Review – The Importance of Being Earnest

Posted March 18, 2015 by in Reviews / 4 Comments

Cover of The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar WIldeThe Importance of Being Earnest, Oscar Wilde

I don’t think there’s much I have to say about this that hasn’t been said. Like, gee, did you know Wilde was really witty and satirical? I know, it shocked me too… But in all seriousness, even reading this rather than seeing it performed, it has a wonderful flow and wit, and it’s really funny. I don’t normally have much patience with plays, because they’re so much flatter on the page, and you don’t get the fun of watching actors/directors interpreting them, but I really enjoyed this anyway.

And yes, yes, I know; it’s disgraceful I have two English Lit degrees and this is the first time I’ve ever read The Importance of Being Earnest. I can only say that Wilde was a bit too recent for me…

Rating: 4/5

  1. I love Wilde. This one is so funny, but I particularly enjoyed his fairy tales and Dorian Gray, of course. Beautiful stuff.
