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

4 editions published between 1945 and 1973 in English and held by 519 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

The first and greatest of French literature's epics, this eleventh-century tale of romance and heroism embodies all the power and majesty of its predecessors from other cultures. Its narrative framework echoes that of classical mythology, and it melds European historic accounts and legends of the troubadours with folklore from the Far East. This crystalline translation by Leonard Bacon does full justice to the timeless tale of the warrior Roland, nephew to Charlemagne and prince of the Holy Roman Empire. A patriotic and poetic story of valor, betrayal, and revenge, it represents a landmark in world literature
