9780146001604: The Portrait of Mr. W. H. (Classic, 60s)

In 1609 the first edition of Shakespeare's Sonnets was published - containing the mysterious dedication: to 'Mr W.H.' Ever since, the identity of Mr. W.H. has been the subject of a series of fascinating theories - but none quite so ingenious as that of Oscar Wilde's The Portrait of Mr W.H.

From the Publisher:

Hesperus Press, as suggested by their Latin motto, Et remotissima prope, is dedicated to bringing near what is far—far both in space and time. Works by illustrious authors, often unjustly neglected or simply little known in the English–speaking world, are made accessible through a completely fresh editorial approach and new translations. Through these short classic works, which feature forewords by leading contemporary authors, the modern reader will be introduced to the greatest writers of Europe and America. An elegantly designed series of genuine rediscoveries.

About the Author:

Irish poet and dramatist most famous for his sophisticated and brilliantly witty plays. Wilde’s most popular works are "Lady Wintermere's Fan" and "The Importance of Being Earnest". His fairy tales are also enduringly popular.
