eBook

"The Importance of Being Earnest" shows a full measure of Oscar Wilde's legendary wit, and embodies more than any of his other plays, his decency and warmth. This edition contains substantial excerpts from the original four-act version which was never produed, as well as the full test of the final three-act version, selections from Wilde's correspondence, and commentary by George Bernard Shaw, Max Beerbohm, St. John Hankin, and James Agate.

Sehr erfreulich.

Wer den Film "Ernst sein ist alles" kennt, der wird genauso viel Freude an dem Buch haben. Es ist ein Hochgenuss der Aristrokatie.

PLOT Here is Oscar Wilde's most brilliant tour de force, a witty and buoyant comedy of manners that has delighted millions in countless productions since its first performance in London's St. James' Theatre on February 14, 1895. The Importance of Being Earnest is celebrated not only for the lighthearted ingenuity of its plot, but for its inspired dialogue, rich with scintillating epigrams still savored by all who enjoy artful conversation. From the play's effervescent beginnings in Algernon Moncrieff's London flat to its hilarious denouement in the drawing room of Jack Worthing's country manor in Hertfordshire, this comic masterpiece keeps audiences breathlessly anticipating a new bon mot or a fresh twist of plot moment to moment. A selection of the Common Core State Standards Initiative. REVIEW I first the movie with the very talented Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth. I loved it and therefore bought the play a few years later. It is one of the plays I actually read at least once a year, it is so witty and charming. One of those books that reminds you of your crazy but adorable aunt! QUOTES -“I never change, except in my affections.” -"ever since I met you I have admired you more than any girl...I have ever met since...I met you.” -“Do you smoke? Well, yes, I must admit I smoke. I'm glad to hear of it. A man should always have an occupation of some kind.”

Keiner wie Oscar Wilde versteht es so gut, die Natur des Menschen darzustellen.

Wildes Komödie erzählt eigentlich von einer sehr alltäglichen Situation: Der Protagonist verfängt sich aufgrund der äusseren Umstände in seinem eigenen Lügennetz. Wildes Erzählung ist deshalb so witzig, weil er zwar nicht verurteilt, jedoch deutlich durch die Ironie und des Witzes im Stück seine Meinung oder moralische Ansicht spüren lässt. Für Liebhaber der englischen Literatur sehr empfehlenswert.
