Summary (From the publisher):

At once rebel and conformist, Irishman and Englishman, secret homosexual and public paterfamilias, socialist and drawing-room dandy, Wilde embodied in himself the tensions and paradoxes of his age. This volume gathers together Wilde's two best-known plays, his most significant novel, two important essays and The Ballad of Reading Gaol, together with the letter written shortly after his release.
