Reviews

"[Salamensky's] insights, couched in stylish prose and backed up by deep scholarship, merit a place in Wilde studies. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty." - CHOICE

"Truly groundbreaking This is not only an extremely incisive example of historical/cultural scholarship - impacting performance studies, literary criticism, popular culture studies, and literary/cultural history - it also gives us the first extended work on Oscar Wilde through the lens of Jewish Studies. Salamensky opens many doors here - and proceeds to go through them with depth, insight, and synthesis." - Frederick S. Roden, associate professor of English, University of Connecticut
