Biography of the author
Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde (16 October 1854 – 30 November 1900) was an Irish poet and playwright. After writing in different forms throughout the 1880s, he became one of the most popular playwrights in London in the early 1890s. He is best remembered for his epigrams and plays. Some of his best-known works are his novel The Picture of Dorian Gray and his play The Importance of Being Earnest. The circumstances of his criminal conviction for gross indecency for consensual homosexual acts in one of the first celebrity trials, led to his imprisonment and early death from meningitis at age 46.
