Описание: Of all nineteenth-century letter writers Oscar Wilde is, predictably, one of the most sparkling. He knew and corresponded with many leading political, literary and artistic figures of the time including William Gladstone, George Curzon, W. B. Yeats, George Bernard Shaw, Frank Harris, Aubrey Beardsley, Max Beerbohm, John Ruskin, William Rothenstein and James Whistler.
This edition to mark the centenary of his death, and the most complete ever to appear, contains over 1,500 of his letters and anyone unfamiliar with Wilde as a correspondent will find it packed with unexpected delights. For one thing his letters show that the perception of Wilde as the lightweight author of society comedies, a few memorable poems and some fairy stories must finally make room for Wilde as a hard-working professional writer, deeply interested by the issues of his day and carrying in his intellectual baggage, something that we all too frequently overlook, a quite extraordinary classical and philosophical education. Wonderfully fluent in style, when read aloud they must be the nearest we shall ever come to hearing his legendary conversation and they bear that most familiar of Wildean hallmarks - the lightest of touches for even the most serious of subjects.
Despite the odd purple passage and the occasional glance at posterity, Wildes letters show him at his informal best. They comment openly on his life and his work from the early years of undergraduate friendships, through his year-long lecture tour in America as a striving and ambitious young Professor of Aesthetics, to the short period of fame and success in the early 1890s followed by his disgrace and imprisonment. The last and most poignant section covers the five long years between his downfall and his premature death in exile at forty-six. Even in adversity his humour does not desert him and he is able to share with his readers that greatest of gifts - the ability to smile at ones own misfortune.
