Oscar Wilde

 

1854–1900, Irish author and wit, b. Dublin. He is most famous for his sophisticated, brilliantly witty plays, which were the first since the comedies of Sheridan and Goldsmith to have both dramatic and literary merit. Influenced by the aesthetic teachings of Walter Pater and John Ruskin, Wilde became the center of a group glorifying beauty for itself alone, and he was satirized with other exponents of “art for art’s sake” in Punch and in Gilbert and Sullivan’s operetta Patience. His first published work, Poems (1881), was well received.—continue at Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. Copyright © 2002 Columbia University Press.

Quatations

 1    Yet each man kills the thing he loves,
  By each let this be heard,
Some do it with a bitter look,
  Some with a flattering word,
The coward does it with a kiss,
  The brave man with a sword.           The Ballad of Reading Gaol.

2    All that we know who lie in gaol
  Is that the wall is strong;
And that each day is like a year,
  A year whose days are long.           The Ballad of Reading Gaol.

 

3    The vilest deeds like poison-weeds
  Bloom well in prison-air:
It is only what is good in Man
  That wastes and withers there:
Pale Anguish keeps the heavy gate
  And the Warder is Despair.           The Ballad of Reading Gaol.

4      The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it.           The Picture of Dorian Gray.

5      He knew the precise psychological moment when to say nothing.           The Picture of Dorian Gray.

6      As long as war is regarded as wicked it will always have its fascinations. When it is looked upon as vulgar, it will cease to be popular.           The Critic as Artist.

7      Where there is sorrow there is holy ground.           De Profundis.

8      It is through Art and through Art only that we can realize our perfection; through Art and Art only that we can shield ourselves from the sordid perils of actual existence.           Art.
