About the Book

'A Trivial Comedy for Serious People': its subtitle is the best summary of a play that isthe theatrical equivalent of a butterfly. The verbal brilliance of its highly self-consciouscharacters hides deep anxieties about social and personal identity: Jack Worthing,found as a baby in a handbag at Victoria Station and named after a railway ticket, isprepared to be re-christened to obtain the Christian name - Earnest - his belovedGwendolen requires in a husband; he then has to confront the stigma of being theillegitimate child of a servant, before fortune, and a benevolent dramatist, reveal his trueand entirely respectable identity. This is the only one-volume edition of the play toinclude an appendix with earlier versions and additional scenes that allow anappreciation of Wilde's creative process.
