Wilde O. Plays, Prose Writings and Poems

Brilliant and tragic, decadent yet radical, a socialist dandy and a witty moralist, Oscar Wilde embodied all the contradictions of the 1890s. The scope of his genius is indicated in this volume by the inclusion of the period’s most scintillating comedy – The Importance of Being Earnest; its most notorious novel – The Picture of Dorian Gray; and its most haunting elegy – The Ballad of Reading Gaol; together with a selection of his most acclaimed essays and stories. This expanded new edition now includes the complete version of De Profundis and Wilde’s teasing parable about Shakespeare, The Portrait of Mr. W.H.
