'The Cambridge Companion is successful in that it acts as a good guide for scholar and amateur alike to the diversity and complexity of Wilde's work and to the research currently being carried out by scholars on Wilde. Raby does a good job of balancing all the different research interests of the essayists without giving undue weight to any one view, or to any one aspect of Wilde's œuvre. This book offers an essential guide to Wilde scholarship.' The Wildean
'The Cambridge Companion (a particularly refreshing collection of essays) is certainly the first of these volumes a Wilde enthusiast will want to own. Edited by Peter Raby these 15 essays venture more deeply into the manner and more deftly into the manners of the subject than so many works of scholarly inquiry and speculation.' Los Angeles Times
This essential 1997 guide to one of the theatre's most important and influential writers, offers not only a general overview, but also incorporates some of the latest critical thinking, a detailed chronology of Wilde's work, a bibliography and illustrations from key productions.See all Product Description
