Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I found this useful: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1899_in_... . Not voting for Heart of Darkness, though!


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Hmmm. "Uncle Vanya" did premier in 1899, but it was actually first published two years before, in 1897 ...


message 3: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl I suspect people weren't adding The Importance of Being Earnest because they thought it was published in 1895. That was the first performance date, but the first date of publication was 1899. So I've added it.
