About Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde is one of the most iconic figures in literary history. He was an Irish poet, playwright, novelist, and essayist whose skillful use of wit and biting satire earned him a place in the annals of English literature. Born into an affluent family in Dublin on October 16th 1854, his parents’ Victorian values clashed with his own non-conformist views as he grew older.

Wilde’s first book “Poems” was published when he was just 24 years old; it sealed his reputation as a young talent to watch. Soon after came plays like “The Importance of Being Earnest” and novels such as “The Picture of Dorian Gray” which explored themes such as artistry versus morality.
