The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde Book Summary:

Oscar Wilde's most successful play, The Importance of Being Earnest is a Victorian era comedy involving the tangle created when best friends maintain fictitious identities to avoid having to attend social engagements they prefer not to attend. The play is full of satire based on the idiosyncrasies of the late Victorian society, snappy dialogue, and inside jokes that continue to make the play popular today. The aristocratic young Algernon uses a made-up sickly friend that lives in the county as a way to excuse himself from social obligations. Bunbury, the imaginary friend, is sickly and Algernon faithfully visits him often. At the same time one on Algernon's close friends, Ernest Worthing, is running a deception of his own that allows him to lead a bit of a double life. A small error made by "Ernest" leads to his having to reveal his true name to Algernon and the disclosure that the libertine Algernon knows as "Ernest" is far different from the serious Shropshire country gentleman Jack. Love enters in and the assumed identity each man has taken leads to many jokes and awkward moments between Algernon, who posed as Ernst to meet Jack's ward Cecily, and Jack who took on the persona of Ernst while in London when he met Algernon's cousin Gwendolen and fell in love with her. Many secrets and mysteries are unraveled when they all come together at the country estate of Jack Worthing.

The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde Book Summary:

Oscar Wilde was at once a family man and a homosexual outsider, a socialite, socialist, and Irish nationalist. His contradictions inspired him to ponder the roles and masks donned in conventional society, and his acute and wry insights are wonderfully displayed in this collection of his essential plays. Known not only for his brilliant, epigrammatic language, but also for his sense of theatrical design, color, and staging, Wilde created an enduring body of finely crafted works, whose delights and ironies still speak to modern audiences. In addition to Lady Windermere's Fan, Salomé, A Woman of No Importance, An Ideal Husband, A Florentine Tragedy, and The Importance of Being Earnest, this edition contains an introduction, notes and commentaries, and an excised scene from The Importance of Being Earnest.

The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde Book Summary:

A classic satire of Victorian society, Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest” is one of the author’s most frequently performed works. The story trivializes its characters, who through a series of deceptions pretend to be people that they are not in order to escape the burdensome demands of social conventions. When John Worthing visits his best friend Algernon Moncrieff, to whom he is known as Ernest, Algernon notices the curious inscription on his cigarette case which reads, “From little Cecily, with her fondest love to her dear Uncle Jack.” John, who has come to visit in order to propose to Algernon’s cousin, Gwendolen Fairfax, must explain his deception before Algernon will consent to the proposal. The discovery prompts Algernon to reveal a similar deception of his own; he pretends to have an invalid cousin whom he can visit in the country in order to escape any unwelcome social obligation. What follows is a scheme between the two to assume each other’s imaginary personas in order to enable the ruse. A roaring farce which plays upon the consequences of deception and the social absurdities of Victorian society, “The Importance of Being Earnest” remains to this day as one of Wilde’s most popular plays. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper.

The successful opening night marked the climax of Wilde's career but also heralded his downfall. The Marquess of Queensberry, whose son Lord Alfred Douglas was Wilde's lover, planned to present the writer with a bouquet of rotten vegetables and disrupt the show. Wilde was tipped off and Queensberry was refused admission. Soon afterwards their feud came to a climax in court, where Wilde's homosexual double life was revealed to the Victorian public and he was eventually sentenced to imprisonment. His notoriety caused the play, despite its early success, to be closed after 86 performances. After his release, he published the play from exile in Paris, but he wrote no further comic or dramatic work.

The Importance of Being Earnest - 80Th Anniversary - [Barnes And Noble] - (ILLUSTRATED) by Oscar Wilde Book Summary:

"A wealthy philanthropist adopts an abandoned baby he finds in a railway station waiting room. The child grows into a fine, upstanding young man. When his benefactor dies, he is made the guardian of the old man's lovely young daughter. But unknown to everyone, he leads a double life that even his best friend knows nothing about...If you thought that this has all the makings of a most sinister and diabolical plot, you couldn't be more mistaken. The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde is a light as a feather confection, full of mischief, fun and laughter!Written in 1894, this was Wilde's last play. It went on stage on Valentine's Day 1895 and received the most whole hearted and fulsome applause that had ever greeted a contemporary play. Reviewers complained that there was hardly a moment where the audience could stop laughing! It was seen as a wonderful triumph, the work of a master craftsman working at the height of his powers. However, in fifteen weeks Oscar Wilde was in jail. The sensational trial and the humiliating personal exposure of his private life, the loss of his reputation and his final bankruptcy are all part of literary history.The Importance of Being Earnest, A Trivial Comedy for Serious People to give it its full name is an utterly delightful, frothy creation, with elements of farce, non-stop humor and a veritable tsunami of brilliantly comic one-liners. The three-act play takes place in Algernon Moncrieff's rooms on Half-Moon Street in London and the country house at Woolton. Algernon Moncrieff's best friend is Ernest, a fine young gentleman. Ernest is also in love with Algernon's cousin, Gwendolen. But Ernest is not what he seems. He is actually Jack Worthing, who lives a quiet life. He is wealthy and a Justice of the Peace in Hertfordshire, guardian of his dead benefactor's young daughter, Cecily. Both Cecily and Gwendolen are for some reason, obsessed with the name “Ernest” and what follows is a madcap ride through Victorian tea parties, country house snobbery and mistaken identities.Many critics have carped that The Importance of Being Earnest does not tackle any serious social or political issues. It was considered pure entertainment and mere clever nonsense. However, its sheer entertainment value cannot be denied and it has remained one of Oscar Wilde's most staged plays. Serious actors like John Gielgud have played Jack, Peggy Ashcroft has played Cecily and one reviewer even remarked that it was the second most performed English play after Shakespeare's Hamlet!As a light hearted, wacky laugh a minutecreation The Importance of Being Earnest has few rivals."
