Listener Opinions

    " This book is pretty dope. With cool gory ink-drawings of the severed head. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sana | 2/11/2014

    " It was overly romanticized. I probably would have enjoyed it more if I was familiar with the biblical tale. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessika Malo | 2/6/2014

    " wow, very rich and well-written. You fall deeply and easily for this book! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel | 2/6/2014

    " This is another play in my book of plays by Oscar Wilde. I didn't really enjoy this one as much as his other works, I can't really put my finger on why I didn't. It just wasn't that appealing to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacy | 2/1/2014

    " What did I just read, even? But ah well, probably another play that would've been wonderful to see live. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ben | 1/15/2014

    " Interesting take. I don't know that the play adds anything that valuable to the original gospel account. Well-written. I can appreciate the skill of the writer, but the play was a little boring for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaclyn | 8/11/2013

    " Intriguing one-act play regarding John the Baptist's beheading. Slightly strange and a little disconcerting, but also quite thought-provoking. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tadeja | 10/22/2011

    " I had to read this for school and it was actually the first book for school that I liked. It was quite an interesting story :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carina | 5/17/2011

    " What the fuck did I just read? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mjm | 5/3/2011

    " Inarguably one of my perennially favorite plays. Five stars for vison, compulsion, the perfection of aesthetic, the religion of the theater, and sheer lyricism. One of the few poetic dramas in English since Shakespeare's time worth a damn aside from Yeats. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine | 3/16/2011

    " As beautifully dark as I remember it... Maybe someday I will get around to reading it in French. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darren Angle | 2/21/2009

    " Salome presents the underpinnings of every act of violence and love, and is the truest iteration of the aesthetics of their blurring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hana6 | 8/23/2008

    " You can not have everything you want unless your wish is pure and based on your emotions and hard work. The shallownes can only bring unhappiness and destruction of ones own person. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Grace | 6/23/2008

    " I thought this was a little depressing, unlike some of Wilde's funnier, lighter work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erica Lyn | 4/30/2008

    " I spent a month obsessed with this play. I read both the French and English but prefer the French as that's the language in which it was written but do an excellent ghetto reinterpretation of Salome trying to seduce ole John. Well worth the half hour it will take to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nic | 3/2/2008

    " Pretty, but weird. Which I guess I knew, since I saw it once. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christina Bouwens | 12/15/2007

    " dark, satirical "Biblical" play. Love Wilde's cynical, trademark witticism rounding out the grand finale with Salome, Herod, and Herodias! If all 19th Century drama were like this, I'd be enjoying vast loads more of it ;-) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 James | 3/23/2006

    " A few bright spots, but pretty flat. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John Donovan | 8/19/2005

    " Rich and indulgent with language and imagery, expressing the depths of one's depravity and decadence, Wilde's play is a florid and poignant exploration of gender reversal. "
