The importance of being earnest a trivial comedy for serious people by Oscar Wilde ( )
17 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in English and held by 754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A 'trivial play for serious people', a sparkling comedy of manners, 'The Importance of Being Earnest' is the epitome of wit and style. The play employs and parodies the conventions of farce and melodrama: identities are discovered, long lost family ties reinstated, and coincidences are savoured. The verbal brilliance of its highly self-conscious characters hides deep anxieties about social and personal identity. This neatly constructed satire, with its celebrated characters and much quoted dialogue, turns accepted ideas inside out and is generally regarded as Wilde's masterpiece

Shakespeare films in the making : vision, production and reception by Russell Jackson ( Book )
10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Shakespeare Films in the Making examines the production and reception of five feature-length Shakespeare films from the twentieth-century, focusing on the ways in which they articulate visions of their Shakespearean originals, of the fictional worlds in which the films are set, and of the movie-makers' own society. Two of the films - Warner Brothers' 1935 A Midsummer Night's Dream and MGM's 1936 Romeo and Juliet - were products of the Hollywood system and reflect the studios' desire to enhance their status with 'prestige pictures'. Oliver's 1944 Henry V was part of Britain's cultural war effort and embodies visions of the medieval past and ideal leadership. The story of its production and reception - on both sides of the Atlantic - shows that it was also a significant contribution to the campaign to assert the British film industry's response to the dominance of Hollywood. The Romeo and Juliet films of Renato Castellani (1954) and Franco Zeffirelli (1968) embodied visions of Renaissance Italy that contrast - in differing ways - with MGM's film. This book offers readings of these significant and influential films that are informed by an understanding of the process of movie production and are backed up by extensive archival research, including studio documents, script revisions, publicity materials and reviews."--Jacket
