Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde (16 October 1854 – 30 November 1900) was an Irish playwright, novelist, essayist, and poet. After writing in different forms throughout the 1880s, he became one of London's most popular playwrights in the early 1890s. He is remembered for his epigrams, his novel The Picture of Dorian Gray, his plays, as well as the circumstances of his imprisonment and early death. Wilde's parents were successful Anglo-Irish Dublin intellectuals. Their son became fluent in French and German early in life. At university, Wilde read Greats; he proved himself to be an outstanding classicist, first at Dublin, then at Oxford. He became known for his involvement in the rising philosophy of aestheticism, led by two of his tutors, Walter Pater and John Ruskin. After university, Wilde moved to London into fashionable cultural and social circles.From the Inside Flap:
'This edition does full justice to Wilde’s harrowing masterpiece with outstanding illustrations by Peter Hay.
‘I have seldom seen the Ballad illustrated with more simple power and by someone who hasn’t just read it, but obviously knows a good deal about Wilde’s life in prison and has felt his way under Oscar’s skin for the duration of that terrible experience’
