Customer Review

on 25 February 2001
Although Oscar Wilde never wrote an autobiography, you will be able to see his life through his own eyes;his thoughts and feelings,his wit,his sense of humour and last but not least his real character as it was presented to his friends. The only "negative" thing is,at least according to me,that Oscar resented the fact that his private letters were published especially those addressed to Bosie.So you can't help reading them without feeling a sense of guilt but put the blame on his grandson,Merlin Holland! Anyway, this is a book that you will enjoy very much not only as a kind of autobiography but also as a wonderful work of art,as the words Oscar writes to Bosie could be envied even by Shakespeare;"O, may I live to touch your hair and your hands...love me always,love me always",he writes to him from his cell.Read this book and you will get to know your favourite writer from the time he was a student(1868),to the time he died in Paris (1900).Enjoy it!
