Pub. Date: 12/02/1986
Publisher: Penguin Publishing Group
Five of Oscar Wilde's wittiest and best-known plays, including Lady Windermere's Fan, his first great stage success, and Lord Alfred Douglas's translation of Salome, which Wilde originally wrote in French. Of The Importance of Being Ernest, his most famous play, Wilde wrote: 'It is exquisitely trivial, a delicate bubble of fancy, and it has its philosophy... that we should treat all the trivial things of life seriously, and all the serious things of life with sincere and studtied triviality.'
