More About The Best of Oscar Wilde by Oscar Wilde; Sylvan Barnet
 
 
 
Overview
Oscar Wilde's 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 wrong--with pithy dialogue as fresh today as when it was written.

In addition to Wilde's five major plays, this Signet Classics edition contains:

- Two interviews with the playwright at the peak of his career, in which Wilde discusses his work--and his critics

- Some of his most brilliant critical writing, in which he discusses the nature of art in terms that anticipate much of today's 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
