Painters like Gustave Doré, Luke Fildes or Mary Osborne represented the Victorian society in their realistic paintings in order to criticize it : full of injustice, this society was hypocritical and forced people to follow the rules to be decent ; the poor, the women and the children being the victims of this era. Oscar Wilde, who was a novelist, a poet and a playwright also described this society. In 1895, he published The importance of being earnest : a trivial comedy for serious people, a play that was represented at the St James theatre in London.
