Written originally in French in 1892, Wilde's one-act tragedy "Salome" enacts the biblical tale of a wanton woman's erotic dance and the martyrdom of John the Baptist. This volume reprints the complete text of the first English edition (1894) with illustrations by Aubrey Beardsley, plus "A Note on "Salome"" by Robert Ross.
