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 Picture of Dorian Gray,' as well as his plays, stories, poems, essays and letters, all in their most authoritative texts.
This new illustrated edition, specially published to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Wilde's death, incorporates new revisions to the text of 'The Ballard of Reading Gaol.' The book includes introductions to each section by Merlin Holland (Oscar Wilde's grandson), Owen Dudley Edwards, Declan Kiberd and Terence Brown.
Also included is a comprehensive bibliography of works by and about Oscar Wilde, and a chronological table of his life and work.
