The Importance of Being Earnest
A classic comedy of mistaken identities, secret engagements, and lovers entanglements that still delights readers over a century after its publication. The eccentric characters and rapid-fire wit in this book have made it a staple of high school curriculums. When two women fall in love with the same mythical suitor, chaos ensues as two men pose as "Ernest" to win their hearts. This edition comes with a glossary and reader's notes to help modern readers appreciate Wilde's wit and plot twists.
