About the Author
Born in Dublin in 1854, Oscar Wilde was educated at home till the age of nine. He attended the Portora Royal School, Enniskillen from 1864 to 1871. in 1874, he graduated from Trinity College, Dublin.
Wilde’s first play, Vera: Or the Nihilists, did not meet much success. He refined his ideas about art, its purpose and supremacy and incorporated themes of decadence, duplicity and beauty into his only novel, the Picture of Dorian Gray (1890). Continuing his interest in theatre he wrote Salome, a play in one act, in 1891.
Wilde became one of the most successful playwrights of the late Victorian London after producing four comedies—Lady Windermere’s Fan, a Woman of No Importance, an Ideal Husband and the Importance of Being Earnest. First performed in 1895 in collaboration with George Alexander at St. James’s Theater, London, the Importance of Being Earnest was considered Wilde’s masterpiece and continues to remain his most popular play. the Ballad of Reading Gaol, published in 1898, was his last work. Wilde died in 1900 at the age of 46, in Paris.

EDIT: After reading the Simon and Schuster edition, I also found that many lines from the play have been edited out on the printed pages of this edition. Don't buy it if you want the unabridged, unadulterated Oscar Wilde experience.
The Book is in good condition, compact and nicely bind. Delivery was good and in time.
