"Wilde: Salome is a detailed, well-thought, and meticulously researched account of an often-ignored play by a major playwright." Jonathan Chambers, Victorian Studies

This edition is the first book-length study of Oscar Wilde's play Salome. Often drawing on little-known sources, the authors provide a detailed stage-history of the controversial work, and its transformation into opera, dance and film with major innovators.

By H. Starrenburg on January 23, 2013
Format: Hardcover
Oscar Wilde's play called 'Salome'--being somewhat controversial--has over the years drawn much attention to itself, more so in its early years, then later on. Having said that, there seems to be a renewed interest in it these days.

Performances and actors are being nanalysed in this book, and actor's opinions mentioned. Press and censorship reactions before and after performances are being discussed. It is indeed--as far as I can see--a compresensive study of the play's adventures.

I enjoyed this interesting book, and am happy to recommend it.
