Summary
"In The Complete Letters of Oscar Wilde, replete with newly discovered correspondence, the full extent of that genius is unveiled. Charting his life from his Irish upbringing to his fame in fin de siecle London to infamy and exile in Paris, these letters - written between 1875 and 1900 - reveal Wilde's wit, brilliance, and humanity. With letters to publishers and fans, friends and lovers, enemies and adversaries, this complete collection also includes editorial insights by Wilde's sole grandson, Merlin Holland, and the renowned Wilde scholar Rupert Hart-Davis." "An indispensable book for all lovers of Oscar Wilde, The Complete Letters of Oscar Wilde reveals his passion, his fears, his lies, his barbs, and, above all, the glory of his imagination."--Jacket
