To what extent is Wilde satirising Victorian society in The Importance of Being Earnest and how does this add to its comedy?
"To conclude, it is fair to say that Wilde has incorporated many forms of comedy however, I believe that satire is the largest component of the play but does require the intelligence for a thorough understanding that lends the play a stylish flair. The satirical nature of the play allows Wilde to adopt this didactic tool and ridicule Victorian concepts of earnestness, marriage and morals yet using the comedy to mask his underlying social commentary and making it socially acceptable to criticise."
To what extent is Wilde satirising Victorian society in The Importance of Being Earnest and how does this add to its comedy?- ALTERED
"To conclude, Wilde’s use of satire in The Importance of Being Earnest is of a didactic yet humorous nature to make the Victorian upper class reflect on their regulated, restrictive attitude to every aspect of life. The play’s subtitle, “A Trivial Comedy for Serious People” encapsulates Wilde’s aim to convey the message that these aristocrats take insignificant, “trivial” aspects of their lives, for example the need for “cucumber sandwiches”, due to their upper-class connotation, and take them to an superfluously grandiose levels to express their superior social status."
