Troppo spesso Oscar Wilde è stato frettolosamente relegato al rango di caustico battutista, distillatore di scintillanti aforismi buoni a tutti gli usi. In realtà, nell’opera wildiana trova espressione in forme fulminanti e paradossali una concezione modernissima dell’arte e della vita, feroce critica ante litteram della “cultura di massa”. Articolato in capitoli tematici e introdotto da un ampio saggio che ricostruisce à rebours il personaggio dello scrittore a partire dal processo che ne segnò la rovina e il fulmineo declino, questo volume insegue fin nelle pieghe del Wilde meno noto le sue intuizioni più spiazzanti, le espressioni più brillanti del suo pensiero, la vena amara che si cela sotto il suo gusto per l’artificio…

Personal recollections from André Gide on a man who profoundly influenced his work—Oscar Wilde. André Gide, a towering figure in French letters, draws upon his friendship with Oscar Wilde to sketch a compelling portrait of the tragic, doomed author, both celebrated and shunned in his time. Rather than compile a complete biography, Gide invites us to discover Wilde as he did—from their first meeting in 1891 to their final parting just two years before Wilde’s death—all told through Gide’s sensitive, incomparable prose. Using his notes, recollections, and conversations, Gide illuminates Wilde as a man whose true art was not writing, but living. This ebook features a new introduction by Jeanine Parisier Plottel, selected quotes, and an image gallery.

When The Picture of Dorian Gray was first published in 1891, it evoked a tremendous amount of hostile criticism, in most part due to its immoral content. Oscar Wilde was identified with the "art for art's sake" movement of the nineteenth century which did not subordinate art to ethical instruction. However, this novel is indeed a morality tale about the hazards of egotistical self-indulgence. "If it were I," exclaims Dorian, "who were always to be young and that picture that was to grow old . . .

In the spring of 1895 the life of Constance Wilde changed irrevocably. Up until the conviction of her husband, Oscar, for homosexual crimes, she had held a privileged position in society. Part of a gilded couple, she was a popular children's author, a fashion icon, and a leading campaigner for women's rights. A founding member of the magical society the Golden Dawn, her pioneering and questioning spirit encouraged her to sample some of the more controversial aspects of her time. Mrs Oscar Wilde was a phenomenon in her own right…
