Book Overview
Oscar Wilde, arguably the wittiest writer in English, was at the height of this powers when he wrote The Importance of Being Earnes t. Wilde wrote it quickly, but then extensively revised and shortened this work to create a gem. Despite its apparent humour, the play addresses the state of Victorian society; indeed, it is subtitled A Trivial Comedy for Serious People.
