Oscar Wilde's dramatic private life has sometimes threatened to
overshadow his great literary achievements. His talent was
prodigious: the author of brilliant social comedies, fairy stories,
critical dialogues, poems, and a novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray.
In addition to Dorian Gray, this volume represents all these
genres, including such works as Lady Windermere's Fan and The
Importance of Being Earnest, 'The Happy Prince', 'The Critic as
Artist', and 'The Ballad of Reading Gaol'.
