    Erlynne finds the note and, realizing that her daughter is about to make the same mistake she did as a young woman, takes the note with her and goes to find Lady Windermere. Erlynne and that the rumor of his infidelity has already spread through London society. When Lord Windermere comes home, Lady Windermere confronts him about what she has found, but her husband denies cheating on her. The Duchess calls Agatha inside and the Duchess remarks that she looks forward to seeing the young Australian Mr. When he leaves the mansion, she and Darlington by chance see him dismiss his chauffeur and take a taxi instead. Meanwhile, Mrs.

    Now that they are alone, and being owed a favour, Mrs Erlynne demands that Lady Windermere not reveal the truth about the events of the previous night to Lord Windermere, and Lady Windermere promises to keep the secret. Finally, she does not seem to be very involved in the life of her child, who is not seen onstage once during the show, though this does not seem to be out of the norm for any of the play's characters. It would seem that Wilde's complex characterization of Lady Windermere speaks further to his distaste for moral absolutism. She tells Parker that she will accept his visit and emphasizes that Parker should tell anyone who comes by that she is at home. Lord Windermere enters and asks Lady Windermere to speak with him, but she brushes him off.

    Lady Windermere refuses, so Lord Windermere invites her himself. Lady Windermere leaves in disgust to prepare for the party, and Lord Windermere reveals in soliloquy that he is protecting Mrs Erlynne's true identity to save his wife extreme humiliation. James's, Wilde was targeting a fashionable, upper-middle class audience and Wilde maps out the geography of their world, Grosvenor SquareCurzon Streetthe park, with precision. I am his wife, I have a right to look! Following the departure of the Duchess, Lady Windermere decides to check her husband's bank book.
