by Oscar Wilde

Part of the Legend Classics Series

The Importance of Being Earnest (Legend Classics) Synopsis

The final comic or dramatic work from undisputed genius Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest, A Trivial Comedy for Serious People is his most enduring popular play and a must-read for any Wilde fan. A farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personae to escape burdensome social obligations, the play is an unforgettable satire of Victorian ways. Wilde's notoriety caused the play, despite its early success, to be closed after 86 performances. This latest edition allows you to discover or enjoy once again the writing of one of history's great comedy and drama writers.
