OSCAR WILDE

Literary Classic Book Collection CD. Author Biography

Oscar Wilde (1854 – 1900)

literary classics, classic book author, literature oscar wilde, picture of dorian grey, william morris, dante gabriel rossetti, bram stoker, pere lachaise, parisOscar Wilde was born in Dublin to a mother who was also a writer, and to a father who wrote between his work as an eye surgeon. Oscar’s education began at home and he later attended Portora Royal School, spending the summers with his family. From school Wilde went on to Trinity College Dublin where he excelled and received a scholarship to Magdalene College, Oxford.

Oscar joined an aesthetic movement, represented by the school of William Morris and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. He was influenced by such authors as John Ruskin, and Oscar Wilde himself taught aesthetics in London in 1879, before touring the US and Canada.

Oscar Wilde met Florence Balcombe, and was heart broken when she announced her engagement to Bram Stoker. He left Ireland to visited London, Paris and the US. In 1884 he married Constance Lloyd and together they had two sons. It was reported that a year after his marriage, Wilde was introduced to homosexuality, although his homosexual feelings had been expressed long before. He was to later be sentenced to two years hard labour for acts of gross indecency.

Oscar Wilde died in November 1900 from cerebral meningitis. He is buried in Pere Lachaise, Paris.
