Vera, or The Nihilists

by Oscar Wilde

Vera is the first play written by Oscar Wilde. It is a melodramatic tragedy set in Russia and is loosely based on the life of Vera Zasulich who plots to kill the country’s tyrannical Czar, in league with the Nihilists.

A nihilist is a "strange martyr who has no faith, who goes to the stake without enthusiasm, and dies for what he does not believe in […] a purely literary product. He was invented by [Turgenev, in Fathers and Sons (1861)] and completed by Dostoyevsky."
