The importance of being earneast by oscar wilde

This victorian era story is a British comedy. The setting is London and the countryside. Urban London is full of fashion and full of business.

In the beginning, we are introduced to Algernon and Ernest. Ernest real name is Jack. Jack is bored with his life and creates a smaller brother called Ernest. This jack is in love with Gwendolen.

Thus there is an element of mistaken identities. I fell there are a lot of adjectives that are used. Miss Prism as a" female of repellent aspect, remotely connected with educations"  This might sound good but some readers might not prefer that langue.


Characters in this novel are lack insight. Lady Bracknell is preoccupied with her own parties. she is not sympathy towards invalids. Her manner is cold. 


The writing has touches of humour. Oscar humours the upper class of the victorian era. Only Oscar can get away with jabs that he makes at the society . In this novel Algernon and Ernest argue over a lady that both love. Jack says how can you eat muffins when we are in this horrible trouble.

To this Algernon replies that he can't eat muffins in an agitated manner and that the butter can probably get on my cuffs. Jack replies back it is perfectly heartless you eating muffins under these circumstances.

Oscar includes both satire and irony. The irony is the favorture tool of Oscar. He also includes fantasy and realism in his works. He describes the situation and people with  literary usage. The story is based on relationships.

l loved the style of humour writing.
