    DescriptionOne hundred years ago, in the London of the elderly Queen Victoria, 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. Oscar Wilde-Novelist, poet, playwright, aesthete, reputed homosexual, enigma-was tried and convicted of practicing indecent acts and sentenced to two years of hard labor, dying less than three years after his release. Reading Wilde commemorates the centenary of the Wilde trials by returning to the many sites visited, and profoundly changed, by Oscar Wilde. The essays trace his powerful impact in the aesthetic, political, spiritual, and moral circles if late Victorian England.

    Review quote
    "Austism and the Myth of the Person Alone is one of those rare professional books that causes one to pause and consider what it tells us about our literature, our field, and, perhaps, ourselves...Biklen has given us a fascinating, thoughtful and, most important, essential book by including insights, experiences, and perspectives of individuals with autism to add to the canon."-"American Association on Mental Retardation",
