More About the Author

Oscar Fingall O'Flahertie Wills Wilde was born in Dublin in 1854. He was educated at Trinity College, Dublin and Magdalen College, Oxford where, a disciple of Pater, he founded an aesthetic cult. In 1884 he married Constance Lloyd, and his two sons were born in 1885 and 1886.
His novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray (1891), and social comedies Lady Windermere's Fan (1892), A Woman of No Importance (1893), An Ideal Husband (1895), and The Importance of Being Earnest (1895), established his reputation. In 1895, following his libel action against the Marquess of Queesberry, Wilde was sentenced to two years' imprisonment for homosexual conduct, as a result of which he wrote The Ballad of Reading Gaol (1898), and his confessional letter De Profundis (1905). On his release from prison in 1897 he lived in obscurity in Europe, and died in Paris in 1900.

I loved this cannily illustrated book from the start. Unfortunately though because I bought it for my son (an Oscar Wilde fan with a cat in his digs) I am not able to pick it up when I need a laugh. Simon Drew has a great sense of humour and is a master of illustration.

It is a pleasure for the eyes and for the mind. I would recommend it for a gift either for adults or children.

It's Hard to Make Oscar Wilde Look Bad 23 July 2013
By C G Correll - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I may be just me, but I didn't find the drawings to be amusing (and I usually love anything with animals included), the quotations were not Wilde's best by far, and the whole endeavor was just plain disappointing.
