Lady Jane Francesca Wilde (1821-1896) is today best known as the
mother of Oscar Wilde (1854-1900), but in her lifetime was famous
in her own right as a fervent supporter of Irish Nationalism. After
the death of her husband in 1876, Lady Wilde wrote to support
herself, her other works including essays, literary criticism and
travel writing. She was also a strong supporter of feminism and the
campaign for female suffrage and legal rights. This volume, first
published in 1893, contains a collection of essays on various
topics of importance to Lady Wilde, including feminism, good
manners and aesthetic clothing, with short biographies of Irish
Nationalist leaders. This volume was Lady Wilde's last published
work, and provides a valuable example of her writing style and the
influence of the aesthetic movement on social behaviour. For more
