I’ve been guilty of tending to assume that modern notions of society, such as debauched youth like in this novel, are new concepts and that we’re the first generation to suffer this malady.
However, this is nothing new under the sun.
I wonder what Wilde would think of 21st century society? Would he revel in it or would he nod gravely and say, “I told you so.”
This book is also much funnier since I’m “old”.
