Publisher Description

¿Es realmente la Quiromancia una ciencia? ¿ Hay que creerse sus predicciones, o son solo paparruchas…?

Si en medio de una reunión se le acerca alguien y le dice que le va a leer la mano, ¿qué haría usted?

¿le seguiría el juego, ahora que es el centro de atención de la reunión?,

o por el contrario, ¿ni siquiera le tendería la mano, por si acaso?

Mucho nos reímos de las llamadas pseudociencias, pero al predecirnos el futuro nos dijeran que nos esperaba algo terrible, ¿qué haríamos? ¿No haer caso? ¿O bien obsesionarnos de tal modo, que acabaría cambiando nuestra vida? Escuchen nuestro relato y opinen. Podrán ver cómo actuaba el poder de la superstición, según Wilde, sobre la aristocracia victoriana.

About the Author

Oscar Wilde (1854–1900) was born in Dublin. He won scholarships to both Trinity College, Dublin, and Magdalen College, Oxford. In 1875, he began publishing poetry in literary magazines, and in 1878, he won the coveted Newdigate Prize for English poetry. He had a reputation as a flamboyant wit and man-about-town. After his marriage to Constance Lloyd in 1884, he tried to establish himself as a writer, but with little initial success. However, his three volumes of short fiction, The Happy Prince, Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime, and A House of Pomegranates, together with his only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, gradually won him a reputation as a modern writer with an original talent. That reputation was confirmed and enhanced by the phenomenal success of his society comedies: Lady Windermere’s Fan, A Woman of No Importance, An Ideal Husband, and The Importance of Being Earnest, all performed on London’s West End stage between 1892 and 1895. In 1895, he was convicted of engaging in homosexual acts, which were then illegal, and sentenced to two years imprisonment with hard labor. He soon declared bankruptcy, and his property was auctioned off. In 1896, he lost legal custody of his children. When his mother died that same year, his wife Constance visited him at the jail to bring him the news. It was the last time they saw each other. In the years after his release, his health deteriorated. In November 1900, he died in Paris at the age of forty-six.
