An Ideal Husband


Wilde's 1895 comedy revolving around blackmail and political corruption. Sir Robert Chiltern, a Government minister who built his fortune on a single dishonest act, is blackmailed by Mrs Cheveley, who wants his assistance in another dishonest scheme. Chiltern asks Lord Goring, the ne'er-do-well son of the Earl of Caversham, for advice, and Lord Goring, familiar (in several ways) with Mrs Cheveley, ultimately saves Chiltern's marriage and social position. By doing so, he ironically ends up married.
