Oscar Wilde's Salomé: The Scandalous, Poetic Biblical Tragedy
Once dismissed as a borrowed patchwork of other writer's tales, Oscar Wilde's Salomé has been elevated in the minds of the literati in recent decades as readers have come to appreciate the lyrical beauty and symbolism of Wilde's one-act play. It's a grand departure from Wilde's typical Victorian comedy of manners, taking viewers far away to biblical times where the infamous King Herod foolishly promises his daughter Salomé anything she asks if only she will dance for him. Her gruesome request is the head of the prophet Jokanaan -- the only man unmoved by her beauty -- on a silver platter. It's a tantalizing and poetic exploration of forbidden desires and destructive vanity as well as a fascinating display of Victorian ideas about Eastern culture.
