Wilde's works are suffused with his aestheticism, brilliant craftsmanship, legendary wit and, ultimately, his tragic muse. He wrote tender fairy stories for children employing all his grace, artistry and wit, of which the best-known is The Happy Prince. Counterpoints to this were his novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, which shocked and outraged many readers of his day, and his stories for adults which exhibited his fascination with the relations between serene art and decadent life. Wilde took London by storm with his plays, particularly his masterpiece The Importance of Being Earnest. His essays - in particular De Profundis- and his Ballad of Reading Gaol, both written after his release from prison, strikingly break the bounds of his usual expressive range. His other essays and poems are all included in this comprehensive collection of the works of one of the most exciting writers of the late nineteenth century.

Here is Oscar Wilde revealed in his own words--including more than 200 previously unpublished letters--available to coincide with the one hundredth anniversary of his death Deliciously wicked, astoundingly clever, and often outright shocking, Oscar Wilde put his art into his work and his genius into his life. In this collection, replete with newly discovered letters, the full extent of that genius is unveiled. Charting his life from his Irish upbringing to fame in his fin de siècle London to infamy and exile in Paris, the letters--written between 1875 and 1900 to publishers and fans, friends and lovers, enemies and adversaries--resound with Wilde's wit, brilliance, and humanity. Wilde's grandson, Merlin Holland, and Rupert Hart-Davis have produced a provocative and revealing self-portrait. Wilde's reputation as a serious thinker, humorous writer, and gay icon continues to flourish. The Complete Letters is an intimate exploration of his life and thoughts--Wilde in his own words.

Patrick M. Horan presents his own biography of Speranza and Wilde to illustrate that they were, paradoxically, both rebellious and conventional. He terms this contradictory impulse to upset and maintain the status quo "conventional Bohemianism." Horan then explores Speranza's presence in Wilde's literature and stresses that he shared her love of paradox, which he used to explain his contradictory views about nationalism, feminism, love, motherhood, and imprisonment. Horan argues that, even though Wilde longed to be recognized by fashionable London society, he was "self-alienated" because he was hailed as the son of an Irish nationalist poet. He illustrates that feminism was problematic for both mother and son - they were both trailblazing feminists. Nevertheless, Speranza idealized wives as self-sacrificing and submissive, and Wilde idealized female lovers as objects of beauty. Horan asserts that Speranza's love of Irish myth fostered young Wilde's love of fantasy, which is evidenced in his fairy tales and The Picture of Dorian Gray. He concludes that Wilde wrote fantasy, in part, to identify humanity's inhumanity, to acknowledge that love is often unreciprocated, and to affirm the naturalness of homosexuality. He also proposes that Wilde wrote fiction and drama, to present the self-sacrificing nature of motherhood; his mother's characters clearly exhibit Speranza's at once conventional and Bohemian personality. Finally, the author demonstrates that in "De Profundis," Wilde acknowledged Speranza's wise and paradoxical credo that sorrow brings joy.
