Introduction by Terry Eagleton

Oscar Wilde has been acknowledged as the wittiest writer in the English language. This collection proves that he was also one of the most versatile. Effortlessly achieved, each revealing a different aspect of his brilliance, all of the plays, prose writings, and poems gathered here support Wildeâ s belief that entertainment provides the best kind of edification. The works gathered here include Wildeâ s once-controversial and now classic novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, the rioutously (sic) comic plays â The Importance of Being Earnestâ and â Lady Windermereâ s Fan,â and the famous poem he wrote after being released from prison, â The Ballad of Reading Gaol.â This expanded new edition now includes the complete version of Wildeâ s moving letter from prison, De Profundis, and his teasing parable about Shakespeare, The Portrait of Mr. W. H. Other notable included writings are the semi-comic mystery story â Lord Arthurâ s Savileâ s Crimeâ and the essay The Soul of Man Under Socialism.

From the Publisher:

Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.

From the Back Cover:

Wilde lived out a conflict between his public identity and his private self; and this fissure between the two is interestingl typical of his age.
