Description

When the prophet Jokanaan is brought to the attention of the princess Salome, he rebukes her interest, which causes her to make a brutal declaration.Oscar Wilde's one-act tragedy explores the repercussions of her horrifying decision.

Originally composed in French in 1892, Salomé is a controversial tale full of cruelty and retribution. Wilde expands on the Biblical story of John the Baptist, whom was captured and beheaded by Herod Antipas. It explores the interaction between the characters showing Salomé’s spiteful nature and Herod’s growing concern. It’s a bold adaptation of a somber tale that leaves a mark on all who read it.

Salomé’s one-act story structure immediately dives into the strange dynamic amongst Herod and his family. Once Salomé’s bloodlust is apparent Herod’s forced to reconcile both of their futures. It’s a haunting drama that’s amplified by its Biblical setting and notable characters.

With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Salomé is both modern and readable.
