Please post either your reading notes or a picture of five separate pages with your annotations on them. I will mostly be looking for “good notes”, I know that is subjective, but I’m looking for evidence that you engaged actively with this text. Underline, highlight, define, summarize, write down questions, point out major themes, favorite quotes…..etc. It will also be helpful if you put line notes on your documents or in your notes. (Notice – this assignment is worth 100 points….that’s a lot for something we all should be doing anyway.

Formally respond to the following two questions. The responses should be between 200-250 words each.
1. One of the things Oscar Wilde is doing in the play is mocking 19th-century ideas and culture. Choose one aspect of the 19th century that he mocks and/or satirizes, explain how we does it, and then reflect on why he sees it as wrong. Be very precise in your use of the text to defend your point.
2. Oscar Wilde’s use of language in the play points toward a later 20th-century attitude that believes language incapable of meaning anything absolute. Discuss how language in the play is slippery, confusing, inconsistent, or incapable of communicating anything clearly. Use one specific passage to illustrate.
