Initially started as a review of Oscar Wilde’s Vera, this introduction-turned-post summarizes my first impressions of Wilde’s work as I discuss The Importance of Being Earnest – my first Wilde read.
Having “boycotted” reading anything by Oscar Wilde, I have just bought three volumes that contain virtually all of his work – except for The Picture of Dorian Gray and De Profundis – to discover and explore his writing. My curiosity about Wilde and testing my established position about his work had been increasing, and I found the books at a bargain price, which prompted me to get them all, after having watched a documentary that really sparked my interest. To learn why I haven’t been wanting to read Wilde and watch the documentary, check out this post.
