Описание

Oscar Wilde created his final and most lasting play, comic masterpieces of all time, THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST, in 1895. Considered one of the greatest THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST is a farce, playing with love, religion, and truth as it tells the tale of two men. Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff, who bend the truth in order to add excitement to their lives. Jack invents an imaginary brother, Ernest, whom he uses as an excuse to escape from his dull country home and gallavant in town. Meanwhile, Algernon follows Jack's scam, but his imaginary friend, Bumbury, provides a convenient method of adventuring in the country. However, their deceptions eventually cross paths, resulting in a series of crises that threaten to spoil their romantic pursuits. Hailed as the first modern comedy in England, THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST is Wilde's most famous work.

    I can tell you one thing, I am truly amazed with this audiobook! The narrator did so well in narrating the story that it was very fun to listen to. I honestly had a good laugh listening to this, and at the same time learned a valuable lesson from it. This audiobook is definitely worth the price. I highly recommend! :)

    El libro, ya desde el título, supone una búsqueda. Y esa búsqueda en la que Mar Gallego nos guía acaba por sorprendernos porque concluyes que lo que buscas realmente está más cerca de lo que realmente pensamos. Me parece importante este pasaje porque desde la Biblioteca promocionamos libros que contribuyen al reconocimiento de las historias de las personas de nuestro entorno en las que muchas veces no reparamos y son quienes más nos influyen y de alguna manera pueden decir quiénes somos realmente.

    Autoras como Ilu Ross o María Sánchez contribuyen a hacer esto posible y por eso es importante leer a Mar Gallego.Me ha enganchado mucho porque es una historia muy real, sencilla, tierna y a la vez muy profunda, sus personajes están bien enlazados y cada uno aporta su personalidad a la obra.

    Personaje favorito: sin duda Jack. Personaje odiado: madre biológica de Jack.

    Se lo recomendaría a mi maestro de lengua, porque estoy segura que le encantaría la forma en la que transcurre la historia y la manera de contarlo. Se aprecia lo bueno y lo malo del ser humano.

    The truth is rarely pure and never simple. Modern life would be very tedious if it were either, and modern literature a complete impossibility! Algernon: The amount of women in London who flirt with their own husbands is perfectly scandalous. ... Algernon: Ah! that must be Aunt Augusta

    I'm still in awe of Oscar Wilde's broad spectrum of authorship. From children's stories (in which there are social satires here and there) to silly and humorous plays that are still filled with social satire in every dialogue. This made me even more curious and wanted to read another famous Wilde work, The Picture of Dorian Gray. Wilde's work seems like a delightful satirical reading. many things that can be taken from this book, amazing

    A very quick read, and one that although it is from over 100 years ago... it still holds true. there is a lot of sage wisdom contained in this book - especially with pertaining to debt and why you shouldnt get yourself into it. it almost makes the book shine, given the current debt situation we find ourselves in.

    This was an absolute delight! I read The Picture Of Dorian Gray from Oscar Wilde before. If you haven't read, it's a very good book too. But, I had no idea he wrote such hilarious plays somehow.
    I'm so happy I discovered it and I'll keep reading his plays for sure.
    If you're looking for really well-written, funny plays with charming characters, please read this.

    Oscar Wilde's madcap farce about mistaken identities, secret engagements, and lovers entanglements still delights readers more than a century after its 1895 publication and premiere performance. The rapid-fire wit and eccentric characters of The Importance of Being Earnest have made it a mainstay of the high school curriculum for decades.

    Cecily Cardew and Gwendolen Fairfax are both in love with the same mythical suitor. Jack Worthing has wooed Gwendolen as Ernest while Algernon has also posed as Ernest to win the heart of Jack's ward, Cecily. When all four arrive at Jack's country home on the same weekend the "rivals" to fight for Ernest's undivided attention and the "Ernests" to claim their beloveds pandemonium breaks loose. Only a senile nursemaid and an old, discarded hand-bag can save the day!

    This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Edition includes a glossary and reader's notes to help the modern reader appreciate Wilde's wry wit and elaborate plot twists.
