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

11 editions published between 1909 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 11 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, Amazon.com

A Woman of no importance by Oscar Wilde( Book )

in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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
