63 editions published between 1918 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 908 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

And all men kill the thing they loveBy all let it be heard, Some do it with a bitter look. Some with a flattering word. The coward does it with a kiss. The brave man with a sword!--from "The Ballad of Reading Gaol" Although best known for his sparkling and witty plays, Oscar Wilde also distinguished himself as a prolific poet. From "Ravenna," a prize-winning poem he wrote in college, to "The Ballad of Reading Gaol," penned during his time in prison for homosexual acts, Wilde created a fascinating body of verse. More than 35 of his works appear in this excellent collection, and they reveal the scope and brilliance of his writing. Many were inspired by his time in Italy, including "Sonnet: On hearing the Dies Irae sung in the Sistine Chapel." Other brief pieces, called Impressions, capture the feeling of a moment: "Le Jardin" evokes a garden as winter descends. Still more honor his fellow poets, including "On the Sale of Keats' Love Letters." An enlightening anthology that Wilde lovers will treasure

But despite his efforts, his first two 'victims' completely fail to be harmed by his lethal intentions. Thinking that his marriage plans are doomed, he encounters the same palm reader by the bank of the river Thames - and suddenly realises that his task, at last, can be fulfilled
A Woman of no importance by Oscar Wilde( Book )

153 editions published between 1893 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 813 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'A Woman of No Importance' fuses comedy of manners with high melodrama, a serious protest against gender inequality ornately framed with perfect witticisms. At Lady Hunstanton's country house party, the quips are dazzling and the company is impeccably sophisticated - but beneath the laconic wit of society's elite is brewing a turbulent drama of social double standards and sexual hypocrisy. Gerald Arbuthnot is a young man on the make, with an American heiress and the post of secretary to the brilliant but dissolute Lord Illingworth within his reach. But when he asks his mother to celebrate with them, it is discovered that Lord Illingworth is Gerald's father, who seduced and abandoned his mother twenty years earlier. Horrified to find her son singing the praises of her seducer, Mrs Arbuthnot refuses to allow Gerald to continue in his service, and Gerald must choose between his wronged mother and a glittering career. Oscar Wilde's society comedy was first staged at the Haymarket theatre in London in 1893
