The four great comedies of Oscar Wilde, Lady Windermere's Fan, A Woman of No Importance, An Ideal Husbandand The Importance of Being Earnest, were all written at the height of the controversial Irish author's powers in his last, doomed decade, the 1890s. They remain among the most-loved, and most-quoted, of all drama in the English language. Along with Salome, his darkly decadent dramatization of the Bible story, these immortal plays have continued to pack theatres to this day, and have been adapted for every kind of media. The plays were originally published in book form at Wilde's own insistence, the better to spread his genius wide.

Illustrated by Aubrey Beardsley, with an afterword by Ned Halley.
