The Importance Of Being Earnest Pdf
The Importance of Being Earnest Pdf, A Trivial Comedy for Serious People is a play by Oscar Wilde. First performed on 14 February 1895 at the St James’s Theatre in London, it is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personæ 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. Some contemporary reviews praised the play’s humor and the culmination of Wilde’s artistic career, while others were cautious about its lack of social messages. Its high farce and witty dialogue have helped make The Importance of Being Earnest Wilde’s most enduringly popular play.
The Importance Of Being Earnest Book Summary
After the success of Wilde’s plays Lady Windermere’s Fan and A Woman of No Importance, Wilde’s producers urged him to write further plays. In July 1894, he mooted his idea for The Importance of Being Earnest to George Alexander, the actor-manager of the St James’s Theatre. Wilde spent the summer with his family at Worthing, where he wrote the play quickly in August. His fame now at its peak, he used the working title Lady Lancing to avoid preemptive speculation of its content. Many names and ideas in the play were borrowed from people or places the author had known; Lady Queensberry, Lord Alfred Douglas’s mother, for example, lived at Bracknell. Wilde scholars agree the most important influence on the play was W. S. Gilbert’s 1877 farce Engaged, from which Wilde borrowed not only several incidents but also “the gravity of tone demanded by Gilbert of his actors”.
