Overview

A pivotal figure in nineteenth-century literature, Oscar Wilde was a multitalented and multifaceted writer. His large and diverse body of work includes immensely popular stage plays that made him the most celebrated playwright of his day, the highly regarded novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, several collections of exquisitely crafted short fiction, critical essays that influenced how the world looks at art, and elegant verse.

 

This 2012 omnibus edition of Wilde's writing collects the full contents of his short-fiction collection Lord Arthur Savile's Crime and Other Stories, and his two collections of fairy tales for young readers, The Happy Prince and Other Tales and A House of Pomegranates. Also included is The Picture of Dorian Gray, a novel that scandalized Victorian England when it was published in 1891, and that has since been acknowledged a brilliant commentary on art and the society depicted in it. The volume concludes with all nine stage plays that Wilde finished in his lifetime--among them the masterpieces of wit and comedy, "The Importance of Being Earnest" and "An Ideal Husband," and the florid chamber dramas "Salome" and "La Sainte Courtisane."

 

The Picture of Dorian Gray and Other Works is one of Barnes & Noble's Collectible Editions classics editions. Each volume features authoritative texts by the world's greatest authors in a beautifully designed bonded-leather binding, with distinctive gilt edging and an attractive silk-ribbon bookmark. Decorative, durable, and collectible, these books offer hours of reading pleasure and are an indispensible cornerstone for any home library.

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's Collectible Editions 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!
