Descrição da editora
This volume contains the original, overtly homoerotic version of the book that first appeared in 1890. Following the novel is a series of critical reviews of the book along with letters defending his work, which Wilde wrote to the various publication editors. There is also a detailed list of the passages expurgated from this first edition along with an account of Wilde's trial, in which the prosecutor constantly refers, quite naturally, to the original edition in trying to portray Wilde as homosexual. Other material regarding the novel is presented, as well. The foreword by John Cowper Powys is an inspired defense of Wilde himself and the genius of his personality. The edition contains a new introduction by editor Michael Wilson.
