This fragment is a virtually-complete, one-act drama, written in 1894 in the style of Jacobean drama.
A Florentine Tragedy is a never-completed fragment of a play by Oscar Wilde. The subject concerns Simone, a wealthy 16th century Florentine merchant who finds his wife Bianca in the arms of a local prince, Guido Bardi. After feigning hospitality, Simone challenges the interloper to a duel, disarms, and strangles him. This awakens the affection of his wife, and two are reconciled.
