Über den Autor

Oscar Wilde, born Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde on October 16, 1854, in Dublin, Ireland, is celebrated as one of the most eloquent and daring writers of the late 19th century. Educated at Trinity College, Dublin, and Magdalen College, Oxford, Wilde distinguished himself not only through academic excellence but also through his wit and flamboyant aestheticism. A renowned poet, playwright, and novelist, he navigated through different literary genres with unique brilliance and satire. His opus includes the novel 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' and plays such as 'The Importance of Being Earnest' and 'An Ideal Husband', revealing social pretensions through his sharp dialogue and clever plot constructions. His witty epigrams have become part of the English lexicon. Wilde's lesser-known foray into journalism is chronicled in 'The Journalism of Oscar Wilde', which includes his essays and articles showcasing his varied interests and the breadth of his intellect. Despite his literary achievements, Wilde's career was marred by scandal following his imprisonment for 'gross indecency'. Nevertheless, his works have outlived the controversy, cementing his place in the literary canon. Wilde's writing style was characterized by its flamboyance, sharp wit, and a satirical tackling of societal norms, which continues to influence writers and thinkers today. Wilde passed away destitute in Paris on November 30, 1900, but left behind a legacy that immortalized him as a central figure in the annals of English literature.
