Read full description of the books:
Here in one volume are his immensely popular novel, "The Picture Of Dorian Gray"; his last literary work, the "Ballad Of Reading Goal," a product of his own prison experience; and four complete plays: "Lady Windermere's Fan," his first dramatic success; "An Ideal Husband," which continued to poke fun at conventional morality; "The Importance Of Being Earnest," his finest comedy; and "Salome," a portrait of uncontrollable love originally written in French, now in a new translation by Richard Elman. Every selection appears in its entirely--a marvelous collection of outstanding works by the incomparable Oscar Wilde, whom Max Beerbohm so aptly labeled "a lord of language."

Read information about the authorOscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde was an Irish playwright, poet and author of numerous short stories and one novel. Known for his biting wit, and a plentitude of aphorisms, he became one of the most successful playwrights of the late Victorian era in London, and one of the greatest celebrities of his day. Several of his plays continue to be widely performed, especially The Importance of Being Earnest.
As the result of a widely covered series of trials, Wilde suffered a dramatic downfall and was imprisoned for two years hard labour after being convicted of "gross indecency" with other men. After Wilde was released from prison he set sail for Dieppe by the night ferry. He never returned to Ireland or Britain, and died in poverty.
