One of literature’s most witty and outspoken personalities, Oscar Wilde captivated late Victorian society. In this perceptive appraisal of Wilde and those around him – including Aubrey Beardsley, Max Beerbohm, Lillie Langtree and George Bernard Shaw – Simon Callow captures the spirit of one of Ireland’s most fêted, and ultimately tragic, literary lions. Rich in anecdote and incident, the book evokes the glamorous, decadent world of fin de siècle London.
