His sisters, First Corinthians and Lena, whom author Toni Morrison keeps in the background of the novel’s main events, are suddenly transformed into deep, complex characters. The two sisters, who have spent their lives in Dr. Foster’s parlor making fake roses, refuse to be aristocratic sweatshop workers any longer. The fact Corinthians works as a maid even though she has acquired a college degree does not make her feel inferior but rather it liberates her socially.

Explore the presentation of women in ‘A Woman of No Importance’ in light of the conversation between Kelvil and Lady Hunstanton (Lines 178-185) Morality is a fundamental theme within Wilde’s ‘A Woman of No Importance’.
