About this product

Product Information

Wilde's works are suffused with his aestheticism, brilliant craftsmanship, legendary wit and, ultimately, his tragic muse. He wrote tender fairy stories for children employing all his grace, artistry and wit, of which the best-known is 'The Happy Prince'. Counterpoints to this were his novel 'The Picture of Dorian Gray', which shocked and outraged many readers of his day, and his stories for adults which exhibited his fascination with the relations between serene art and decadent life. Wilde took London by storm with his plays, particularly his masterpiece The Importance of Being Earnest. His essays - in particular 'De Profundis'- and his 'Ballad of Reading Gaol', both written after his release from prison, strikingly break the bounds of his usual expressive range. His other essays and poems are all included in this comprehensive collection of the works of one of the most exciting writers of the late nineteenth century. AUTHOR: I have put my genius into my life, all I have put into my works is my talents . In many ways, the written works of Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) are overshadowed by the drama of his life, and the incandescence of his personality, but they should not be undervalued. Whether it is the wit of his plays, the intriguing premise of his only novel, 'The Picture of Dorian Gray', the sporadic brilliance of his poetry or the delightful charm of his children's stories, not just the talent but the genius of the man shines through.
