Publisher's Summary

The Importance of Being Earnest is probably the wittiest comedy in the English language; it is certainly the least earnest. The subtitle, "A Trivial Comedy for Serious People", gives a clear indication of its nature. It is a play about the only subjects that Oscar Wilde would admit taking seriously: wit, elegance, and paradox. Sir John Gielgud had a particularly long association with The Importance of Being Earnest and was able to assemble a distinguished cast for this recording, which is as near to the ideal as any that could be chosen.
