About this title


Oscar Wilde in America Better known in 1882 as a cultural icon than a serious writer, the author was brought to North America for a major lecture tour on Aestheticism and the decorative arts. This volume cites all ninety-one of his interviews and contains transcripts of forty-eight of them, and it also includes his lecture on his travels in America. Full description


"Wilde was a source of fascination and provocation, and these assembled portraits reveal the rawness and the refinements, the pride and the anxieties, of American culture in the making during this important period. A vital and valuable book." --Eric Haralson, editor of Reading the Middle Generation Anew: Culture, Community, and Form in Twentieth-Century American Poetry
