Summary
Oscar Wilde infamous wit, taste for scandal, and gift for revealing the hypocrisies of fashionable society are on display in this collection of his ... plays.... In addition to his five major plays, this ... edition contains: two interviews with the playwright at the peak of his career in which [he] discusses his--and his critics; some of his ... criticism in which he examines the nature of art in terms in terms that anticipate much of today's literary theory; and an appendix that restores valuable lines from the original text of The importance of being earnest. -Back cover
