The soul of man under socialism by Oscar Wilde( file )
142 editions published between 1890 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,290 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

The plays of Oscar Wilde by Oscar Wilde( Book )
77 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,768 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

Lord Arthur Savile's crime and other stories by Oscar Wilde( file )
95 editions published between 1891 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,936 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)

""The Duchess of Padua"" is a five-act play by Oscar Wilde which was originally written for American actress Mary Anderson in 1883. Due to her rejection of the play, it was not performed until 1891 by the American tragedian Lawrence Barrett. He changed the name to ""Guido Ferranti"", the name of the male lead, and while embraced by critics and praised for its lyrical beauty, it failed with the New York public after three weeks to half-empty houses
