Salome : a tragedy in one act by Oscar Wilde( Book )

27 editions published between 1894 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 880 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This stunningly illustrated book is a 1904 edition of Wilde's play "Salomé," and has been translated from the French of Oscar Wilde. The iconic illustrations are by Wilde's fellow Victorian and aesthete, Aubrey Beardsley. Although the two collaborated on this book, and several other related projects, they were, contrary to popular belief, not close friends

Salome : a tragedy in one act by Oscar Wilde( Book )

18 editions published between 1894 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Salome is Oscar Wilde's most experimental--and controversial--play. In its own time, the play, written in French, was described by a reviewer as "an arrangement in blood and ferocity, morbid, bizarre, repulsive." None, however, could deny the importance of Wilde's creation. Contemporary audiences and reviewers variously regarded Salome as the symbol of a thrilling modernity, a challenge to patriarchy, a confession of desire, a sign of moral decay, a new form of art, and a revolt against the restraints of Victorian society. Less well known than Wilde's beloved comedies, Salome is as enduringly modern and relevant. This edition uses the English translation done by Wilde's lover, Lord Alfred Douglas, and overseen and corrected by Wilde himself. Appendices detail the play's sources and provide extensive materials on its contemporary reception and dramatic productions. --Provided by publisher

2 editions published in 1989 in German and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This performance presents the great Leonie Rysanek in one of her most memorable roles--the teenage Judean princess Salome. Obsessed with the prophet Jochanaan, the Biblical John the Baptist (Norman Bailey), she skillfully manipulates her lecherous stepfather Herod (Ragnar Ulfung) until he has no choice but to have the holy man killed for spurning the princess's advances. The legendary Astrid Varnay is Salome's mother, Herodias. Highlights of the score include the Dance of the Seven Veils and Salome's final monologue, one of the supreme dramatic achievements in all of opera

Salomé : a tragedy in one act by Oscar Wilde( Book )

13 editions published between 1906 and 1997 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Unique among his works, Oscar Wilde's play Salomé (1893) was written originally in French. Joseph Donohue's new translation of the horrific New Testament story has recast Wilde's shockingly radical drama in the natural idiomatic language of our own day. Presenting a colloquial and spare American English version of Wilde's consciously stylized French, Donohue's approach gives full value to the Irish author's dark ruminations on evil and perversity in a world on the brink of a new, unsettling Christian dispensation"--Book description, University of Virginia Press website
