The Importance Of Being Earnest & Other Plays
In contrast to earlier deception histories that have tended to focus on Britain's later efforts emphasizing Operation Bodyguard, this work clearly shows that this strategy was forged much earlier in the deserts of Africa under the leadership of Dudley Clarke, not in London. Moreover, it was born not out of opportunity, but out of sheer desperation, when in June 1940 the British found themselves completely unprepared for war.
Oscar Wilde is the author of The Picture of Dorian Gray, The Importance of Being Earnest, as well as some of the most quoted lines ever written: We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars. I can resist everything except temptation. A cynic is a man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing. The truth is rarely pure and never simple. There is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about. To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.
