While Oscar Wilde's delightfully-witty comedies of manners receive the most fanfare from the general public and much of academia, Wilde's most "serious" play-Salome-rightfully deserves an equal amount of attention. Written by emerging scholars, established scholars, and notable Wilde scholars at the top of the field, the far-ranging essays in this book-the first collection solely on Wilde's Salome-provide new readings of the play, allowing us to better assess how and why Salome either fits or does not fit into Wilde's oeuvre. Framed in a new light in this collection, this fuller understanding of Salome should potentially change the way we read both Salome and Wilde's entire oeuvre.
