The Importance of Being Earnest
By Oscar Wilde
A farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious persona to escape burdensome social obligations. Algernon thinks the servant class has a responsibility to set a moral standard for the upper classes. Morality and the constraints it imposes on society is a favorite topic of conversation and the central plot. The man who both is and isn't Ernest/earnest, presents a moral paradox.
