Salome (English and Frenc. I have really enjoyed reading many of his books and now this book originally wrote for the theater brings a great story with something which I think was not usual in Oscar wilde's stories.

The Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde is a light-hearted novella that parodies gothic horror as well as cultural differences between the United States and the United Kingdom.

Salomé was written by Oscar Wilde at Torquay in the winter of 1891-2. The initial idea of treating the subject came to him some time previously, after seeing in Paris a well-known series of Gustave Moreau's pictures inspired by the same theme

Salomé was written by Oscar Wilde at Torquay in the winter of 1891-2. The initial idea of treating the subject came to him some time previously, after seeing in Paris a well-known series of Gustave Moreau's pictures inspired by the same theme. A good deal has been made of his debt to Flaubert's tale of Herodias.

Wilde wrote Salome in French and translated it to English several years later. The play was refused a license by the Lord Chamberlain, since it was illegal to depict biblical characters. It was eventually performed in Paris, but the ban in England stood for almost forty years.

Wilde, Oscar (1854-1900) - An Irish-born English poet, novelist, and playwright. Salome (1893) - Originally written in French by Wilde, Lord Alfred Douglas translated Salome into English. Considered an eccentric, he was the leader of the aesthetic movement that advocated art for art’s sake and was once imprisoned for two years with hard labor for homosexual practices. Richard Strauss later used this play as the basis for the libretto for his famous opera of the same name.

Wilde explained to a French journalist at the time, One of the most famous pieces of Wilde’s self-mythology concerns the composition of this play. He claimed to have gone out one evening to a café and told the musicians: ‘I am writing a play about a woman dancing with her bare feet in the blood of a man she has craved for and slain. I want you to play something in harmony with my thoughts. The band, Wilde alleged, played ‘such wild and terrible music that those who were there stopped talking and looked at each other with blanched faces. Then I went and finished Salomé'

Comments to eBook Salome (English and French Edition)
Keth
Short play showing Wilde's and Richard Strauss'admiration for this story of the Bible.

Salome, beautiful, young, willful beauty who knows how to use her strengths to get what she wants, especially from those who desire her intensely.

Although once satisfied her desire, in this case the kiss to the beheaded John the Baptist, does not get all the satisfaction she would have expected.

Masterpiece that in a few pages describes with great skill, beautiful language and thoughts the human weaknesses."

--------

Corta obra teatral que muestra la admiración de Wilde por este relato de la Biblia y en la que posteriormente Richard Strauss, el gran compositor romántico de la segunda mita del siglo XIX se inspiró para su ópera del mismo nombre.

Salomé, mujer hermosa, joven, voluntariosa que sabe aprovechar su belleza para obtener lo que quiere, en especial de quienes la desean con intensidad, como su padrastro Herodes. Aunque una vez saciado su deseo, en este caso el beso a la cabeza decapitada de Juan Bautista, no obtiene toda la satisfacción que hubiera esperado.

Obra maestra que en unas pocas páginas describe con gran habilidad, hermoso lenguaje y reflexiones, las debilidades del ser humano.

Do not buy the version of this book sold through Amazon and published by Branden Books. It is an ebook printout with blank pages and a pixellated cover. $10 is a rip-off for the quality of book that you get in this case.

There are many sections of English text that does not have the corresponding German translation-just a blank space. Also, there were some slightly annoying mistranslations such as first officer being translated as second officer. Another reviewer mentioned that it looks like an ebook print out-I agree.
Purestone
If you like "The King in Yellow" and you want to read the original forbidden play, then this is as close as you'll ever come! Blasphemous, scandalous and banned in its own time, Salome is just as shocking today as it was in the late 19th century. Read it for yourself to see why.
kolos
nasty sexual overtones throughout the play--Salome was one kinky girl. Wilde gets the oppressive atmosphere exactly right.

But instead I got this wonderful hardback, 1945 Heritage Club edition with absolutely stunning illustrations. I'll still have to get the Dover Thrift edition for class unfortunately but I'll probably end up keeping this one anyway.
Oscar wild was a great author and I think all his writtings are excellent. I have really enjoyed reading many of his books and now this book originally wrote for the theater brings a great story with something which I think was not usual in Oscar wilde's stories. So if you want to get a great book and go further from a writer's words, Oscar wilde is a great option to enjoy and Analyze, I do.
