Oscar Wilde – Up Close. – a lecture by Giles Ramsay

“I put all my genius into my life; I put only my talent into my works.” This lecture examines the public and private life of one of the world’s most original and controversial artists. Born into a moderately respectable Dublin family Oscar Wilde recreated himself as an international celebrity and wrote a series of short stories and plays that charmed the world. In 1890 he also published the last of the great myths – The Picture of Dorian Gray. Ten years later Wilde, devoured by his fame, his demons and his decadence, would be dead.
