The Importance of Being Earnest

  

by Oscar Wilde

Analysis: Narrator Point of View

Who is the narrator, can she or he read minds, and, more importantly, can we trust her or him?

Nope. Nothing doing here, folks. This is a play without a narrator or a chorus.

Though all works of literature present the author’s point of view, they don’t all have a narrator or a narrative voice that ties together and presents the story. This particular piece of literature doesn't have a narrator through whose eyes or voice we learn the story.
