Oscar Wilde- featured image

Oscar Wilde was a novelist, playwright, poet, critic, and eminent figure. He was a sensitive human being. There are deep feelings of life, secrets of relationships, interpretation of sacred beauty, the story of human heartbeats. He has expressed his anguish, depression, and humiliation somewhere in his literature. Despite this, his works have a special kind of softness and move in a particular direction.

When his plays were at their peak, Oscar Wilde was accused of being homosexual. And this was a severe crime in society. As a result, he had lost all the respect and achievements he had earned. He even had to undergo rigorous imprisonment for two years. After his release from prison, Oscar began to be ill. He had no one except loneliness that became the reason for his death.

Witt, irony, style, epigram, and other light-heavy literary tantrums are in the writings of Oscar Wilde. This quality came because the Oscars believed that art was only for art. The purpose of art is not to improve. Art is just for creating. The writer will resist only by writing. Oscar Wilde is no more with us today, but as the creator, he lives on in the form of his creations, his thoughts. With so much admiration for such a great artist, I want to share some famous Oscar Wilde quotes with you all.
