LoRD Illingworth I don't wish to seem to interfere for a moment, Mrs Arbuthnot, but
as far as your last objection is concerned, I surely am the best judge. And I can
only tell you that your son has all the qualifications I had hoped for. He has more,
in fact, than I had even thought of. Far more. (Mrs Arbuthnot remains silent) Have
you any other reason, Mrs Arbuthnot, why you don't wish your son to accept this
post? GERALD Have you, mother? Do answer. LoRD ILLINGworth If you have,

LORD WINDERMERE. Where is she? MRS. ERLYNNE. She is very tired. She
has gone to bed. She said she had a headache. LORD WINDERMERE. I must go
to her. You'll excuse me? MRS. ERLYNNE. [Rising hurriedly.] Oh, no! It's nothing

supper-room. She wants you to make her apologies to them. She said she didn't

Consider the following passage from Lady Windermere's Fan, where Lord
Windermere has expressed a wish to go to his wife. Mrs. Erlynne wishes to
prevent this by stating she has gone to bed with a headache. Lord Windermere
insists and then Mrs. Erlynne replies, “rising hurriedly”: (34) Oh, no! It's nothing
serious. She's only very tired, that is all. Besides, there are people still in the
supper-room. She wants you to make her apologies to them. She said she didn't
wish to be disturbed.

Ah, I said, then she does not wish to marry. He look'd at me then as if he marvel'd
at what I could mean. It was not that she did not wish to marry, he explain'd, but
that she did not wish the State of Servitude on him. He had been a Slave once
and having had those Fetters once untied, she would not have him resume them.
And then as I was silent, he said he believ'd it was a Testament to her Love
toward him that she would not have him back in Bondage. I continued with
questions: oh, ...

The older woman is more than a delinquent mother, she is a delinquent
grandmother too. This occasion also coincides with Lady Windermere's twenty-
first birthday, so that the birth of Gerard rhymes precisely with Mrs Erlynne's age
at the time of giving birth to Margaret. Lord Windermere's susceptibility to
blackmail by Mrs Erlynne is motivated not just by the wish to preserve the
innocence of his wife, but by the desire to maintain the respectability of his family
line. Mrs Erlynne is, as Lord ...

'We have to walk round it three times and make a wish,' said Lucy. 'That's what
they do in Mongolia, and it always works.' 'So what are we going to wish?' 'I'm
going to wish for Bridget, not me,' said the child, suddenly serious. 'Bridget's
going to need all the luck she can get.' Once again, it was obvious that she was
quoting from an adult, even before she added, 'That's what Daddy says,' in
confirmation. Trying not to think about probable watchers from the Victorian villas

Cumberland: those ...

life repeat its tragedies? (Tears letter open and reads it, then sinks down into a
chair with a gesture of anguish.) Oh, how terrible! The same words that twenty
years ago I wrote to her father! and how bitterly I have been punished for it! No;
my punishment, my real punishment is to-night, is now! (Still seated R.) Enter
LORD WINDERMERE L.U.E. LORD meERMERE. Have you said good-night to
my wife?
