The Importance Of Being Earnest A Trivial Comedy for Serious People

By Oscar Wilde
The Importance Of Being Earnest A Trivial Comedy for Serious People by Oscar Wilde digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

Oscar Wilde's comedy drama "The Importance of Being Earnest" was originally produced in 1895. The plot of the play centers on Algernon and Jack, two individuals who invent fictitious identities in order to avoid their respective social commitments and seek personal relationships. Algernon poses as Jack's brother in an effort to court Jack's ward, Cecily, while Jack creates a fictional younger brother, Ernest, as a justification for traveling to the city. The play is rife with humorous exchanges and sarcastic social criticism, especially on Victorian society's focus on social status and etiquette. "The Importance of Being Earnest" is still regarded as a treasured piece of English literature because to its smart narrative and comedy.
