The full entire play in Quick Modern [UK] English - for a fast-paced read!

'Well, must say, Algernon, that I think it is high time that Mr. Bunbury made up his mind whether he is going to live or to die. This shilly-shallying with the question is absurd.

They seem to think I should be with him. Nor do I in any way approve of the modern sympathy with invalids.

I consider it morbid. Illness of any kind is hardly a thing to be encouraged in others'.

Two young gentlemen living in England in 1895 use imaginary friends to inject some excitement into their seemingly dull lives. Jack Worthing invents a brother, 'Ernest', whom he pretends to be in order to visit his beloved Gwendolen in the city. Meanwhile, friend Algy Moncrieff uses the name 'Ernest' while visiting Jack's beautiful young ward, Cecily in the country. Much confusion ensues as the two women find out they have been deceived by their 'Ernests'.

Some would call this a society comedy; others, a Victorian farce. Regardless of the term used, this three-act play from Oscar Wilde captures the era effortlessly. With an intricate attention to detail, wonderful characterisation and dramatically expressive and humorous artwork, this really is a graphic novel to cherish.

As with all Classical Comics' Classics titles the period is faithful to the author's intentions, and there is a choice of Original & Quick texts versions.
