Overview

Wit, dandy, literary anarchist, self-publicist, and homosexual martyr, Oscar Wilde achieved fame and notoriety at a time when mass culture and communication promoted the 'new' in every area of British life. This edition, part of Oxford's new Authors in Context series, examines the rich interplay between Wilde's society and his writings and shows the remarkable recontextualizing of Wilde and his work in film, stage, and the media in the century following his death.
