Anglo Irish Author Oscar ...

<— Prev    |    Next —>

The author of the attached reminiscence, Gilbert Coleridge, endeavored to create an honest character study of Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900) in hopes to better understand the man in the context of his time. One of the interesting hypothetical questions he poses asked how would Oscar Wilde (a man who lived only for pleasure) have got on during the highly rationed home front of 1914-1918 war?

"He was an arresting figure in person, of commanding height, with a clean-shaved oval face. The latter was marred by a weak mouth, from which poured, with fascinating languor sometimes, torrents of paradox, quaint wit, perverse and startling epigrams, all spoken in a tone which left the listener wondering whether the speaker was really in earnest, or only talking for effect."
