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

Comments about The Importance of Being Earnest:
I really enjoyed this charming allegory. Classic defence of Women's and other minority rights well before it was fashionable. Shows the true value of a person.
