Overview: The classic by Latin America's finest writer of the twentieth century-a true literary sensation-with an introduction by cyber-author William Gibson. The groundbreaking trans-genre work of Argentinian writer Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986) has been insinuating itself into the structure, stance, and very breath of world literature for well over half a century. Multi-layered, self-referential, elusive, and allusive writing is now frequently labeled Borgesian. Umberto Eco's international bestseller, The Name of the Rose, is, on one level, an elaborate improvisation on Borges' fiction "The Library," which American readers first encountered in the original 1962 New Directions publication of Labyrinths. This new edition of Labyrinths, the classic representative selection of Borges' writing edited by Donald A. Yates and James E. Irby (in translations by themselves and others), includes the text of the original edition (as augmented in 1964) as well as Irby's biographical and critical essay, a poignant tribute by Andre Maurois, and a chronology of the author's life. Borges enthusiast William Gibson has contributed a new introduction bringing Borges' influence and importance into the twenty-first century.

Kentin yükseklerinde uzun bir sütunun üzerinde Mutlu Prens'in heykeli yükselmekteydi. Prens'in tüm gövdesi küçük saf altın yapraklarla kaplanmıştı. Gözlerinin yerinde iki parlak safir sönüyor, kılıcının kabzasında kırmızı bir yakut parlıyordu. Gerçekten çok beğeniliyordu Prens. Şehir meclisi üyelerinden biri ince bir sanat anlayışı olduğunu kanıtlamak istercesine, heykel hakkında ''Bir rüzgargülü kadar güzel,'' yorumunu yapmış, sonra da insanların onun pratik düşünen biri olmadığı düşüncesine kapılacağı kaygısıyla ''Ama onun kadar işe yaramıyor!'' diye eklemişti.

Volume IV of the Oxford English Texts Complete Works of Oscar Wilde is the first variorum edition of Wilde's major critical writing; it includes the critical essays which were re-published in book-form in his life-time - that is, those anthologised in Intentions and The Soul of Man - as well as his graduate essay usually known by the title The Rise of Historical Criticism, but which this volume titles Historical Criticism. The Introduction gives a detailed account of the composition of each of the essays: it gives a new explanation for the relationship between the 'The Decay of Lying' and 'Pen, Pencil, and Poison' (arguing that they are best understood as companion pieces); it provides the first concrete demonstration that Wilde did, on occasions, knowingly 'copy' his own work; and it reveals that substantial cuts were made to some of Wilde's essays (without his full consent) by the periodical editors with whom he worked. The edition also provides, for the first time, a full collation of the textual variants between the published versions of Wilde's essays (that is, both book and periodical), and all extant manuscripts; in addition it establishes a new, authoritative text for Historical Criticism, based on an examination of the original manuscript, which differs significantly from that printed by Robert Ross in his 1908 Collected Edition (and subsequently reprinted in the Collins Complete Works). The annotation to the edition reveals the full extent of Wilde's 'borrowings' both from his own work, and from other writers; it also reveals that much of Historical Criticism is in fact paraphrasing or translating well-known classical texts, and that the some of denseness of the argument is due to ellipses in Wilde's text that were disguised by earlier editors.

Oscar Wilde was already one of the best known literary figures in Britain when he was persuaded to turn his extraordinary talents to the theatre. Between 1891 and 1895 he produced a sequence of distinctive plays which spearheaded the dramatic renaissance of the 1890s and retain their power today. The social comedies, Lady Windermere's Fan, A Woman of No Importance, and An Ideal Husband, offer a moving as well as witty dissection of society and its morals, with a sharp focus on sexual politics. By contrast, the experimental, symbolist Salome, written originally in French, was banned for public performance by the English censor. His final dramatic triumph was his `trivial' comedy for serious people, The Importance of Being Earnest' arguably the greatest farcical comedy in English. Under the General Editorship of Dr Michael Cordner of the University of York, the texts of the plays have been newly edited and are presented with modernized spelling and punctuation. In addition, there is a scholarly introduction and detailed annotation.

Oscar Wilde was a courageous individualist whose path-breaking life and work were shaped in the crucible of his time and place, deeply marked by the controversies of his era. This collection of concise and illuminating articles reveals the complex relationship between Wilde's work and ideas and contemporary contexts including Victorian feminism, aestheticism and socialism. Chapters investigate how Wilde's writing was both a resistance to and quotation of Victorian master narratives and genre codes. From performance history to film and operatic adaptations, the ongoing influence and reception of Wilde's story and work is explored, proposing not one but many Oscar Wildes. To approach the meaning of Wilde as an artist and historical figure, the book emphasises not only his ability to imagine new worlds, but also his bond to the turbulent cultural and historical landscape around him - the context within which his life and art took shape.

"This comprehensive and authoritative collection of Oscar Wilde's American interviews affords readers a fresh look at the making of a literary legend. Better known in 1882 as a cultural icon than a serious writer (at twenty-six years old, he had by then published just one volume of poems), Wilde was brought to North America for a major lecture tour on Aestheticism and the decorative arts that was organized to publicize a touring opera, Gilbert and Sullivan's Patience, which lampooned him and satirized the Aesthetic "movement" he had been imported to represent." "In this year-long series of broadly distributed and eagerly read newspaper interviews, Wilde excelled as a master of self-promotion. He visited major cities from New York to San Francisco but also small railroad towns along the way, granting interviews to newspapers wherever asked. With characteristic aplomb, he adopted the role as the ambassador of Aestheticism, and reporters noted that he was dressed for the part. He wooed and flattered his hosts everywhere, pronouncing Miss Alsatia Allen of Montgomery, Alabama, the most beautiful young lady he had seen in the United States, adding, "This is a remark, my dear fellow, I supposed I have made of some lady in every city I have visited in this country. It could be appropriately made. American women are very beautiful."".

Keşke tersi olabilseydi! Keşke her zaman genç kalacak olan ben olsaydım da portrem yaşlansaydı! Bunun için... bunun için her şeyi verirdim!" Özellikle bir genç adamın büyümesini, eğitimini, gelişimini, kendini ve inançlarını keşfetmesini işleyen Dorian Gray'in Portresi için Oscar Wilde, 'bir ruhun hikayesi' demişti. 1891'de ilk basıldığında ahlaksızlığı yücelttiği gerekçesiyle büyük tepki çeken romanın baş kişileri olan Lord Henry ile Dorian'ın karşılıklı etkileşimleri, Dorian'ın kendini giderek kötüye, şeytani olana, hazcılığa adaması kitabın eksenini oluşturuyor. Son derece saf ve yakışıklı Dorian'daki değişim, Lord Henry'nin sözleriyle ve Dorian'ın kendi portresinde kendi güzelliğini keşfetmesiyle başlar. Lord Henry'nin etkisiyle kötülüğün ve zevkin çekimine kapılan, dünyada gençlik ve güzellikten önemli bir şey olmadığına inanan Dorian için heyecan, kötülükte ve günahtadır; iyilik ve erdemse sıkıcıdır, edilgendir. İyiliği temsil eden Basil'in Dorian'a duyduğu saf tutkuda eşcinsellik öğeleri açıkça hissedilir. Dorian'ın büyük sırrını, portredeki değişimi gören yalnızca Basil olur. Portreye odaklanan, sonsuz gençlik karşısında ruhunu satan ve ruhunun ölmüş olmasından korkan Dorian için kurtuluş var mıdır? Ve Oscar Wilde'ın dediği gibi, herkes Dorian Gray'da kendi günahını mı görecektir?
