This exclusive edition contains Oscar Wilde's complete stories, plays and poems, together with their original illustrations.

His novel, The Picture Of Dorian Gray, greeted on publication by a protest at its 'immoral' subject matter, is an ominous and fascinating story.

Also included are the elegant, sparklingly witty dramas for which Wilde is best known, such as The Importance of Being Earnest and Lady Windemere's Fan.

In addition, this volume gathers together all his poetry; his delightful collection of fairy tales, The Happy Prince and Other Stories and his witty, sophisticated stories such as Lord Arthur Savile's Crime.

About the Author

Oscar Wilde was born in Ireland in 1854 and educated in Dublin and Oxford. He became the leading exponent of aestheticism and a famous wit, intellectual and raconteur. He wrote children's stories, poetry, philosophical essays and several hugely popular plays, but The Picture of Dorian Gray was his only novel. The book was a succes de scandale, and later used as evidence against Wilde at the Old Bailey in 1895, when he was tried and imprisoned for homosexual acts. Wilde died in 1900 in exile in Paris.
