The Importance of Being Ernest - Oscar Wilde - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the play The Importance of Being Ernest:

What's in a name?

My favorite Oscar Wilde quote from the play:

"The truth is rarely pure and never simple."

Questions to ponder while reading the play:

Is there anything more fun than a good satire?

Should we bring back Bunburying?

My review of The Importance of Being Ernest:

I bow to the great sarcasm of Oscar Wilde.

I wish I were so witty.

Another play I really want to see live.
