9781482019964: The Importance of Being Earnest: A Trivial Comedy for Serious People

First staged in London in 1895, five years before the death of Oscar Wilde, "The Importance of Being Earnest" has become one of the world's most popular plays ever, mocking with Wilde's original and characteristic humour the lifestyle and conventions of Victorian socialites. This play marked the peak of Wilde's career, yet led to his downfall. During the trial that followed the confrontation between Wilde and the father of his lover, who had been refused admittance on the opening night of the play, Wilde's homosexuality was exposed and led to his imprisonment.
