Summary
Oscar Wilde: A Literary Life tracks the intellectual biography of one of the most influential minds of the nineteenth century. Rather than focusing on the dramatic events of Wildes life, this volume documents Wildes impressive forays into education, religion, science, philosophy, and social reform. In so doing, it provides an accessible and yet detailed account that reflects Wildes own commitment to the contemplative life. Suitable for seasoned readers as well as those new to the study of his work, Oscar Wilde: A Literary Life brings Wildes intellectual investments into sharp focus, while placing him within a cultural landscape that was always evolving and often fraught with contradiction.
