The Importance of Being Earnest, Oscar Wilde, play, Jack Worthing, Elinor Fuche
The importance of being Earnest' is a play written in an English setting, presenting Jack Worthing as the main protagonist (Wilde act 1). In line with Elinor Fuche's visit to a small planet', it is not just enough to plainly go through a play without digging deep into it.
