Between 1891 and 1895 he produced a sequence of distinctive plays which spearheaded the dramatic renaissance of the 1890s and retain their power today. The social comedies, Lady Windermere's Fan, A Woman of No Importance, and An Ideal Husband, offer a moving as well as witty dissection of society and its morals, with a sharp focus on sexual politics

Wilde was conscious that he was writing a very different kind of play, a farcical comedyadmirable for style, but fatal to handwriting, he informed Douglas.
