4.0 out of 5 stars Useful critical overview, 15 May 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: The Cambridge Companion to Oscar Wilde (Cambridge Companions to Literature) (Paperback)
This is a fairly comprehensive collection of essays covering much of Wilde's output. They are from recognised figures in the field, such as the author himself, who has written much on the 1890s, and a reworked piece from Richard Ellmann (see his definitive biography of Oscar). They cover a range of modern critical viewpoints, including discourse on sexuality. My only reservation is that the collection does not address Wilde's short stories, which are an area of burgeoning interest. The book has, however, had heavy use from myself and my friends - a testament to its usefulness is that my tutor's copy of the book was stolen when he left his office open to go to the toilet! All in all, if you are doing any prolonged study of Wilde, this book is an invaluable aid, and well worth the price.
