Offer runs from 12th March to 31st July 2024. Lowest 30 day price will be £17.49 from 12th April.

Hilarious, acute and affecting: a superb literary collection, capturing the laugh-out-loud ‘light’ and poignant ‘shade’ in the rich writing and life of Oscar Wilde (1854-1900). Mixing three of Wilde’s plays, 74 poems, 13 short stories or fairytales, and the unforgettable novel ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’, 1891: the works reflect the breadth of Oscar Wilde’s literary genius. From the sparkling comedies of social mores and manners, which saw Wilde become the toast of London with ‘Lady Windermere’s Fan’, 1892; ‘An Ideal Husband’; and ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’, 1895; to charming stories and fairytales, including ‘The Happy Prince’, ‘The Selfish Giant’, ‘The Canterville Ghost’, and ‘The Star Child’. Alongside an anthology of Wilde’s best-loved poetry, including ‘The Ballad of Reading Gaol’ and ‘Ravenna’; to the searing, epistolary ‘De Profundis’, written in Reading Gaol 1895-97. Presented in a compact slipcase, the set comprises: 'The Importance of Being Earnest and Other Plays'; 'The Picture of Dorian Gray', 'The Happy Prince and Other Stories'; 'De Profundis'; and 'The Ballad of Reading Gaol and Other Poems'.
