Applying Wilde to Wilde (100 points)
Instructions: Discuss how Wilde applies the ideas of aestheticism and the arguments from The Critic as Artist to The Importance of Being Earnest. What notions of living to the fullest exist in the play? What notions of living intensely and passionately do the characters reinforce? How is the play (as a creative work) acting as a critical work, as well? What does the work critique? This response should be around 250 to 300 words, not including the quotes. Always cite specifics from the texts.
