• Ireland
The Republic of Ireland is the official description of the
sovereign state which covers approximately five-sixths of
the island of Ireland, off the coast of north-west Europe.
The state's official name is Ireland (in the Irish language:
Éire) and this is how international organisations and
residents usually refer to the country. It is a member of the
European Union, has a developed economy and a
population of slightly more than 4.2 million. The remaining
sixth of the island of Ireland is known as Northern Ireland
and is part of the United Kingdom.

• The Importance of Being Earnest, a
play by Oscar Wilde
This play was a great triumph since its first performance.
Earnest is free of any melodrama; it brought irony, satire and verbal
witt to English drama. Yet follows an unusually clever plotline, where
alter egos adopt false identities while adopting the name that was
popular among women at that time, Earnest.

• Oscar Wilde and His Style
Oscar Wilde is known for his incisive and scathing attach on
Victorian values. A married father of two, fell madly in love with Lord
Alfred Douglas. Oscar Wilde was sued by the father of his lover and
inprisioned. This way hee falls from the heights of British society to
the depths of prison and exile. Oscar Wilde was the first famous
homosexual in history.
One of the 19th century’s greatest contributors to literature, his
epigrams are endlessly quoted. His paradoxical parables remain
inprint, most notably The Picture of Dorian Gray.
In his play Salome, Wilde applies the musical technique of
constructing melodies by repeating words, phrases and thoughts like
musical motifs, the text is very poetic and melodic and thus suits well
for musical arrangings.
