    Some people have argued that the play has a strong gay subtext as earnest was Victorian slang for gay- you could look at the play from that aspect and see whether this is true or not.

    What aspects of the play interest you? If you have to dig up a theme that no one has thought of, I think you're going to find it hard. You can ook at class, leading double lives, etc, but the real joy of the play is the wit and word play for me.

    Yes u are right it is difficult but finally i have found the topic for my research... Instead of Importance of being Earnest i will suggest an other title for the play and reasearch on it why i have chosen particaluar title for the play. So now help in suggesting Title for the play other than importance of being earnest.. i have read the play and i am thinking what should i suggest another suitable title for it.. Please suggest me ..

    If you are going to write about why you have chosen a new title, it would be far more useful for you to choose the title yourself.

    Once you have chosen it, you can post it here for us to see if the language is correct.

    a new title for the play and finally come across by a title : Importance Of being a Hypocrite... The title is ironical,the reason for this title is that being a hypocrite is not important but Wilde makes it something important through his characters. Throughout the play characters are hypocrite for money and marriage. So please let me know is it ok ??
