Description

It contains his only novel, The Portrait of Dorian Gray as well as his plays, stories, poems, essays and letters.

Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) counts among the best known and most quoted modern authors, who enjoyed - until the sensation caused by his 1895 trial and two-year prison sentence - a dazzling career as a major essayist, fabulist, dramatist, and poet. Those who are faithful know only the trivial side of love: it is the faithless who know love’s tragedies.By arrangement with the trade publisher, Methuen, 195 copies (and five "presentation and reference copies") were published as an "autographed limited de luxe edition" which appeared simultaneously with the trade impression.

Harry, said Basil Hallward, looking him straight in the face, every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter.Wilde’s famous comedies such as The Importance of Being Earnest (1895) have been in repertory for decades; his only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray (1890, revised 1891), remains a staple of university literature syllabi; and his work has been translated into so many languages that he assuredly ranks as a world author.

The studio was filled with the rich odour of roses, and when the light summer wind stirred amidst the trees of the garden, there came through the open door the heavy scent of the lilac, or the more delicate perfume of the pink-flowering thorn.

I am usually not one for poetry and only read poems if it is absolutely neccessary but I felt needed to give Wilde's a chance, especially since they are of his earliest work, when he was, whom I like to regard as, Baby-Wilde. He is a journalist and the author of 'The Wilde Album' and 'Irish Peacock and Scarlet' both also published by Fourth Estate.

The first version of "The Picture of Dorian Gray" was published, in a form highly edited by the magazine, as the lead story in the July 1890 edition of Lippincott's Monthly Magazine.

Your rank and wealth, Harry; my brains, such as they are—my art, whatever it may be worth; Dorian Gray’s good looks—we shall all suffer for what the gods have given us, suffer terribly.

One can survive everything, nowadays, except death, and live down everything except a good reputation.
