The Oscar Wilde collection( Visual )

3 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Includes reflections by Wilde's grandson Merlin Holland, and Douglas' grandniece Alice Douglas. The Importance of Being Earnest: "Filled with wit and wisdom, The Importance of being Earnest tells the tale of Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff. Jack has invented an imaginary brother, Ernest, whom he uses as an excuse to escape from his dull home in the country and frolic in town. Algernon uses a similar technique, only in reverse: his imaginary friend, Bunbury, provides a convenient and frequent method of taking adventures in the country. However, their deceptions eventually cross paths, resulting in a series of crises that threaten to spoil their romantic pursuits; Jack of his love Gwendolyn Fairfax, and Algernon of his belle Cecily Cardew." The picture of Dorian Gray: "Oscar Wilde's only novel, The picture of Dorian Gray, is a chilling melodrama, which scandalized polite society when first published in 1890. Dorian Gray is a wealthy English gentleman who gradually sinks into a life of dissipation and crime. Enthralled with his own physical beauty, Dorian purchases eternal youth at the expense of his soul. While Dorian remains young and unchanged by his hedonistic lifestyle, his portrait hides the terrible truth."
