Oscar Wilde declared to Andre Gide that "I have put my genius into my life; all I have put into my works is my talents". He was a virtuosic conversationalist and today we associate his witticisms, epigrams and sharp repartee with Wilde the man as much as Wilde the dramatist, for it is here in particular that he is seen lampooning the starchy morality of Victorian society. This new selection is drawn from Wilde's stories, novels, plays, lectures, reviews and letters and provides an invaluable introduction and reference to Wilde the artist and the man. The full extent of his wit is on display here, together with serious, reflective and often melancholy side to his character so eloquently expressed in De Profundis and The Ballad of Reading Gaol.
