About this deal

Suddenly I found myself face to face with the young man whose personality had so strangely stirred me. It changed me from the moment that I read it, and I'm not even being dramatic, but the complex themes of morality and psychology in regard to human nature, combined with Wilde's exemplary writing, couldn't help but change something in my brain chemistry. With this beautiful Collectible Edition, you can enjoy Wilde’s enduring literary legacy again and again.

First, 'De Profundis', his letter to his lover, is an insightful take upon his fate - the pain of a man looked upon, ruined and humiliated, who nevertheless has the unforgiving lucidity to don't spare himself for his mistakes.Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde was an Irish playwright, poet, and author of numerous short stories, and one novel. The rare erotic novel ‘Teleny’ attributed to Wilde, but now classed as apocryphal –judge for yourself – did Wilde have a hand in writing this rare text?

Illustrated with many fascinating photographs, the book includes introductions to each section by Merlin Holland (Oscar’s grandson), Owen Dudley Edwards, Declan Kiberd and Terence Brown. The Decay Of Lying" is an essay (presented as a dialogue) and, honestly, I'll probably need to give it another read and dissect it at my leisure at a later date because I was mostly in the wrong head-space when I read it.He is a journalist and the author of 'The Wilde Album' and 'Irish Peacock and Scarlet' both also published by Fourth Estate. Don’t take away from me the one person who gives to my art whatever charm it possesses: my life as an artist depends on him.

Laughter is not at all a bad beginning for a friendship, and it is far the best ending for one, said the young lord, plucking another daisy.Wilde took London by storm with his plays, particularly his masterpiece The Importance of Being Earnest. Parker has brought out the drinks, and if you stay any longer in this glare, you will be quite spoiled, and Basil will never paint you again. It is quite finished, he cried at last, and stooping down he wrote his name in long vermilion letters on the left-hand corner of the canvas.
