The Importance of Being Earnest Paperback
by Oscar Wilde
Part of the New Mermaids series
The Importance of Being Earnest is one of the most enduringly popular of British comic dramas, and a mainstay of English literature and drama courses at college and university level.
This is an ideal edition for students with on-page notes to help clarify meaning, and a completely new introduction.
In the new introduction, Francesca Coppa explores recent critical approaches to the play, including queer and postcolonial readings, as well as giving the context in which the play was written and how it relates to Wilde's personal life and public persona.
The introduction also discusses the play's stage history, providing students with an ideal overview of the play and its resonances for contemporary audiences.
