The Importance of Being Earnest - The Original Classic Edition


Witty and buoyant comedy of manners is brilliantly plotted from its effervescent first act to its hilarious denouement, and filled with some of literatures most famous epigrams. Widely considered Wildes most perfect work, the play is reprinted here from an authoritative early British edition.

This is a high quality book of the original classic edition.

This is a freshly published edition of this culturally important work, which is now, at last, again available to you.

Enjoy this classic work. These few paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside:

And as a high moral tone can hardly be said to conduce very much to either one?s health or one?s happiness, in order to get up to town I have always pretended to have a younger brother of the name of Ernest, who lives in the Albany, and gets into the most dreadful scrapes.

...If it wasn?t for Bunbury?s extraordinary bad health, for instance, I wouldn?t be able to dine with you at Willis?s to-night, for I have been really engaged to Aunt Augusta for more than a week.

...Well, I know, of course, how important it is not to keep a business engagement, if one wants to retain any sense of the beauty of life, but still I think you had better wait till Uncle Jack arrives.

...Considering that we have been engaged since February the 14th, and that I only met you to-day for the first time, I think it is rather hard that you should leave me for so long a period as half an hour.

...And what makes his conduct all the more heartless is, that he was perfectly well aware from the first that I have no brother, that I never had a brother, and that I don?t intend to have a brother, not even of any kind.
