Collapse,you make a competent point regarding aestheticism in both Wilde andJoyce’s point of view. Firstly, it is evident that being Earnestgives Jack the chance to live in a distinct universe where all hethinks is fulfilling his needs. The created character, however, doesthings that defer with Victorian way of life, especially the socialinstitutions. Most of the characters are confined to their doingshence they will do anything to escape from reality. Like Gwendolen,Lady Bracknell seems more concerned with fulfilling her quest ratherthan the welfare of life-or-death matters of the imaginary Mr.Bunbury`s illness. Gwendolen wants to marry Earnest because she founda man with the name of her dream, but not because of love. On theother hand, Joyce’s use of music is vague and so, do her objectiveof revealing competent values of nationalism. Rather than perceivingreal motives in her work, one sees a contradiction of what peoplebelieve.
