Lord Arthur Savile's Crime
Oscar Wilde penned the short story Lord Arthur Savile's Crime in 1891. The narrative centers on Lord Arthur Savile, a charming young aristocrat engaged to Sybil Merton, a stunning socialite. However, a palm reader's prediction that he will murder someone causes a bizarre turn in his life. Lord Arthur sets out to commit the murder before his wedding to avoid any scandal that could damage his future, but a series of amusing incidents repeatedly foil his plans. In the end, the accuracy of the palm reader's forecast is proven, and Lord Arthur and Sybil can wed without further hindrance.
