In the novel School for Scandal, gossip is a form of entertainment, and the gossipers have no interest in the damage done to the people they target, or in the truth they so maliciously stretch. Gossiping is an enjoyable passtime, and those who indulge have no honor or sense of morality. Through these characters, the theme is intended to teach the reader a variety of moral lessons and inspire a sense of honor.
