Wilde, O. (n.d.). An Ideal Husband. Retrieved from

Excerpt: FIRST ACT SCENE The octagon room at Sir Robert Chiltern?s house in Grosvenor Square. [The room is brilliantly lighted and full of guests. At the top of the staircase stands LADY CHILTERN, a woman of grave Greek beauty, about twenty?seven years of age. She receives the guests as they come up. Over the well of the staircase hangs a great chandelier with wax lights, which illumine a large eighteenth?century French tapestry?representing the Triumph of Love, from a design by Boucher?that is stretched on the staircase wall. On the right is the entrance to the music?room. The sound of a string quartette is faintly heard. The entrance on the left leads to other reception-rooms. MRS. MARCHMONT and LADY BASILDON, two very pretty women, are seated together on a Louis Seize sofa. They are types of exquisite fragility. Their affectation of manner has a delicate charm. Watteau would have loved to paint them.]
