The Best of Oscar Wilde
Selected Plays and Literary CriticismBook - 2012
Oscar Wilde's infamous wit, taste for scandal, and gift for revealing the hypocrisies of fashionable society are featured here in this collection of his finest plays. In excerpts of his critical writing, he discusses the nature of art in terms that anticipate much of today's literary theory. Also included: an appendix that restores valuable lines that appeared in the original text of The Importance of Being Earnest ; with an introduction by Sylvan Barnet and a new Afterword by Marylu Hill.
