The plays of Oscar Wilde by Oscar Wilde( Book )

90 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in English and held by 2,740 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

A Woman of no importance by Oscar Wilde( Book )

232 editions published between 1893 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,150 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

186 editions published between 1890 and 2015 in 10 languages and held by 1,025 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Soul of Man under Socialism Oscar Wilde expounds on an anarchist world view. Wilde argues that under capitalism the majority of people spoil their lives by an unhealthy and exaggerated altruism-are forced, indeed, so to spoil them: instead of realizing their true talents, they waste their time solving the social problems caused by capitalism, without taking their common cause away. Thus, caring people seriously and very sentimentally set themselves to the task of remedying the evils that they see in poverty, but their remedies do not cure the disease: they merely prolong it
