About the Author
Dublin-born Oscar Wilde (1854–1900) is known for his satirical comedies of manners. He received honors at Trinity College and Oxford and managed an English magazine before publishing poetry, short stories, plays, and essays. His only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, was published in 1891. Banned, censored, and excoriated in the press, the novel’s flirtation with aestheticism was considered dangerous, decadent, and immoral—accusations that would haunt Wilde in his personal life as well.
In 1892, Wilde’s first play, Lady Windermere’s Fan, opened to widespread acclaim; it was followed by A Woman of No Importance, Salome, An Ideal Husband, and The Importance of Being Earnest. The influence of Oscar Wilde—one of the most celebrated, controversial, and unconventional writers of the nineteenth century—is felt to this day.

"All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That's his."
Jack - "I'll bet you anything that half an hour after they have met, they will be calling each other sister."
Algeron - "Women only do that when they've called each other a lot of other things first."
"To speak frankly, I am not in favor of long engagements. They give people the opportunity of finding out each other's character before marriage, which I think is never advisable."
