The soul of man under socialism by Oscar Wilde( file )
139 editions published between 1890 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 4,329 libraries worldwide
In The Soul of Man under Socialism Oscar Wilde expounds on an anarchist world view. Wilde argues that under capitalism the majority of people spoil their lives by an unhealthy and exaggerated altruism-are forced, indeed, so to spoil them: instead of realizing their true talents, they waste their time solving the social problems caused by capitalism, without taking their common cause away. Thus, caring people seriously and very sentimentally set themselves to the task of remedying the evils that they see in poverty, but their remedies do not cure the disease: they merely prolong it because, the proper aim is to try and reconstruct society on such a basis that poverty will be impossible
A Woman of no importance by Oscar Wilde( file )
267 editions published between 1893 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 3,975 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
