have to read the entirety of this massive review I m about to compile.I don t even know where to begin I simply can t discuss everything, which greatly saddens me But Oscar Wilde is beautiful It didn t take long for me to fall in love with the language, to laugh at its oddities and cry yes, I cried when he expressed pain.The Picture of Dorian GrayDorian Gray has his portrait painted by his friend, Basil Hallward, which depicts him as the beautiful youth that he is After a discussion with mutual friend Lord Henry about the importance of beauty, Dorian panics and wishes that the beautiful portrait may grow old and he may keep his youth.Which is exactly what happens.The tale explores Dorian s downfall, the youthful looking man with the corrupted soul Dorian himself reflects my emotion toward the novel beautiful, yet heartbreaking We watch as Dorian becomes obsessed with beauty in life, not seeing the wrong he does And the people around him are oblivious to the degree of his corruption.Lord Henry, however, continued to annoy me He s flippant and arrogant, and he s the type that views himself as right and everyone else as wrong It s Lord Henry that has corrupted Dorian from the start, and you resent him for that Dorian was a lovely, mild mannered man until he first spoke to Lord Henry Even in that first conversation, you knew it couldn t be good Dorian Gray is wonderful and tragic And, as I just learned, Wilde s only novel I regret not having read it sooner.De ProfundisThis is one of the most beautiful things I have ever read Somehow I had never previously heard of De Profundis, so when I reached it in my Wilde anthology I knew absolutely nothing about it But then I learned it s all true That he wrote it to his friend lover Lord Alfred Douglas while he was imprisoned, due to a downward spiral caused by Douglas and his family.It s just something you have to read Wilde goes into detail about their relationship, pointing out all their faults Douglas depended on no, demanded Wilde to pay for his extravagant lifestyle, and wouldn t leave him alone Wilde s art suffered because of it His life suffered because of it The first part of this text is filled with so much bitterness Wilde s desperation to separate himself from Douglas is painfully apparent He says,It may be strange, but I had once again, I will not say the chance, but the duty of separating from you forced upon meTheir relationship was toxic but they kept on reuniting, again and again He also renounces the society he was once part of, convincing himself that he would rather have the freedom of poverty than go back to the lifestyle he once loved.The second half is a tangent that compares Christ to an artist, which is the most beautiful depiction of Christ I have ever read I can only relay it in quotes Nobody is worthy to be loved The fact that God loves man shows us that in the divine order of ideal things it is written that eternal love is to be given to what is eternally unworthy Or if that phrase seems to be a bitter one to bear, let us say that everybody is worthy of love, except him who thinks he is.Or this one Christ was the first person who ever said to people that they should live flower like lives He fixed the phrase He took children as the type of what people should try to become He held them up as examples to their eldersOneChrist does not really teach one anything, but by being brought into his presence one becomes something And everybody is predestined to his presence.I would quote this entire section, if I could.And after all this, after my heart is already broken from its beauty and desperation, Wilde asks why Douglas never wrote to him He provides instructions on how to send him a letter He signs it, your affectionate friend Despite all the hatred, and the fact this man contributed to his bankruptcy and imprisonment, he felt no malice He came full circle That s true love That is Christ like.Onequote, and probably the most ironic of them all And the most true Most people are other people Their thoughts are someone else s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.I wasn t completely in love with Oscar Wilde until I read this letter This piece is the reason this collection has gained a spot on my top ten favorites shelf.Short StoriesRather than discuss them all, I ll just tell you my favorites The Model Millionaire, The Young King, and The Fisherman and his Soul. Check them out Really.PlaysAnd what review of Wilde would be complete without mentioning The Importance of Being Ernest It s ridiculous and hilarious A Woman of No Importance is also worth a mention it had a tendency to get wordy in the middle all right, a lot of his plays did that but the story itself is just fantastic.My only regret is that I hadn t read Wilde earlier in life I was somehow intimidated by him But he really is wonderful, and I had already recommended him to several people before I even finished this collection I want to readfrom him, but I m afraid there isn t much left after this

    The portrait of Mr W.H was bbrrrriiillliaaaaaannntt Had the explanatory notes section permanently bookmarked throughout all twenty stories, though, seeing as there were infinite references many of them biblical of all sorts that required explaining to obtain the slightest understanding of the narratives Many references to Greek mythology as well, and those I always enjoy very much Apart from The Portrait of Mr W.H , my favorites include The House of Judgement from Poems in Prose The portrait of Mr W.H was bbrrrriiillliaaaaaannntt Had the explanatory notes section permanently bookmarked throughout all twenty stories, though, seeing as there were infinite references many of them biblical of all sorts that required explaining to obtain the slightest understanding of the narratives Many references to Greek mythology as well, and those I always enjoy very much Apart from The Portrait of Mr W.H , my favorites include The House of Judgement from Poems in Prose and The Canterville Ghost , especially the second half Love me some ghost stories.And of course the Wilde classic The Happy Prince great to see the fairytale esque side of him that he so often kept hidden Was slightly reluctant to finish this collection because, now that I have, I have finished all of his works in prose Unless, someday, unpublished works of his are exposed to the public eye Fingers crossed Until then, I plan on devouring the rest of his plays and essays As for the writing, same as always beautiful Beautiful beautiful beautiful Would leave my favorite quotes below but there are too many to choose from So read the stories for yourselves, heh Cheers

    Oscar Wilde s short stories collection was an overall wonderful and charming classic His stories were all beautifully written, and his way of storytelling reminded me very much of other fairytale authors works such as the Grimm Brothers By incorporating fantasy and magical creatures into the 18th century setting, he is able to persuade one that the magic just doesn t stop in past time eras magic can still be found in everyday living and even in the simple things around us.My Book Review ht Oscar Wilde s short stories collection was an overall wonderful and charming classic His stories were all beautifully written, and his way of storytelling reminded me very much of other fairytale authors works such as the Grimm Brothers By incorporating fantasy and magical creatures into the 18th century setting, he is able to persuade one that the magic just doesn t stop in past time eras magic can still be found in everyday living and even in the simple things around us.My Book Review

    As I mentioned before, I got off guard and became an Oscar Wilde fan through The Importance of Being Earnest, but to be honest, the thing I most love Mr Wilde for are his short stories The Happy Prince is a story less than 5 pages and still makes me cry each time I read through it.
