    Oscar Wilde took London by storm with his first comedy, Lady Windermere's Fan. The combination of dazzling wit, subtle social criticism, sumptuous settings and the theme of a guilty secret proved a winner, both here and in his next three plays, A Woman of No Importance, An Ideal Husband, and his undisputed masterpiece, The Importance of Being Earnest. This volume includes all Wilde's plays from his early tragedy Vera to the controversial Salome and the little known fragments, La Sainte Courtisane and A Florentine Tragedy. The edition affords a rare chance to see Wilde's best known work in the context of his entire dramatic output, and to appreciate plays which have hitherto received scant critical attention.

    O avtorju

    -Oscar Wilde-

    Otroška leta je preživel v Dublinu na Irskem, v svojem rojstnem kraju. Mati je bila pesnica, oče pa zdravnik. Wilde je hodil v dobre šole in je bil materialno preskrbljen. Že v mladosti je bil zelo razgledan in se je zanimal za umetnost. Študiral je na oxfordski univerzi, bil pa je tudi umetnostni in literarni proučevalec ter kritik in je pisal v različne angleške mesečnike. Pokazalo se je, da Oscar Wilde ni zaverovan v eno smer, temveč da je pisatelj širokega razpona. Ni obstal pri mladostnem pesnikovanju, ampak je znal pisati tudi dobro pripovedno prozo; med zvrstmi je obvladal pravljico, novelo in roman, komedijo in tragedijo in nenazadnje tudi elegantno oblikovan esej. Wilde si je utrl pot med najvišje sloje družbe. Povsod je bil cenjen gost, tako kot so cenjene tudi njegove knjige še danes. Zaradi svoje homoseksualne zveze so ga sodno preganjali, mu sodili in ga za dve leti poslali na prisilno delo v zloglasno kaznilnico. To se je zgodilo dve leti pred smrtjo.
