Wilde the Irishman

Cover

Yale University Press, 1998 - 205 Seiten
For nearly a century, Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) has been seen primarily as a British writer - a description that ignores his Irish parentage and the experience of the first 20 years of his life. In this study, 17 leading Irish artists, critics and cultural commentators explore the theme of Wilde's Irishness. Viewing Wilde from a range of angles, the contributors assess what difference it makes to perceive him as Irish, or Anglo-Irish, rather than as a British writer.
