Product Description

Review

The appearance of this first volume in the new Oxford series of Wilde's complete works is a significant event for all students of the writer. For the first time, all Wilde's known surviving poems are collected together, including twenty-one which were not published during his lifetime (Review of Engish Studies)

The editorial apparatus is meticulous and exhaustive ... As ancillary evidence for Wilde's later importance as a major cultural phenomenon, they [the poems] will reward more serious attention from scholars than they have previously received, and to that end this edition will deservedly become a standard work (Review of Engish Studies)

From the Back Cover

Continuously in print since 1948, the Collins 'Complete Works of Oscar Wilde' has long been established as the most comprehensive and authoritative single-volume collection of Wilde's work available, containing his only novel, ' The Pictures of Dorian Gray', as well as his plays, stories, poems, essays and letters, all in their most authoritative texts. This new and expanded edition now includes

• all the plays and stories
• additional essays and poems
• newly commissioned introductions to each section by Merlin Holland, Owen Dudley Edwards, Declan Kiberd and Terence Brown
• a chronological table of Oscar Wilde's life and work

This book retains the 1966 general introduction by Oscar Wilde's son, Vyvyan Holland, with a new introduction by his grandson, Merlin Holland. Also included is a comprehensive biography of works by and about Oscar Wilde.

This rating is only for the paperback version not the text itself. The quality of this version is so horrible that I can not even read it and have to buy the hardcover version. Don't make the same misstake I did!

Wow! I didn't expect it to be so thick! This will keep me going foe a little while. Have always admired O.W. but didn't know his background, this book tells it in detail. Fast delivery. Highly recommended.

This review is more about the product it self than about the contents. I mean, we all know Oscar Wilde, it's a big classic and people who buy it usually know what they do.
SO, the book i received is the not the one showed : the cover is different. But it really doesn't matter because it's still nice. The inside contents are well presented, nice and cosy to read.
It arrived quickly and in perfect condition. Thumbs up !

It's not really necessary to say that Wilde is one of the best authors ever. His works are obligatory to any serious reader's bookshelf. If you are not a native English speaker, it's also a good fountain of vocabulary and "Brit" wit. Well done Oscar, wherever you are!

The kindle edition does not contain De Profundis. I bought this in my desperate search for a way to read De Profundis in its entirety (which is harder than it might initially appear), and this is not the solution. Furthermore, it does not have Teleny, either. It's hardly the complete works, and I would advise attaining another edition.
Two stars, because I do not have the heart to give anything associated with Wilde one star.

Whoa! I was totally unfamiliar with the works of Oscar Wilde, until I bought this one on a friend's recommendation. It's huuuuuge, yet incredibly beautiful. Dorian Gray must be one of the greatest stories ever told, his poems are razor-sharp, his letters not less, and every line he comes up with is quotable. If you want to make sure you don't miss a thing, this is the book to get (and try his biography, especially the part about the trial).

As new Amazon customer I was very disapointed with this as all it contained was The Picture of Dorian Grey and The Importance of Being Earnest. It promised the Complete works but they are nowhere to be found. I have no idea how to complain to a company like Amazon, so hpefully this negative review will warn others of the problem and if Amazon want to refund me for the purchase that would be good

This novel is a turbulant explanation of the ruined life of a man who has escaped any physical ramifications of sin. Dorian Gray's body and face go untouched by the nightmarish double-life he leads, while his portrait is changed by every wrong. The main question I had after reading it was whether someone would feel emotionally the effects of sin if he didn't feel them physically. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who is young or remembers being so, for this work explores the wonders and miseries of youth.
