about

The Importance of Being Earnest is both Oscar Wilde's most important and funniest play. As the subtitle suggests there is more to this play than it's farcical nature suggests. Wilde calls into question the nature of identity while poking fun at proper British manners and the aristocracy. Wilder Publications is a green publisher. All of our books are printed to order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oscar Wilde is the best. Fan of all his works, this was the first play of his I ever read. It's wonderful, it's light, it's fun and oh so funny.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Its funny I didn't know this play was a comedy before reading it. It's cute and quirky. Some of the lines are eternally quotable. The characters have next to no depth--which bothered me some. Overall, it's a good quick read, but not a favourite.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Introduction to Wilde This was the first thing I read by Oscar Wilde. I read it and watched the movie in high school. The style of his writing is interesting. The dialogue and satirical tone is not for everyone but it's definitely worth reading. Since then I've been wanting to read more of his works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant The Importance of Being Earnest was my first exposure to Oscar Wilde and what an experience it was. Oscar Wilde is such a sharp writer. The satire and the witty dialogue just flows and makes for a great read. I found myself audibly laughing on more than one occasion.
