The Importance of Being Earnest

The Importance of Being Earnest

in EPUB format, also available for Kindle or in PDF

Set in England during the late Victorian era, the play's humour derives in part from characters maintaining fictitious identities to escape unwelcome social obligations. It is replete with witty dialogue and satirizes some of the foibles and hypocrisy of late Victorian society. It has proved Wilde's most enduringly popular play.

This is one of the most incredibly charming, very humourous and quite enjoyable plays I have ever read.
