Read full description of the books An Ideal Husband; A Woman of No Importance:Written in the late 1800's, "An Ideal Husband" and "A Woman of No Importance" are peppered with the unmistakable wit and satire that made Oscar Wilde one of the most famous literary figures of his era. Now available together for the first time in this unique Signet Classic edition, both plays--centered on characters hiding terrible, scandalous secrets--offer dark foreshadowing of the dramatic course Wilde's own life was to take.
Read information about the authorOscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde was an Irish playwright, poet and author of numerous short stories and one novel. Known for his biting wit, and a plentitude of aphorisms, he became one of the most successful playwrights of the late Victorian era in London, and one of the greatest celebrities of his day. Several of his plays continue to be widely performed, especially The Importance of Being Earnest.
As the result of a widely covered series of trials, Wilde suffered a dramatic downfall and was imprisoned for two years hard labour after being convicted of "gross indecency" with other men. After Wilde was released from prison he set sail for Dieppe by the night ferry. He never returned to Ireland or Britain, and died in poverty.
