About this deal

I'm reading this whole collection, but will be reviewing the individual reads separately as I go along, so don't be all confused by the otherwise seemingly random posting of Wilde stories and plays. The COMPLETE poetry, with special Chronological and Alphabetical contents tables – find that special poem quickly! While at Oxford, he became involved in the aesthetic movement and became an advocate for ‘Art for Art’s Sake’. Oscar Wilde, born in the 19th Century and dying in the new 20th Century - was truly an artist of the 20th Century. Large soft cover, 857 pages, flat uncreased spine, tight square and clean, mild toning to page edges, Very Good Plus condition.

By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. Pages, Text Clean, Book Tight, Dust Jacket been torn by spine been repaired close tear, near bottom of dust jacket a small tear, Over all still nice book Condition of Book and Dust Jacket Fine/Good+.Original dark blue cloth, lettered in gilt to spine and with gilt circular motif to front; no dustjacket.

poi normale che le opere incompiute lascino invece l'amaro in bocca, vuoi per la monotonia (" Una tragedia fiorentina"), per l'insipidezza (" Constance o il signore e la signora Daventry") o per l'eccessiva enigmaticità (" La Sainte Courtisane"). Jacket with rubbing, light toning, faint sticker shadow on the front, a few tiny tears and light bumps. If one puts forward an idea to a true Englishman—always a rash thing to do—he never dreams of considering whether the idea is right or wrong. Lord Henry went out to the garden and found Dorian Gray burying his face in the great cool lilac-blossoms, feverishly drinking in their perfume as if it had been wine.Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde was born on the 16th October 1854 and died on the 30th November 1900. Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook).

Just turn your head a little more to the right, Dorian, like a good boy, said the painter, deep in his work and conscious only that a look had come into the lad’s face that he had never seen there before. Titles are as follows "The Duchess of Padua", "Lady Windermere's Fan", "Miscellanies", "The Picture of Dorian Gray", "Reviews", "Salome A Florentine Tragedy, and Vera". Republished as The Complete Letters of Oscar Wilde (2000), with letters discovered since 1962, and new annotations by Merlin Holland. The Collins Complete Works of Oscar Wilde is the only truly complete and authoritative single-volume edition of Oscar Wilde's works, and is available in both hardback and this paperback edition.

Starts with an introduction of Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde - October 16, 1854 - November 30, 1900. I have been enjoying it and would recommend others to taste writings- his drams, poems, letters, stories to the great extent.

I’m not even going to try to explain how much and why I love his work because as neither Critic nor Artist, I cannot do it justice. The nineteenth century dislike of romanticism is the rage of Caliban not seeing his own face in a glass. I look at what he's saying and think "hmmm, interesting that the Decadents take *part* of his stance - invention and artificiality - and discard others - by focusing on the dregs and degradation of real life". Intentions' and 'The Decay of Lying' may not be ground breaking, but they deserve a read to better understand what he meant by some of his most famous (and misunderstood!

A number of Wilde's letters and manuscripts can also be found at The British Library, as well as public and private collections throughout Britain, the United States and France.
