The Best of Oscar Wilde: Selected Plays and Writings | Oscar Wilde
2 posts | 1 read | 1 to read
Oscar Wildes infamous wit, taste for scandal, and gift for revealing the hypocrisies of fashionable society are on display here in this collection of his finest plays. A genius both of and ahead of his time, he built his craft on the eternal questions of right and wrongwith pithy dialogue as fresh today as when it was written. In addition to Wildes five major plays, this Signet Classics edition contains: Two interviews with the playwright at the peak of his career, in which Wilde discusses his workand his critics Some of his most brilliant critical writing, in which he discusses the nature of art in terms that anticipate much of todays literary theory An appendix that restores valuable lines that appeared in the original text of The Importance of Being Earnest With an Introduction by Sylvan Barnet and a New Afterword by Marylu Hill

#GratefulReads: I‘m using two of my favorite playwrights for #favoriteauthor, #notsofavoriteauthor & #aplay prompts.

Oscar Wilde is one of my absolute faves. His wit is second to none, but he also has this dark side and genius when it comes to analyzing art. I could read him all day!

I love Shakespeare, but some of his work really hits home with me and some just glances off the mark — and I enjoy a variety of his work! Maybe I‘ll grow into it.
