This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher.

The third edition incorporates texts which were previously available only in difficult-to-obtain form as well as corrections and emendations to the text by the critic and columnist Merlin Holland, Oscar Wilde's grandson. It also includes newly-commissioned introductions to the poems, plays, stories and selected letters and journalism from such contributors as the biographer and critic Owen Dudley Edwards, and the Irish poet and scholar Declan Kiberd. The book retains the 1966 introduction by Oscar Wilde's son, Vyvyan Holland, and now also has a new introduction by Merlin Holland, explaining the significance of the text, with his observations on the public interest of the biography of Wilde by Richard Ellman.Product Description:
