A Woman of No Importance by Oscar Wilde Book Resume:

“A Woman of No Importance” is an 1893 play in four acts by Oscar Wilde. First performed at the Haymarket Theatre in London, it represents a razor-sharp satire of England's aristocratic society in the late nineteenth century. Exceedingly witty and highly enjoyable, “A Woman of No Importance” is highly recommended for theatre lovers and those who have enjoyed other works by Wilde. Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde (1854–1900) was an Irish poet and playwright who became one of the most popular in London during the 1880s and 1890s. Well-known for his sharp wit and extravagant attire, Wilde was a proponent of aestheticism and wrote in a variety of forms including poetry, fiction, and drama. He was famously imprisoned for homosexual acts from 1895 to 1897 and died at the age of 46, just three years after his release. A fantastic play brimming with Wilde's trademark wit not to be missed by fans of his seminal work. Other notable works by this author include: “Picture of Dorian Gray” (1890), “Salome” (1891), and “The Importance of Being Earnest” (1895). Read & Co.

During his writing career, Oscar Wilde became known for his involvement in the rising philosophy of aestheticism. The opportunity to construct aesthetic details precisely, and combine them with larger social themes, drew Wilde to write drama. He started with philosophical dialogues and tragedies, and later moved on to comedies. Wilde produced several society comedies in the early 1890s, which made him one of the most successful playwrights of late-Victorian London. With these plays, he finally found a way to critique society on its own terms.

The Importance of Being Earnest is a comedy in three acts, written by Oscar Wilde and first published in 1895. A great classic for every person interested in Oscar Wilde and his legacy. Wilde wrote it quickly, but then extensively revised and shortened this work to create a gem. Despite its apparent humour, the play addresses the state of Victorian society; indeed, it is subtitled 'A Trivial Comedy for Serious People.'

The Importance of Being Earnest and Other Plays by Oscar Wilde Book Resume:

Lady Windermere's Fan/Salomé/A Woman of No Importance/An Ideal Husband/A Florentine Tragedy/The Importance of Being Earnest 'To lose one parent may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks like carelessness' The Importance of Being Earnest is a glorious comedy of mistaken identity, which ridicules codes of propriety and etiquette. Snobbery and hypocrisy are also laid bare in Lady Windermere's Fan, A Woman of No Importance and An Ideal Husband, while in Salomé and A Florentine Tragedy, Wilde uses historical settings to explore the complex relationship between sex and power. The range of these plays displays Wilde's delight in artifice, masks and disguises, and reveals the pretensions of the social world in which he himself played such a dazzling and precarious part.

Lusitania 1915, la dernière traversée by Erik LARSON Book Resume:

Erik Larson raconte avec virtuosité la tragédie du Lusitania, un épisode crucial et trouble de la Première Guerre mondiale. 1er mai 1915. Tandis que la Première Guerre mondiale entame son dixième mois, le Lusitania, luxueux paquebot britannique, quitte New York pour rejoindre Liverpool. Près de 2 000 passagers profitent des équipements modernes de ce navire puissant et rapide surnommé " le lévrier des mers ". L'Allemagne a classé en zones de guerre les mers entourant l'Angleterre mais le capitaine, William Thomas Turner, connait les règles interdisant les attaques de bateaux civils. Dans le périmètre du paquebot, à bord du sous-marin allemand U-20, le Kapitänleutnant Walther Schwieger décide néanmoins de passer outre ces règles. Le 7 mai, les deux vaisseaux progressent vers Liverpool et les pièces du puzzle – notamment l'orgueil, un brouillard fortuit et un secret bien gardé – s'assemblent pour produire l'un des pires désastres de l'histoire. Avec un sens de l'intrigue digne des plus grands thrillers, Erik Larson nous embarque dans l'atmosphère suffocante du sous-marin, éclairant d'une lumière inédite ces faits historiques qui contribuèrent à faire entrer les États-Unis dans la Première Guerre mondiale. Nous vivons l'exaltation, la peur, la panique... La réalité dépasse toujours la fiction.

The Drama of Marriage by J. Clum Book Resume:

In studying performances of marriage in modern and contemporary British and American drama, Clum highlights the fact that - paradoxically - at a time when theatre was both popular entertainment and high culture, many of the most commercially and artistically successful plays about marriage were written by homosexual men. Beginning with Oscar Wilde and focusing on some of the most successful British and American playwrights of the past century, including Somerset Maugham, Noël Coward, Terence Rattigan, and Emlyn Williams in England and Clyde Fitch, George Kelly, Tennessee Williams, William Inge, and Edward Albee in the US, The Drama of Marriagelooks at how the plays they wrote about heterosexual marriage continue to impact contemporary gay playwrights and the depiction of marriage today.

Best of Oscar Wilde by Oscar Wilde Book Resume:

Widely known for his wit and flamboyance, Oscar Wilde was a great advocate of art for art’s sake. This charming collection of his prose and drama includes his most evocative works complete with his first, and only, novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, a tale of pure beauty and unadulterated decadence. Also included are his fascinating short stories, like the delightful tale of The Happy Prince and the poignant satire, The Birthday of the Infanta with its much darker overtones. Among his plays are comedies such as Lady Windermere’s Fan and A Woman of No Importance, seemingly trivial but mercilessly exposing Victorian hypocrisies. The book also includes the controversial and macabre tragedy, Salomé which was designed to make his audience shudder by its depiction of unnatural passion. Vividly engaging and beautifully illustrated, Jaico Classics’ edition of Oscar Wilde’s timeless work is musthave for a true lover of literature and art.
