About this deal

Okay, as recently, I'm mopping up some titles from "To Read Short Fiction Lists", genre and lit, and as I'm in the W's. The edition I read was fully illustrated and I think that enhanced my reading experience, so a short thank you to all talented artists that contributed to this book! I hate the way you talk about your married life, Harry, said Basil Hallward, strolling towards the door that led into the garden. It contains his only novel, 'The Portrait of Dorian Gray', as well as his plays, stories, poems, essays and letters, all in their most authoritative texts.

They seemed to be able to give a plastic form to formless things, and to have a music of their own as sweet as that of viol or of lute. Continuously in print since 1948, the Collins Complete Works of Oscar Wilde has long been recognised as the most comprehensive and authoritative single-volume collection of Wilde's texts available, containing his only novel, The Portrait of Dorian Gray, as well as his plays, stories, poems, essays and letters, all in their most authoritative texts. Wilde’s famous comedies such as The Importance of Being Earnest (1895) have been in repertory for decades; his only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray (1890, revised 1891), remains a staple of university literature syllabi; and his work has been translated into so many languages that he assuredly ranks as a world author.The sullen murmur of the bees shouldering their way through the long unmown grass, or circling with monotonous insistence round the dusty gilt horns of the straggling woodbine, seemed to make the stillness more oppressive.

The world belongs to you for a season… The moment I met you I saw that you were quite unconscious of what you really are, of what you really might be.Whenever I have gone there, there have been either so many people that I have not been able to see the pictures, which was dreadful, or so many pictures that I have not been able to see the people, which was worse.
