The Importance of Being Earnest and Other Plays Paperback
by Oscar Wilde
Edited by Richard Cave
Wilde was both a glittering wordsmith and a social outsider.
His drama emerges out of these two perhaps contradictory identities, combining epigrammatic brilliance and shrewd social observation.
Includes "Lady Windermere's Fan", "Salome", "A Woman of No Importance", "An Ideal Husband", "A Florentine Tragedy" and "The Importance of Being Earnest", which appears in full with the "Grigsby" scene which originally made up the fourth act.
