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

270 editions published between 1890 and 2015 in 22 languages and held by 2,314 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,

Now for the first time in one volume we have a complete collection of all the short fiction he published, and it clearly shows his versatility and skill as a storyteller, too often overshadowed by his reputation as dramatist, critical theorist, and novelist."--Jacket
The plays of Oscar Wilde by Oscar Wilde( Book )

68 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in English and Chinese and held by 2,240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Vintage edition of The Plays_of Oscar Wilde contains the plays that made Wilde one of the most important dramatists of his time, including The Importance of Being Earnest, one of the great works of modern literature. Oscar Wilde's plays demonstrate once again why their author must be seen as both an inaugurator and a master of modernism. In his best work, the subversive insights embedded in his wit continue to challenge our common assumptions. Wilde's ability to unsettle and startle us anew with his radical vision of the artifice inherent in the self's construction makes him our contemporary. This edition is introduced by John Lahr, author of Prick Up Your Ears: The Biography of Joe Orton. The plays included are Lady Windermere's Fan, Salome, A Woman of No Importance, An Ideal Husband, and The Importance of Being Earnest

The Appendix shows Wilde's original ordering, constructed with great care around a 'musical' arrangement of themes. The poems reveal unexpected aspects of a literary chameleon usually identified with sparkling wit and social comedy

Oscar Wilde : a biography by Oscar Wilde( Book )

53 editions published between 1918 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 920 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: The classic by Latin America's finest writer of the twentieth century-a true literary sensation-with an introduction by cyber-author William Gibson. The groundbreaking trans-genre work of Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986) has been insinuating itself into the structure, stance, and very breath of world literature for well over half a century. Multi-layered, self-referential, elusive, and allusive writing is now frequently labeled Borgesian. Umberto Eco's international bestseller, The Name of the Rose, is, on one level, an elaborate improvisation on Borges' fiction "The Library," which American readers first encountered in the original 1962 New Directions publication of Labyrinths. This new edition of Labyrinths, the classic representative selection of Borges' writing edited by Donald A. Yates and James E. Irby (in translations by themselves and others), includes the text of the original edition (as augmented in 1964) as well as Irby's biographical and critical essay, a poignant tribute by Andre Maurois, and a chronology of the author's life. Borges enthusiast William Gibson has contributed a new introduction bringing Borges' influence and importance into the twenty-first century
A house of pomegranates by Oscar Wilde( Book )

165 editions published between 1890 and 2012 in 11 languages and held by 906 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lord Arthur Savile's crime and other stories by Oscar Wilde( Book )

153 editions published between 1891 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lord Arthur Savile's Crime and Other Stories is a collection of four of Wilde's short stories: "Lord Arthur Savile's Crime," "The Sphinx without a Secret," "The Canterville Ghost," and "A Model Millionaire." Originally published in various London magazines in 1887, the pieces were eventually collected and published in book form in 1891. In these stories, generally described as social satires, Wilde parodied what he considered American naïveté as well as the cultural and social snobbery associated with the British aristocracy. Critics praise Wilde's literary achievement with these stories - particularly "The Canterville Ghost" and "Lord Arthur Savile's Crime"--But note the relative neglect of his short fiction in light of the notoriety of his dramas and his novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray (1891)
The soul of man under socialism by Oscar Wilde( Book )

127 editions published between 1890 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Soul of Man under Socialism is an 1891 essay by Oscar Wilde. Wilde puts forth the argument that within a capitalist system "the majority of people spoil their lives by an unhealthy and exaggerated altruism - are forced, indeed, so to spoil them"--That the necessity of solving the problems that capitalism creates draws away the talent that could otherwise be used to fulfill one's potential. In taking the the cause of this away
