Selected Poems of Oscar Wilde

Contents:
Author: Oscar Wilde

[Preface]

It is thought that a selection from Oscar Wilde’s early verses may be of interest to a large public at present familiar only with the always popular BALLAD OF READING GAOL, also included in this volume. The poems were first collected by their author when he was twenty-sex years old, and though never, until recently, well received by the critics, have survived the test of NINE editions.
Readers will be able to make for themselves the obvious and striking contrasts between these first and last phases of Oscar
Wilde’s literary activity. The intervening period was devoted almost entirely to dramas, prose, fiction, essays, and criticism.
