His genius manifested itself in his plays and poetry but he is equally famous for his penetrating wit, humour and brilliant repartee. Wilde boasted that he could talk spontaneously on any subject, a claim borne out by the range and scope of the examples in this collection. Containing hundreds of profound, profane and humorous quotations from Oscar Wilde on a range of subjects, this fantastic selection A delightful and entertaining book which illuminates a personality unlikely ever to be forgotten.
