The Importance of Being Earnest was the last play that Oscar Wilde has written so it is special in every way. It is quite a stylish and unique sendup of the Victorian manners and courtship. It is the one complete with the different assumed names, one lost handbag and mistaken lovers. Algernon and Jack are the best friends and either of them wooing the ladies who think that all of their names are Ernest. It was the name which went on to inspire with all the confidence. The excellent wit of Oscar Wilde and his stunning social satire along with high farce is what that make this one a highly cherished play in the English language.
The book comes with a very special interview conducted with Michael Hackett, who is the director and professor in the School of Theater, TV and Film at UCLA.
