Item description for Wilde (Life & Times Series) (Life&Times) by Jonathan Fryer...
Oscar Wilde, self-styled master of the bon mot turned Victorian bogeyman, was resurrected by a more liberal age as St. Oscar, slayer of the dragons of pomposity, hypocrisy and cant. The big Irishman with the golden tongue has posthumously proved that the world is not black and white. His wit and his paradoxes are understood as profound and moral; his best plays are recognized as gems of English comedy. As unrepentant Wildean Jonathan Fryer shows. Wilde had a genius for extremes. Only the mediocre and the tedious were excluded.
