About the Author
Author Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde (1854–1900) was born in Dublin in 1854. He won scholarships to both Trinity College (Dublin) and Magdalen College (Oxford), where he was heavily influenced by the radical aesthetics of Walter Pater. Flamboyant wit and man-about-town, Wilde had a reputation that preceded him, especially in his early career. After publishing two volumes of short stories between 1887–91, his social-comedy plays such as Lady Windermere’s Fan and The Importance of Being Earnest established his critical and commercial success. In 1895, Wilde was sentenced to two years’ imprisonment for homosexual conduct and died in Paris in obscurity a few years after his release.
