Description

Review 1:
Definitely not what I had expected.

Review 2:
Anyone who is a fan of Oscar Wilde will appreciate this book tremendously. It is intelligently and elegantly organized. It captures the mind, heart, and soul of a completely unique human being who left his mark in the world as well as on the stage.

Many of the quotations are now a part of everyday humor, and the book brings to life many more that even a fan of Wilde may have overlooked.

The cover is very lovely visually, and sets the tone for what is inside.

Ms. Conrad has obviously done extensive research, and the book comes across as a labor of love. She has done a very scholarly piece of work, as well as a work that is very entertaining. Well done!

Review 3:
This book of Oscar Wilde is long overdue; it is an absolute essential for the collector of Wilde. It is extremely well organized by topic which make it easy to find a particular quotation or one can just peruse for the pure pleasure of enjoying Oscar's wit and unique turn of a phrase. I've found shorter books of quotations, but this is the most complete and best yet. It's found a permanent home on my coffee table.

Review 4:
What a great comprehensive guide, read and insight for all Oscar Wilde fans. (And if you're not one yet, you will be after reading this book.) If you've ever wanted to know everything he's said (lectures) or written (writings and personal correspondence), there's finally a book that fills this need- 3,100 quotes! (It's also now the largest collection of Oscar Wilde's quotes published to date.) It's fascinating to read quotes gleaned from Oscar Wilde's personal correspondence, which is something not easily found. Every single quote has been referenced so that you know exactly where each came from (especially if you want to look it up yourself). It's organized by sixty-seven different topics, so you can look up what he had to say on just about anything. A few examples are: "Vanity and Humility", "Politics, Government and Law", "Vice and Virtue", "Intelligence and Ignorance"- even a chapter devoted to what he said about himself in "About Oscar, by Oscar"! This is a terrific compilation, so interesting and fun to read. It's amazing how relevant it is for today- this is one of the great things about Oscar Wilde, his ability to capture all the facets of humanity with such timeless truths. I highly recommend this book.
