Extractions: Chi segua dal di presso la vita e la favella degli uomini, sia nello stanzone dei soldati, che nei grandi uffici commerciali, esiterà a credere che tutti coloro che scagliarono pietre contro il Wilde furono essi stessi senza macchia. Difatti ognuno si sente diffidente nel parlare con altri di questo argomento, temendo che forse il suo interlocutore ne sappia più di lui. L'autodifesa di Oscar Wilde nello "Scots Observer" deve ritenersi valida dinanzi alla sbarra della critica spassionata. Ognuno, scrisse, vede il proprio peccato in Dorian Gray (il più celebre romanzo di Wilde). Quale fu il peccato di Dorian Gray nessun lo dice e nessun lo sa. Chi lo scopre l'ha commesso. Nell'ultimo suo libro "De Profundis", si inchina davanti ad un Cristo gnostico, risorto dalle pagine apocrife della "Casa dei melograni" ed allora la sua vera anima, tremula, timida e rattristata, traluce attraverso il manto di Eliogabalo. La sua leggenda fantastica, l'opera sua, una variazione polifonica sui rapporti fra l'arte e la natura anziché una rivelazione della sua psiche, i libri dorati, scintillanti di quelle frasi epigrammatiche che lo resero, agli occhi di alcuno, il più arguto parlatore del secolo scorso, sono ormai un bottino diviso.

Extractions: Leslie Flint at a seance On 20th August 1962 a voice manifested in the seance-room of British medium Leslie Flint (see photo) which claimed to be that of the late Oscar Wilde The famous Irish poet and dramatist died in Paris in 1900. By that time he had fallen in disgrace by the prudish society. Once he was acclaimed as an artist of brilliant wit and exuberant fancy. As a dramatist his work was distinguished chiefly for brilliant epigrams. His plays included "The importance of being Earnest". He was the author of "The Picture of Dorian Gray". His life has been portrayed splendidly by actor Stephen Fry in the film 'Wilde' recently. Oscar Wilde Oscar Wilde came through in the same facetious and sarcastic manner for which he was known whilst on Earth. At first it was not clear who was talking. When Mrs. Greene asked for his name the voice answered:

Extractions: An almighty fox up The unspeakable in full pursuit of the uneatable - Oscar Wilde's quote about fox-hunting and a pretty good description of rebel Labour MPs turning on their leader. The House Of Commons last night voted for a total ban on hunting with hounds in what was technically a free vote but which all the papers see as a blow for the Prime Minister. Tony Blair had (typically) wanted a compromise motion that would have allowed hunting to continue only in certain areas and under tight conditions. No doubt, a regulator called Offox would have been set up to police the remaining hunts. But all that became unnecessary as the Guardian reports on what it calls a "humiliating rebuff" for Blair as more than 300 Labour MPs, including seven Cabinet ministers, defied Downing Street to vote for an outright ban.

Extractions: Französischer Schriftsteller, geboren und gestorben in Paris. Bekannt wurde er durch Romane, Theaterstücke und autobiographische Werke, die durch ihre gründliche Analyse individueller Selbstbestimmung und das für Gide typische bedingungslose Eintreten für Freiheit und Würde des Menschen bestechen. Zusammen mit seinen kritischen Werken hatten sie einen tief greifenden Einfluss auf die französische Literatur und Philosophie der Moderne. Gide wurde am 22. November 1869 in Paris in eine streng protestantische Familie geboren und studierte an der École Alsacienne und am Lycée Henri IV. In seinem ersten Buch Les Cahiers d'André Walter (1891, Die Aufzeichnungen und Gedichte des André Walter) beschrieb er den religiösen und romantischen Idealismus eines unglücklichen jungen Mannes. Gides frühe Werke zeugen von seiner Nähe zu den Symbolisten, doch bereits 1894 entwickelte er eine eigene individualistische Sichtweise, die sich auch in seinem Stil ausdrückte. Beeinflusst u. a. von Pascal und Nietzsche predigte er in dem Roman Les nourritures terrestres (1897, Uns nährt die Erde) die Lehre des aktiven Hedonismus. Später widmete er sich in seinen Werken der Untersuchung der persönlichen Freiheit und Selbstverantwortung, die er aus verschiedenen Blickwinkeln darstellte.

Extractions: HOME AUTHOR INDEX TITLE INDEX CATEGORY INDEX ... LINKS Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde (1854-1900) Irish poet and dramatist whose reputation rests on his comic masterpieces Lady Wintermere's Fan and The Importance of Being Earnest . Among Wilde's other best-known works are his only novel The Picture of Dorian Gray , which deals very similar theme as Robert Luis Stevenson's Doctor Jekyll and Mister Hyde . Wilde's fairy tales are very popular - the motifs have been compared to those of Hans Christian Andersen. "When they entered they found, hanging upon the wall, a splendid portrait of their master as they had last seen him, in all the wonder of his exquisite youth and beauty. Lying on the floor was a dead man, in evening dress, with a knife in his heart. He was withered, wrinkled, and loathsome of visage. It was not till they had examined the rings that they recognized who it was." (from The Picture of Dorian Gray Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde was born in Dublin to unconventional parents. His mother, Lady Jane Francesca Wilde (1820-96), was a poet and journalist. Her pen name was Sperenza. According to a story she warded off creditors by reciting Aeschylus. Wilde's father was Sir William Wilde, an Irish antiquarian, gifted writer, and specialist in diseases of the eye and ear, who founded a hospital in Dublin a year before Oscar was born. His work gained for him the honorary appointment of Surgeon Oculist in Ordinary to the Queen. Lady Wilde, who was active in the women's rights movement, was reputed to ignore her husbands amorous adventures.
Extractions: of the Trials of Oscar Wilde One hundred years ago, in the London of the elderly Queen Victoria, an event occurred which put on center stage questions of sex and morality. Starring in this drama was Oscar Wilde, novelist, poet, playwright, aesthete, reputed homosexual, enigma. The trials of Oscar Wilde offered the court of public opinion its first opportunity to debate the ethics of homosexuality; unfortunately for Wilde, his trials offered the nation's legal system the same opportunity. Convicted of practicing "indecent acts," the notorious writer spent the next two years kept to hard labor in prison, dying barely two and a half years after his release. Wilde's was a notoriety dependent on its elusiveness. Constantly challenging bourgeois Victorian notions of identity, he was the period's central chameleon-like figure, adaptively blending into his environment, but always commenting on the nature of that environment in the course of the performance. Wilde's was a life dedicated to art. He lived through art and treated life as an aesthetic, operating, perhaps perversely, through constant, self-conscious confounding of categories of meaning. When the verdict of guilty was returned for Oscar Wilde, it represented the violent reassertion of convention in response to the threats posed by his life and art. To commemorate the centenary of the Wilde trials, this exhibition and catalogue of essays return to the many sites of disruption visited by, profoundly changed by, Oscar Wilde. Drawing on the extensive holdings of first editions, autograph letters, photographs, periodicals, and ephemera from the Fales Collection of English and American Fiction, graduate students in the Victorian Studies Group at New York University trace the powerful impact of Oscar Wilde in the aesthetic, political, spiritual, and moral circles of late-Victorian England. The books and manuscripts analyzed, interpreted, and displayed are the textual fossil remains of the culture of Oscar Wilde's transgressions and containmentthe footsteps of the chameleon.
