The Best Of Oscar Wilde

By Wilde, Oscar




Oscar Wilde’s infamous wit, taste for scandal, and gift for revealing the hypocrisies of fashionable society are on display here in this collection of his finest plays. A genius both of and ahead of his time, he built his craft on the eternal questions of right and wrong—with pithy dialogue as fresh today as when it was written.
 
In addition to Wilde’s five major plays, this Signet Classics edition contains:
 
• Two interviews with the playwright at the peak of his career, in which Wilde discusses his work—and his critics
• Some of his most brilliant critical writing, in which he discusses the nature of art in terms that anticipate much of today’s literary theory
• An appendix that restores valuable lines that appeared in the original text of The Importance of Being Earnest

With an Introduction by Sylvan Barnet
and a New Afterword by Marylu Hill

The Best of Oscar Wilde: Being a Collection of the Best Poems and Prose Extracts of the Writer (Classic Reprint)

Wilde, Oscar

Forgotten Books, 4/19/2018. Hardcover. new. black & white illustrations. Excerpt from The Best of Oscar Wilde: Being a Collection of the Best Poems and Prose Extracts of the Writer To drift with every passion till my soul Is a stringed lute on which all winds can play; Is it for this that I have given away Mine ancient Wisdom, and austere control? Methinks my life is a twice written scroll Scrawled over on some boyish holiday With idle songs for pipe or Virelay Which do but mar the secret of the whole. Surely there was a time I might have trod The sunlit heights, and from life's dissonance Struck one clear chord to reach the ears of God: Is that time dead? Lo with a little rod I did but touch the honey of romance And must I lose a soul's inheritance? About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Best of Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde

Jaico Publishing House. Softcover. New. Widely known for his wit and flamboyance, Oscar Wilde was a great advocate of art for art’s sake. This charming collection of his prose and drama includes his most evocative works complete with his first, and only, novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, a tale of pure beauty and unadulterated decadence. Also included are his fascinating short stories, like the delightful tale of The Happy Prince and the poignant satire, The Birthday of the Infanta with its much darker overtones. Among his plays are comedies such as Lady Windermere’s Fan and A Woman of No Importance, seemingly trivial but mercilessly exposing Victorian hypocrisies. The book also includes the controversial and macabre tragedy, Salomé which was designed to make his audience shudder by its depiction of unnatural passion. Vividly engaging and beautifully illustrated, Jaico Classics’ edition of Oscar Wilde’s timeless work is must-have for a true lover of literature and art. Printed Pages: 272. NA
