Picture Quotes OF OSCAR WILDE, HE WAS AN IRISH WRITER IN VICTORIAN BRITAIN

 

Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde lived from October 16, 1854 to November 30, 1900. He was an Irish poet, writer, playwright and critic. He became one of the best known and most controversial writers in Victorian Britain.

The best to remember are his epigrams and plays, his novel Das Bild von Dorian Gray and the circumstances of his criminal conviction, detention and early death at the age of 46.

Wilde's parents were Anglo-Irish intellectuals in Dublin. A young, wild man was fluent in French and German. He studied in Dublin and Oxford until he finally settled in London. During his studies, he was associated with the emerging philosophy of aesthetics, which was led by two of his teachers named Walter Pater and John Ruskin.

Wilde became one of the most successful playwrights in late Victorian London in the early 1890s. His last work was The Ballad of Reading Gaol (1898), a long poem that was shaped by the difficult times in prison.
