Marissa's Books & Gifts, LLC

A unique one-volume anthology which includes all of Wilde's stories, plays, and poems, a large portion of his essays and letters, and an introduction by Wilde's son, Vyvyan Holland. The Importance of Being Earnest is given in the original four-act version, with readings from the revised edition, while “De Profundis,” his moving and tragic letter to Lord Alfred Douglas, is from the manuscript held by the British Museum until 1960-the only complete and accurate source. This is the first one-volume anthology to include “The Portrait of Mr. W.H.,” in which Wilde expanded his theory concerning the mystery of Shakespeare’s sonnets, and also, “A Few Maxims for the Instruction of the Over-Educated,” a series of aphorisms typical of Wilde.
