Overview

Oscar Wilde was one of the most distinguished men of British letters in the nineteenth century. An accomplished and versatile writer of fiction, drama, poetry, essays, and criticism, he was known for his bitting wit and fearless challenges to the aesthetic and literary conventions of his day.
 
The Picture of Dorian Gray and Other Works collects Wilde's complete fiction and plays, including The Picture of Dorian Gray, a novel condemned in its day as scandalous and immoral but recognized today as a landmark work of Victorian fiction. This volume also includes the full contents of Wilde's three short-fiction collections, Lord Arthur Saviles Crime and Other Stories, The Happy Prince and Other Tales and A House of Pomegranates, and all nine of Wilde's plays, including The Importance of Being Earnest, Lady Windermere's Fan, An Ideal Husband, and A Woman of No Importance.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

There are, as one critic noted, many Oscar Wildes. There is the haunting Wilde of The Picture of Dorian Gray; the sly fairytale concocter of The Happy Prince and Other Tales; and the quick-witted playwright of extreme bad manners. All of those Oscars are present in this stately addition to Barnes & Noble Leatherbound Classics series. This bargain-priced 848-page omnibus contains not only the aforementioned works but also contains the contents of Lord Arthur Savile's Crime and Other Stories, Wilde's little known The House of Pomegranates, and all nine Wilde plays, including the indestructible The Importance of Being Earnest, Lady Windermere's Fan, and The Ideal Husband.

    I had never read any of Oscar Wilde's works before purchasing this book, but always wanted to read Dorian Gray. I'm glad I picked it up. While it wasn't my favorite classical work of all time, it was well worth the purchase. Dorian Gray itself is a relatively short novel, it has some sections that drag a bit, but overall an interesting story. It seems filled with symbolism and can probably be interpreted in many ways. The short stories included are also worth reading and were entertaining. I had no problem finishing the whole work without getting bored. But of course this is purely subjective.

    The book itself is beautiful. The leather cover looks fantastic and is a great fit in any personal library. It feels durable and the silk bookmark just adds to the classy look. The cover feels good in your hands and for someone like me who loves hardcovers and heavy books it was perfect. I like the feel of the hard covers and the feel of turning the pages. Overall I'm very happy with the purchase and would recommended it to anyone who is a fan of classic liturature.

    I received the product today. It is a very beautiful book with a symbolic design; however, my only problem with it is that it is printed upside down!
