Salome

Salome
Author: Oscar Wilde
Format: Paperback
Pages: 40
Publisher: Wilder Publications (March 23, 2011)

Salome tells the Biblical story of Salome, stepdaughter of the tetrarch Herod Antipas, who, to her stepfather’s dismay but to the delight of her mother Herodias, requests the head of Jokanaan (John the Baptist) on a silver platter as a reward for dancing the Dance of the Seven Veils. A powerful tragedy, Wilde at his best.
