About the Book
Salome: A Tragedy in One Act (1891) is a play by Wilde. It presents the Biblical tale of the stepdaughter of Herod Antipas whose dancing caused the death of John the Baptist (Mark 6:21-29). The play explores Salome's two-fold desire to retain her virginity and to destroy male sexuality. Richard Strauss's opera was based on Wildes version of the Salome story.
About the Author
An eminent Irish playwright, novelist and poet, Wilde belonged to the late Victorian Era. Known for his role in Aesthetic and Decadent movements and his barbed wit, he was imprisoned on account of gross indecency for writing on taboo subjects.
