The ballad of Reading Gaol by Oscar Wilde( Book )
519 editions published between 1848 and 2017 in 16 languages and held by 3,013 libraries worldwide
"The Ballad of Reading Gaol" is a poem by Oscar Wilde, written in exile in Berneval-le-Grand in 1897, after his release from Reading Gaol. Wilde had been incarcerated in Reading after being convicted of homosexual offences in 1895 and sentenced to two years' hard labour in prison. During his imprisonment, on Tuesday 7 July 1896, Charles Thomas Wooldridge, a trooper in the Royal Horse Guards, was hung for the murder of his wife. The poem narrates the execution of Wooldridge; it moves from an objective story-telling to symbolic identification with the prisoners as a whole. No attempt is made to assess the justice of the laws which convicted them, but rather the poem highlights the brutalisation of the punishment that all convicts share. Wilde adopted the proletarian ballad form, and suggested it be published in Reynold's Magazine, "because it circulates widely among the criminal classes <U+2013> to which I now belong <U+2013> for once I will be read by my peers <U+2013> a new experience for me". The finished poem was published by Leonard Smithers on 13 February 1898 under the pseudonym "C.3.3.", which stood for "cell block C, landing 3, cell 3"; Wilde's cell number. In the prison system, prisoners were identified only by their cell numbers and not by name

Salome by Oscar Wilde( Book )
350 editions published between 1894 and 2017 in 19 languages and held by 1,764 libraries worldwide
Salome is Oscar Wilde's most experimental--and controversial--play. In its own time, the play, written in French, was described by a reviewer as "an arrangement in blood and ferocity, morbid, bizarre, repulsive." None, however, could deny the importance of Wilde's creation. Contemporary audiences and reviewers variously regarded Salome as the symbol of a thrilling modernity, a challenge to patriarchy, a confession of desire, a sign of moral decay, a new form of art, and a revolt against the restraints of Victorian society. Less well known than Wilde's beloved comedies, Salome is as enduringly modern and relevant. This edition uses the English translation done by Wilde's lover, Lord Alfred Douglas, and overseen and corrected by Wilde himself. Appendices detail the play's sources and provide extensive materials on its contemporary reception and dramatic productions. --Provided by publisher

Complete poetry by Oscar Wilde( Book )
261 editions published between 1881 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,538 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

A Woman of no importance by Oscar Wilde( Book )
269 editions published between 1893 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 1,215 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

In the first of these short mystery stories, LORD ARTHUR SAVILE'S CRIME is murder.

But despite his efforts, his first two 'victims' completely fail to be harmed by his lethal intentions. Thinking that his marriage plans are doomed, he encounters the same palm reader by the bank of the river Thames - and suddenly realises that his task, at last, can be fulfilled

And all men kill the thing they loveBy all let it be heard, Some do it with a bitter look. Some with a flattering word. The coward does it with a kiss. The brave man with a sword!--from "The Ballad of Reading Gaol" Although best known for his sparkling and witty plays, Oscar Wilde also distinguished himself as a prolific poet. From "Ravenna," a prize-winning poem he wrote in college, to "The Ballad of Reading Gaol," penned during his time in prison for homosexual acts, Wilde created a fascinating body of verse. More than 35 of his works appear in this excellent collection, and they reveal the scope and brilliance of his writing. Many were inspired by his time in Italy, including "Sonnet: On hearing the Dies Irae sung in the Sistine Chapel." Other brief pieces, called Impressions, capture the feeling of a moment: "Le Jardin" evokes a garden as winter descends. Still more honor his fellow poets, including "On the Sale of Keats' Love Letters." An enlightening anthology that Wilde lovers will treasure
The soul of man under socialism by Oscar Wilde( Book )
134 editions published between 1890 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 806 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
