about this book

Here in one volume are Oscar Wilde's immensely popular novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray; his last literary work, The Ballad of Reading Gaol-a product of his own prison experience-and four complete plays: Lady Windermere's Fan (his first dramatic success); An Ideal Husband (which continued to poke fun at conventional morality); The Importance of Being Earnest (his finest comedy) and Salom         (a portrait of uncontrollable love originally written in French, now in a new translation by Richard Elman). Every selection appears in its entirely-a marvelous collection of outstanding works by the incomparable Oscar Wilde, whom Max Beerbohm so aptly labeled "a lord of language."
