Today we celebrate the work of Oscar Wilde for no other reason than “Why not?”. Monday’s are never easy, but Oscar Wilde makes it better.
Wilde was a poet, playwright, and novelist from Ireland. He was a bit of a rock-star in his day, and honestly, he’s still a bit of one.
If you’d like to read his poem from which the image is taken from, click here: “4. To Milton”.
Here’s an interesting feature on Wilde and his life in The New Yorker: “Deceptive Picture: How Oscar Wilde painted over ‘Dorian Grey’“.
And to go along with that last one, University of Missouri-Kansas City has a whole site dedicated famous trials, inlcuding Wilde’s infamous trial. They have transcripts and letters written about the trial by Wilde. Check it out: “The Trials of Oscar Wilde: 1895”.
Until tomorrow, keep reading.
