Summary
"Focusing on the last quarter of the nineteenth century, The Wilde Years features Oscar Wilde as a central, catalytic figure linking two artistic capitals, London and Paris. Wilde is presented as a multi-faceted artist, whose major achievement was language, with which he contributed to the development of artistic and cultural movements of his age. In his lifetime, Wilde was praised as a poet, writer and, in particular, playwright, but this publication throws new light on his lesser known work as an art critic, journalist and progressive thinker."--BOOK JACKET
