Full description for Oscar Wilde's Wit and Wisdom
Widely acknowledged as the most brilliant talker of his age, Oscar Wilde once explained to Andre Gide, "I put all my genius into my life; I put only my talent into my works." This fine collection of nearly 400 quotes, organized by category, contains quotations from both his works and his conversation, including gems from his personal life with which even devotees may be unfamiliar. The result is a splendid introduction to Wilde's mind and personality, embodied in a feast of the English language's most brilliant and perceptive witticisms.
