"By all accounts the stories we know today represent only a fraction of those with which Oscar Wilde enchanted his listeners.

In 1895, Oscar Wilde was sentenced to two years of hard labor as punishment for having engaged in homosexual acts.

The plays of Oscar Wilde by Oscar Wilde( Book )
245 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 4,037 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

In taking the the cause of this away

Though he is now best remembered for his fiction, famed wit and bon vivant Oscar Wilde also dabbled in drama over the course of his long and varied literary career.

Lord Arthur Savile's crime and other stories by Oscar Wilde( file )
214 editions published between 1890 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 2,516 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)
