You can’t possibly ask me to go without having some dinner. It’s absurd. I never go without my dinner. No one ever does, except vegetarians and people like that.–Oscar Wilde

Quote by Oscar Wilde, in “The Importance of Being Earnest” (1895).

The “ Importance of Being Earnest”, said to be “A Trivial Comedy for Serious People,” is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personae in order to escape burdensome social obligations. Working within the social conventions of late Victorian London, the play’s major themes are the triviality with which it treats institutions as serious as marriage, and the resulting satire of Victorian ways.
