The Complete Works of
For seven glittering years Wilde strutted through fashionable salons, tasting the heady wine of society’s adoring patronage. His stories outraged society, but while his ‘victims’ remained infatuated with his genius he was safe.
But an immoral relationship with society rake, Lord Alfred Douglas, which ended in a writ for slander and eventual imprisonment, caused his downfall. Society, once smiling, always fawning – had taken its revenge.
This sumptuous 3-volume edition in deep red Kidron contains all Wilde’s stories, including the shattering disquieting Picture of Dorian Gray, witty plays like The Importance Of Being Earnest, and his profoundly moving poems, essays and letters.
