The Short Stories of Oscar Wilde: An Annotated Selection, published by Harvard University Press, features nine short stories published between 1887 and 1891 that highlight “Wilde’s trademark wit, style, and sharp social criticism,” according to the publisher, which adds that they are “the perfect distillation of one of the Victorian era’s most remarkable writers.”
