It is ironic that the framing device, which is meant to draw our attention to the constructed nature of it all, doesn't work nearly as well and ultimately fails to derail our enjoyment of that which we're supposed to be questioning.

A gripping psychological study of the war between the sexes that asks the question: Are we happier, wiser, more liberated, than the Victorian characters in the story?
