Salomé : a tragedy in one act by Oscar Wilde( Book )

269 editions published between 1890 and 2015 in 22 languages and held by 2,312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Unique among his works, Oscar Wilde's play Salomé (1893) was written originally in French. Joseph Donohue's new translation of the horrific New Testament story has recast Wilde's shockingly radical drama in the natural idiomatic language of our own day. Presenting a colloquial and spare American English version of Wilde's consciously stylized French, Donohue's approach gives full value to the Irish author's dark ruminations on evil and perversity in a world on the brink of a new, unsettling Christian dispensation."--Book description, Amazon.com

Now for the first time in one volume we have a complete collection of all the short fiction he published, and it clearly shows his versatility and skill as a storyteller, too often overshadowed by his reputation as dramatist, critical theorist, and novelist."--Jacket
The plays of Oscar Wilde by Oscar Wilde( Book )

64 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in English and held by 2,227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Vintage edition of The Plays_of Oscar Wilde contains the plays that made Wilde one of the most important dramatists of his time, including The Importance of Being Earnest, one of the great works of modern literature. Oscar Wilde's plays demonstrate once again why their author must be seen as both an inaugurator and a master of modernism. In his best work, the subversive insights embedded in his wit continue to challenge our common assumptions. Wilde's ability to unsettle and startle us anew with his radical vision of the artifice inherent in the self's construction makes him our contemporary. This edition is introduced by John Lahr, author of Prick Up Your Ears: The Biography of Joe Orton. The plays included are Lady Windermere's Fan, Salome, A Woman of No Importance, An Ideal Husband, and The Importance of Being Earnest

Complete poetry by Oscar Wilde( Book )

141 editions published between 1881 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A powerful poem of universal guilt and a protest against capital punishment, The Ballad of Reading Gaol is Wilde's best-known poem, yet it is quite unlike the rest of his poetry. At Oxford Wilde discarded the passion and politics of his mother's Irish nationalistic anti-famine poetry and opted to follow an English Romantic tradition, paying tribute to Keats, Swinburne, and the Pre-Raphaelites. Admiration of French masters gradually led to his writing Impressionist, even decadent poems and his collection Poems (1881) brought accusations of obscenity and plagiarism as well as scathing reviews. Unabashed, Wilde revised and reprinted his final 'Author's Edition' in 1892, by which time he was the successful author of fiction, criticism, and Lady Windermere's Fan

Lord Arthur Savile's crime and other stories by Oscar Wilde( Book )

156 editions published between 1891 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lord Arthur Savile's Crime and Other Stories is a collection of four of Wilde's short stories: "Lord Arthur Savile's Crime," "The Sphinx without a Secret," "The Canterville Ghost," and "A Model Millionaire." Originally published in various London magazines in 1887, the pieces were eventually collected and published in book form in 1891. In these stories, generally described as social satires, Wilde parodied what he considered American naïveté as well as the cultural and social snobbery associated with the British aristocracy. Critics praise Wilde's literary achievement with these stories - particularly "The Canterville Ghost" and "Lord Arthur Savile's Crime"--But note the relative neglect of his short fiction in light of the notoriety of his dramas and his novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray (1891)
Oscar Wilde by Oscar Wilde( Book )

32 editions published between 1960 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 850 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: The classic by Latin America's finest writer of the twentieth century-a true literary sensation-with an introduction by cyber-author William Gibson. The groundbreaking trans-genre work of Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986) has been insinuating itself into the structure, stance, and very breath of world literature for well over half a century. Multi-layered, self-referential, elusive, and allusive writing is now frequently labeled Borgesian. Umberto Eco's international bestseller, The Name of the Rose, is, on one level, an elaborate improvisation on Borges' fiction "The Library," which American readers first encountered in the original 1962 New Directions publication of Labyrinths. This new edition of Labyrinths, the classic representative selection of Borges' writing edited by Donald A. Yates and James E. Irby (in translations by themselves and others), includes the text of the original edition (as augmented in 1964) as well as Irby's biographical and critical essay, a poignant tribute by Andre Maurois, and a chronology of the author's life. Borges enthusiast William Gibson has contributed a new introduction bringing Borges' influence and importance into the twenty-first century
The soul of man under socialism by Oscar Wilde( Book )

136 editions published between 1890 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oscar Wilde-witty raconteur, flamboyant hedonist, and self-destructive lover-is most familiar as the author of brilliant comedies, including The Importance of Being Earnest, An Ideal Husband, and the decadent novel The Picture of Dorian Gray. This selection of critical writings reveals a different side of the great writer-the deep and serious reader of literature and philosophy, and the eloquent and original thinker about society and art. This illuminating collection includes ""The Portrait of Mr. W.H., "" ""In Defense of Dorian Gray, "" reviews, and the writings from Intentions (18
A Woman of no importance by Oscar Wilde( Book )

114 editions published between 1893 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 775 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'A Woman of No Importance' fuses comedy of manners with high melodrama, a serious protest against gender inequality ornately framed with perfect witticisms. At Lady Hunstanton's country house party, the quips are dazzling and the company is impeccably sophisticated - but beneath the laconic wit of society's elite is brewing a turbulent drama of social double standards and sexual hypocrisy. Gerald Arbuthnot is a young man on the make, with an American heiress and the post of secretary to the brilliant but dissolute Lord Illingworth within his reach. But when he asks his mother to celebrate with them, it is discovered that Lord Illingworth is Gerald's father, who seduced and abandoned his mother twenty years earlier. Horrified to find her son singing the praises of her seducer, Mrs Arbuthnot refuses to allow Gerald to continue in his service, and Gerald must choose between his wronged mother and a glittering career. Oscar Wilde's society comedy was first staged at the Haymarket theatre in London in 1893
