SALOME BY OSCAR WILDE
Salome is a story about a biblical princess who received the head of a prophet for her dance. In world culture, Salome symbolizes the femme fatale image. For years since its inception, the play was banned in both England and Russia. The author intentionally created his work in French, hoping that the modern French, as a more liberated and loyal nation, would accept the play favourably. The play lends itself to a very dramatic interpretation which provides an opportunity to think about what art can do when it's driven by evil forces.
