Anglo-­Irish writer Oscar Wilde is famous almost in equal parts for his life as for his literary legacy. A dandy, a self-­proclaimed cynic and a flamboyant homosexual at a time when it was illegal to be gay in the United Kingdom, he was simultaneously society’s greatest critic and a lightning rod for criticism.

His literary output, almost all written in the brief period 1889-­1895, consists of some of the greatest works of English literature. Included in this collection are:

The Picture of Dorian Gray (1890) - his only novel

Short Stories:
The Portrait of Mr. W. H. (1889)
The Happy Prince and Other Tales (1888) - a collection of fairy tales with a twist
A House of Pomegranates (1891) - a similar collection
Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime and Other Stories (1891) - a collection of contemporary fiction containing the famous The Canterville Ghost.

Plays (the most famous works of his lifetime):
The Importance of Being Earnest (1895)
Lady Windermere's Fan (1892)
A Woman of No Importance . . .

Selected Poems of Oscar Wilde (1911) is a collection of poetry Wilde wrote when he was twenty-­six years old. It is combined with some later works, including The Ballad of Reading Gaol, which displays Wilde's sensuousness and precocity. Though never well-­received, Wilde's poetry is quite unique and deserves more attention than critics have been willing to give it.
