Meet the Author

The ever-quotable Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) was an Irish playwright, novelist, essayist, and poet who delighted Victorian England with his legendary wit. He found critical and popular success with his scintillating plays, chiefly The Importance of Being Earnest, while his only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, scandalized readers. Imprisoned for two years for homosexual behavior, Wilde moved to France after his release, where he died destitute.

Truly a stimulating read...It definately pushing the mental envelope of concepts. Nearly redefines the way one percieves ego and reputation, as well as morality and writeness. Each character seems to be an embodiment of a different facet of ones ego.
