The Importance of Being Earnest and Other Plays: Salome; Lady Windermere's Fan
A universal favorite, The Importance of Being Earnest displays Oscar Wilde's theatrical genius at its brilliant best.

Also included in this special collection are Wilde's first comedy success, Lady Windermere's Fan, and his richly sensual melodrama, Salome.
