Overview
-

This entertaining illustrated biography covers all aspects of Wilde's life and work. Oscar Wilde was one of Ireland's finest and most prolific 19th-century writers. He is best remembered for his epigrams and plays, the novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, the circumstances of his imprisonment at the height of his fame, and his tragic early death. "The Pocket Biography Of Oscar Wilde does exactly what it sets out to do: puts flags where he starts out and follows his progress in a clearly written, thoroughly evocative manner, giving the general reader a welcome introduction to one of the wittiest - and kindest - men of that austere Victorian age.... Potter has done a terrific job in editing and illustrating Wilde's progress, the details of which leap to life in a series of illuminating portraits and photographs."--Irish Voice
