The play included a number of themes because Oscar found some influences by the situation during the 1980s. Here Oscar may have been talking about his own circumstances and his worries related to his matters which are still a secret. Other of his themes involves the womenís position in society. Another aspect in the play is about anti-aristocratic sentiments. Lady Markby and Lady Basildon are time after time portrayed as ridiculously two-faced, talking about one thing at a moment, then spinning it around and saying something very opposite. The overall depiction of the higher class of England shows an attitude of insincerity and severe observation to impractical rules. The Dramatis Personae include The Earl of Caversham, Mr. Montford, K.G, Phipps, Mason and Lady Chiltern among others. The plot of the play opens at a dinner party in Sir Robert Chilternís home in Grosvenor Square, a Londonís fashionable place.
