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

20 editions published between 1894 and 1989 in English and held by 849 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 )

13 editions published between 1894 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 589 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

Salome is a tragic play written by Oscar Wilde, which tells the biblical story of Salome. Salome dances the Dance of the Seven Veils so well that she receives a boon from her stepfather Herod Antipas. Much to his dismay and her mother's delight she requests the head of John the Baptist on a silver platter. Though John is a favorite of Herod and under his protection, Herod cannot rescind his boon. Wilde originally wrote the play in French, and it was translated three years later
Salome by Richard Strauss( Recording )

1 edition published in 1989 in German and held by 129 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
