Oscar Wilde ; selected with an introduction by Matthew Sturgis.
Main Creator: Wilde, Oscar, author.
Contributors: Sturgis, Matthew.
Summary:In researching Oscar Wilde, compiler Matthew Sturgis found, in every major archive, sheets of foolscap in Wilde's distinctive handwriting, setting down a series of unfamiliar epigrams and unpublished try-outs. He uncovered dozens of unfamiliar and previously ungathered anecdotes about Wilde: sidelights on his days in Oxford, London, America and Paris and beyond, by society hostesses, men-about-town, actors, lawyers, minor literateurs, artists and politicians, diligently setting down his actions, his mannerisms and above all his sayings. The items in this volume are all small additions to the Wilde story: some unfamiliar, others unexpected, they enrich and alter the picture of his life.
