epub Oscar Wilde's Guide to Modern Living

Book description

The plays, novels, essays, letters and bons mots of Oscar Wilde form one of the most extraordinary bodies of work in the English language - brilliant, witty, full of wicked insight and dazzling turns of phrase. Oscar Wilde's Guide to Modern Living gathers hundreds of the writer's pithiest utterances and epigrams in a collection of late nineteenth-century wisdom that has an uncanny relevance to the late twentieth. Whether holding forth on morality ("Simply the attitude we adopt towards persons we dislike"), education ("Nothing worth knowing can be taught"), criticism ("The highest form of autobiography"), or the Pope ("I was deeply impressed, and my walking stick showed signs of budding"), Wilde's voice rings with the unique imagination and keen intelligence that continued to his deathbed ("It's the wallpaper or me. One of us has to go") and sounds amazingly fresh and current today.
