From the Inside Flap
Every selection appears in its entirety-a marvelous collection of outstanding works by the incomparable Oscar Wilde, who's been aptly called "a lord of language" by Max Beerbohm.
From the Back Cover
Here in one volume are his immensely popular novel, THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY; his last literary work, THE BALLAD OF READING GAOL, a product of his own prison experience; and four complete plays: LADY WINDERMERE'S FAN, his first dramatic success; AN IDEAL HUSBAND, which continued to poke fun at conventional morality; THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST, his finest comedy; and SALOME, a portrait of uncontrollable love originally written in French, now in a new translation by Richard Ellmann.

In the beginning of the novel, I could almost smell the beauty described, but towards the end I could smell and taste the ugliness that comes with deceit, violence, and the demoralisation and decaying of the mind and soul. It left me with a bittersweet taste in my mouth, but also a richness of wisdom and insight in my mind and in my heart. It’s a novel that I’m glad that I read, and one that will always stay with me, as many insights are sure to enter my mind at some point and invite introspection. A wonderful classic!
