More About the Author

Oscar Fingall O'Flahertie Wills Wilde was born in Dublin in 1854. He was educated at Trinity College, Dublin and Magdalen College, Oxford where, a disciple of Pater, he founded an aesthetic cult. In 1884 he married Constance Lloyd, and his two sons were born in 1885 and 1886.
His novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray (1891), and social comedies Lady Windermere's Fan (1892), A Woman of No Importance (1893), An Ideal Husband (1895), and The Importance of Being Earnest (1895), established his reputation. In 1895, following his libel action against the Marquess of Queesberry, Wilde was sentenced to two years' imprisonment for homosexual conduct, as a result of which he wrote The Ballad of Reading Gaol (1898), and his confessional letter De Profundis (1905). On his release from prison in 1897 he lived in obscurity in Europe, and died in Paris in 1900.

They don't call them classics for any old reason. Most of the plays in here are full of wit and humour. I liked Ernest, a woman of no importance and Vera. The plays of Wilde are something everyone should read whether they have an interest or not, as was my case.

Good buy at an excellent value. Before the plays there is an introduction giving some of the main details of Wilde's literary style and of the plays.

Edición de reducido precio que incluye todas las obras de teatro, en lengua inglesa, del señor Wilde sin que incluya toda su demás producción literaria. El libro es muy endeble y no sé en que estado se encontrará cuando termine su lectura. El papel es del más barato, por ello el precio final de esta edición de tapa blanda pero como punto positivo decir que lo que contiene sus páginas merece la pena y con creces.

Esta edición incluye una introducción y notas a cargo de Anne Varty y las obras que contiene son:

Vera; or, The Nihilists
The Duchess of Padua
Salomé
lady Windermere's Fan
A Woman o No Importance
An Ideal Husband
The Importance of Being Earnest
La Sainte Courtisane
A Florentine Tragedy

Simplemente recordar para terminar que Oscar Wilde también escribió una novela, varias historias cortas, varios ensayos y numerosas poesías. Por este motivo yo no recomendaría un volumen de su obra completa, ya que sería pesado y difícil de manejar por su gran cantidad de páginas.

Like all the Wordsworth classics, this book has some information about the author, and when the plays or books were written, which can be nice to read sometimes. I am a big Oscar Wilde fan, and my favourite Is The Importance Of Being Earnest.

Very reasonable price with Prime delivery. Very light and good size which makes it perfect to carry around. Good collection of one of the best modern English playwrights. My new accompanying friend!

Oscar Wilde never dates-doesn't read as "period" either.
All of these should go down well with intelligent modern audiences---expensive to mount though!
