Since I’m finishing my master’s degree this semester and have to defend my thesis and take an oral exam over everything I’ve learned in just over a month (!), I’m doing my best to reread as many of the texts on my reading list as possible. Thankfully, one of those rereads was The Importance of Being Earnest, which is undoubtedly one of the most enjoyable reading experiences at your disposal.
There probably isn’t anything terribly new or unique I can say about this play, so I won’t try. It’s hilarious and ridiculous and perfectly entertaining. Go read it if you haven’t.
Before I allow myself to start any other leisure reading, I’m making myself get through the last two texts I plan to revisit for my studies: The Glass Menagerie and Much Ado About Nothing, and I’m also making my way through the poetry of the likes of John Donne, Emily Dickinson, and Edna St. Vincent Millay.
Oh, the life of an English student…
