left to say about the play.  I think it was a good play to read.  The last time I read a book that was actually a play script was in high school when I read “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.”  All in all, I think it was a nice play even though some parts of it were confusing and I didn’t really get them all that much.
