Answers
Algernon and Jack are honest about the way they feel towards Gwendolen and Cecily, but that's as far as honesty goes in the play. The characters lie to each other and themselves on a regular basis, and are constantly tricking each other and being dishonest in other ways. The title of the play is completely satirical.
