The Importance of Being Earnest
by

Publisher: Project Gutenberg
ISBN/ASIN: B002U6QZ9M

Description:
A farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personae in order to escape burdensome social obligations. Working within the social conventions of late Victorian London, the play's major themes are the triviality with which it treats institutions as serious as marriage, and the resulting satire of Victorian ways.
