Meaning and analysis

Kwize Master During a conversation while playing cards with friends, Lord Darlington, who has been rejected by Lady Windermere, complains about his condition. He thus explains that men are very weak, but that some of them, by being attracted to women of such great value as Lady Windermere, are trying to elevate themselves a little.
