OSCAR WILDE-COMPLETE STORIES (including The Picture of Dorian Gray)
Somehow or other I will be famous, and if not famous, I will be notorious', declared Oscar Wilde. He proved to be both. Oscar Wilde was a genius and he transformed his talent into his stories, plays and poems. The world in which Oscar Wilde lived was riddled with hypocrisy and he exposed it in his writings. His only novel, "The Picture of Dorian Gray' was published in Lippincott's Monthly Magazine in 1890 and provoked a storm of protest from the Victorian society. 'It is a tale spawned from the leprous literature of the French decadents - a poisoned book, the atmosphere of which is heavy with mephitic odours of moral and spiritual putrefaction', wrote the critic from the Daily Chronicle. Oscar Wilde wrote a preface, which appeared separately in the Fortnightly Review in March 1891. It contains the famous passage : 'Books are well written, or badly written. That is all'. This volume contains Oscar Wilde's only novel, 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' and all other stories. All stories are complete & unabridged.

SAKI- The Complete Short Stories
Saki (Hector Hugh Munro) is best known for his witty, sometimes whimsical, often cynical and bizarre short stories. His best tales are often more macabre than Kipling's. In his early stories, Saki often portrayed eccentric characters, familiar from Oscar Wilde's plays. Saki's most frequently anthologized short stories are Tobermory', 'Sredni Vastar', 'The Unrest Cure' etc. He was a misogynist, anti-semite, and reactionary, who also did not take himself too serious. His stories, 'true enough to be interesting and not true enough to be tiresome', were considered ideal reading for schoolboys. However, Saki did not have any interest in safeguarding the Edwardian way of life. In this volume, we present a complete collection of his short stories. All stories are complete & unabridged.
