T1 Salomé : a tragedy in one act A1 Wilde, Oscar,, Donohue, Joseph W.,, Moser, Barry., PB University of Virginia Press PP Charlottesville YR 2011 SN 9780813931913 0813931916 9780813931920 0813931924 AB "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.
