Published five years after Wilde’s successful novel The Picture of Dorian Gray (1890), this was Wilde’s most successful play and became an instant hit when it opened in London in February, 1895. While some view this play as simply a device to show off Wilde’s clever witticisms and word play, others consider it an insightful social comedy. Whatever your view, it is essential reading for anyone interested in Wilde and his times.
