The Importance of Being Earnest

The Importance of Being Earnest - Oscar Wilde I love Wilde's prose, but his plays always sound as if each and every character was Wilde himself, changing costumes and dashing about the stage to make entrances. There's only one voice here - Wilde's, only one witty, cynical outlook on life, and the reason why he didn't turn this into a monologue is that one-man stand-up shows weren't as popular and acceptable then.
