The Importance of Being Earnest

I would like to have two separate documents.

#1 Write a response paper that evaluates the use of humor in The Importance of Being Earnest. To what end does Wilde employ humor? Is the play always funny?

#2 Do Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories just provide entertainment value or do they tell us something about Victorian culture?
Sherlock Holmes stories: “The Copper Beeches,” “The Speckled Band,” “Engineer’s Thumb”
