In this marvelously inclusive anthology, Richard Aldington and Stanley Weintraub present the most quotable and influential of Wilde's writings. The novel The Picture of Dorian Gray and the plays Salome and The Importance of Being Earnest are included here in their entirety, along with the complete, unexpurgated text of the prison memoir De Profundis. In addition, there are selections from the comedies Lady Windermere's Fan, A Woman of No Importance, and An Ideal Husband; reviews, poems, fairy tales that Wilde originally wrote for his children, the dialogue "The Critic as Artist," letters, and the sardonic manifesto "Phrases and Philosophies for the Use of the Young." 741 pages.
