Descriptions du produit

From Library Journal

Collins is perhaps the single best edition of Wilde's complete works. Along with the author's full canon of plays, poems, essays, and novels, this also contains numerous appendixes of biographical information and chronologies of Wilde's work as well as examples of his famous one-liners divided into categories. This Centenary Edition was edited by his grandson Merlin, who made revisions to the text. (See also son Vyvyan Holland's autobiography, above.)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Brillantissime!!!!!!! 25 avril 2002
Format:Broché
Un recueil de toute l'oeuvre de Wilde parfait:tout d'abord parfait par l'oeuvre elle-même qui par sa diversité de genre est déjà remarquable. Un style incomparable et troublant. L'autre atout de ce volume est que les éditeurs ne se sont pas contentés de rassembler des écrits puis de les publier: à chaque genre son introduction complète et pertinente. C'est ici vraiment LE livre à offrir ou se faire offrir.

Tous les textes sont absolument fantastiques et reflètent tout le génie plein de tendresse et d'humanité de cet homme qui se cachait derrière ses bons mots apparemment futiles et versatiles.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Essential Oscar 24 mai 2002
Par Bill R. Moore - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Oscar Wilde was a self-described man of paradox. He was, simultaneously, a man very much of his time, and also very ahead of his time. He was a highly moral man who wrote clever epigrams about how good it is to be wicked ("Wickedness is a myth invented by good people to account for the curious attractiveness of others.") He was a happily married man who happily loved his two children but also led a gay life on the side and wrote hilarous satires of love and marriage ("Men marry because they are tired; women, because they are curious: both are disappointed.") This huge book, which contains practically everything that Wilde ever wrote, shows the man in all his glory. After the introduction by his son, we are first launched into Oscar's stories. His one novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, is a classic and a masterpiece. A devastating moral tale, this one deserves to be in everyone's library. His shorter pieces, however, are of a more questionable quality. Consisting mostly of moral ancedotes dressed up in the thinly-veiled guise of fairy tales for children, these works are the least exciting part of Wilde's oeuvre and of this book, and seem to lean heavily on his oft-spouted crutch of "Art for Art's sake." After the stories, we meet Wilde in the guise he was destined for: that of a dramatist. His play were an integral and ackwnoledged part of his genius, and their influence upon modern drama was enormous. His type of high, farcial "drawing room" comedy has left a permanent mark on the stage. It is easy to see how even the modern Hollywood sitcom sprung from these plays of Wilde's. However funny and biting the satire may be, though, the high point of Oscar Wilde's plays was always his epigram-laced dialogue - whatever the plot may be. Probably the finest - and most biting - aphorist the English language has ever produced, Wilde is probably quoted - whether people realize it or not - more often than any other source in the language, aside from The Bible and Shakespeare. The Importance of Being Earnest and Salome are his ackwnoledged masterpieces, but other plays - such as A Woman of No Importance and An Ideal Husband - are very good plays as well. He also has some very fine and underrated less original works, such as The Duchess of Padua that are quite well worth reading. From here, we move into Wilde's poems. Although, as he himself admits, they sometimes contain "more rhyme than reason", there is no doubting that Wilde was a master of language, and a fine poet. He won the Newdigate Prize for Poetry while at Oxford, and his "Ballad of Reading Gaol" is one of the finest poems in existence. What's left are his essays and letters. The most famous of them - indeed, one of the most famous letters ever written - is De Profundis, his strangely moving and tragic love/hate letter to Lord Alfred Douglas from prison. This is a shocking and immensely moving piece of work, and deserves to be read by one and all for its unique look into the human psyche - particuarly that of a man under intense suffering, and possibly on the brink. The letter is fascinating, and should put a different spin on Wilde than many people inaccurately have of the man - he was obviously of a very high moral character. Several interesting essays are also included - among them are The Critic As Artist and The Decay of Lying, two masterful pieces of Plato-istic dialogue, putting Wilde's severe wit and intimidating intellectualism on full display for all to see. One may wonder how much he actually believes of what he writes, but what he writes is brilliant. Another interesting essay is The Portrait of Mr. W.H., in which Wilde puts forth an interesting and unique theory about Shakespeare's sonnets. Also, while Wilde was not generally known for his political opinions, it is quite interesting to read his essay on political and social reform, The Soul of Man Under Socialism, as well as two letters he wrote about proposed reformations of the prison system.
All in all, this is a collection of masterful writings from one of the most tragically overlooked and underrated writers in the whole of literature. As another reviewer has pointed out, while Wilde rarely gets the credit he deserves for his work - and is often ignored, overlooked, or simply dismissed - his works are also widely and frequently plagarised - not to mention quoted legitimately - and were obviously extremely influential. You owe it to yourself to read the man's writings if you are not familar with his works; I guarantee you you won't regret it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 unworthy book design 11 mai 2000
Par MamaMorgs - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I gave this book 5 stars because the content of the book is superb - it is Oscar Wilde we're talking about here, after all. But I would like to comment on the actual publication itself. I can't believe that this is the best that Collins could come up with for a centenary edition. The paper is far too thin and the size of the book is also too small. The old Collins Complete Works edited by Vyvyan Holland was a much more attractive volume.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Actually a Complete Edition 8 juin 2005
Par Grantaire - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The Collins edition of Oscar Wilde's complete works is the only one I've ever found that actually is *complete*. It contains not only all of his plays, fairy tales, and short stories, but also most of his essays (some brilliant writing) and *all* his poems. Many books say they do, but there are a few tiny gems that oft go unnoticed (such as "Love Song" and a lovely little piece with no name). A truly wonderful edition of a truly wonderful writer, or, as Wilde himself might say, "Quite utterly lovely." Also, if I am not mistaken, contains several pages of pictures of Wilde and his family.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Delphi Classics Oscar Wilde Complete Works 5 septembre 2011
Par Ann de Vries - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Delphi has become my first choice when purchasing collected works of authors and their Oscar Wilde collection is one of several I have purchased from them. I can get public domain works for free, so a seller has to offer something more to convince me to pay for something I could get free. As with Delphi's other collections, this is a first rate product. The works are in one folder, which makes my Kindle library more manageable, but other sellers offer that convenience. The comprehensive, complete public domain contents, active table of contents, numerous photographs, numerous illustrations, biographical information, contextual notes, low price, ability to receive upgrades, etc., set Delphi's collections apart and make them a bargain. The buyer who constantly gives Delphi one-star reviews must have a personal vendetta, because the product is definitely deserving of 5 stars by any objective standards. Collections where copyright laws prevent inclusion of an author's total oeuvre, are as complete as legally possible, and this is not the seller's fault and is not a fraud. The seller clearly states that non-public domain works are not included. The collections are still a bargain, and one can always supplement them by filling in the gaps from other sources. I hope Delphi continues to add more authors to their catalogue, because I prefer their collections to anyone else's. As for the works themselves, this is Oscar Wilde and that says it all--five stars!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Soul of Man 13 février 2001
Par Martyn Richard Jones - Publié sur Amazon.com

Hi!
Curious thing about Oscar Wilde is that although he is frequently underrated, ignored, trivialized, forgotten or simply dismissed his works are also widely and frequently plagiarized. Not that he would care too much about that if he were alive.
This book is a great collection of literary works by one of the greatest writers in the English language. Ranging from prose, fairy tales and drama through poetry to social commentary. This book has something for (almost) everyone, it is a great companion on long journeys and a breath of fresh air compared with some of the stale and stagnant ruminations of many an airport paper-back hero.
Try it! it's good for the soul and the mind.
regards......
