Murder is quite a big deal and would definitely go under as being the bad guy. She also feels superior to everyone so she sticks her nose up to everything and treats others below her because of her family’s former position in the town.

Ernest, who is still known as Jack at the moment, is struck at how heartless Algernon’s behavior is when he “sits there, calmly eating muffins when they’re in this horrible trouble”(Wilde 68). While it may not be his true name, Jack fits Ernest characteristics just as well when Jack takes his chance to talk to Gwendolen for her hand in marriage. Now, asking for someone's hand in marriage is great and all, but in Jack’s eyes, you don’t mention something as “small” as having a ward at your country home, which may cause a problem. When Algernon asks if he’d said anything, his only excuse was that “the truth isn’t quite the sort of thing one tells to a nice, sweet, refined girl”(Wilde 30). Way to sugar coat it, Jack.

Nothing ceased me snappier than taking a gander at the "fat" bloke in the photos. Try not to envision me as some sort of narcissist either! Nothing could be further from reality. With three children and a spouse in the family unit there was no time for that, trust you me. It wasn 't surprising to see mustaches and wavy wigs penned on my "inspiration" pictures scattered around the "threat focuses" in the house.
