PLOT SUMMARY:

The Importance of Being Earnest

A Trivial Comedy for Serious People

While visiting his friend Algernon Moncrieff, Mr. Ernest Worthing is discovered not to be Ernest at all, but rather Jack Worthing. What’s more, he is not the urbane socialite he purports to be, but instead, Jack, who actually resides in the country, is the respectable guardian of his 18 year old ward, Cecily Cardew. He has made up a scandalous brother named Ernest and assumes his identity while in town to escape the boring respectability of country life.

Oscar Wilde set out distinctly to write a comedy about nothing, and he has succeeded with flare and wit. It’s philosophy? According to Wilde, “That we should treat all the trivial things of life very seriously, and all the serious things of life with sincere and studied triviality”.
