Overview

Non è colpa mia se l'odore di cenere, d'erbe macerate e d'immondizie aleggia sulle mie novelle. Io credo seriamente che Lei ritarderà il corso della civiltà in Irlanda, se impedirà agli irlandesi di contemplare per bene se stessi nel mio specchio tirato a lucido... scriveva Joyce nel 1906 all'editore inglese che lo pressava affinché modificasse quelle parti di Gente di Dublino che venivano ritenute scandalose e offensive. Trascorsero ancora nove anni. Poi l'editore si convinse a pubblicare integralmente i quindici racconti.

About 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.
