Renowned opera of the same name This volume reprints the complete text of the first English edition published in 1894 and also includes A Note on Salomé by Robert Ross Wilde's lifelong friend and literary executor Students lovers of literature and drama and admirers of Oscar Wilde and his remarkable literary gifts will rejoice in this inexpensive edition. This one was kind of odd Very short it s hard to imagine it being performed as an actual play It must have been an incredibly short play The story was a bit strange but apparently it is adapted from or at least inspired by a particular biblical story that I m not familiar with so I guess that s why It was definitely interesting though

    First of all I had no idea this was a one act play Then I found out it was originally written in French while Oscar Wilde was in exile in Paris to avoid the Victorian censorshipSalome is a tale of complex passion Oscar Wilde's Salome is not an instrument of Herodias She's a a sensual sensitive lover who turns i
