The Importance of Being Earnest Lady Windermere s Fan A Woman of No Importance Salome An Ideal Husband br br Oscar Wilde was already one of the best known literary figures in Britain when he was persuaded to turn his extraordinary talents to the theatre Between and he produced a sequence of distinctive plays which spearheaded the dramatic renaissance of the s and retain their power today This collection offers newly edited texts of Lady Windermere s Fan A Woman of No Importance Salome An Ideal Husband and arguably the greatest farcical comedy in English The Importance of Being Earnest, This is Oscar Wilde s tale of the American family moved into a British mansion Canterville Chase much to the annoyance its tired ghost The family which refuses to believe in him is in Wilde s way a commentary on the British nobility of the day and on the Americans too The tale like many of Wilde s is rich with allusion but ends as sentimental romance, In print since this is a single volume collection of Oscar Wilde s texts It contains his only novel The Portrait of Dorian Gray as well as his plays stories poems essays and letters Illustrated with many photographs the book includes introductions to each section by Wilde s grandon Merlin Holoand Owen Dudley Edwards Declan Kibertd and Terence Brown A comprehensive bibliography of works by and about Oscar Wilde together with a chronological table of his life and work are also included, Although Oscar Wilde created a wide range of poetry essays and fairy tales and one novel in his brief tragic life he is perhaps best known as a dramatist His witty clever drama populated by brilliant talkers skilled in the art of riposte and paradox are still staples of the theatrical repertoire br i An Ideal Husband i revolves around a blackmail scheme that forces a married couple to reexamine their moral standards providing along the way a wry commentary on the rarity of politicians who can claim to be ethically pure A supporting cast of young lovers society matrons an overbearing father and a formidable femme fatale continually exchange sparkling repartee keeping the play moving at a lively pace br Like most of Wilde s plays this scintillating drawing room comedy is wise well constructed and deeply satisfying An instant success at its debut the play continues to delight audiences over one hundred years later i An Ideal Husband i is a must read for Wilde fans students of English literature and anyone delighted by wit urbanity and timeless sophistication
