Description
Vastly intelligent and cultured—he was a brilliant student at Trinity College in Dublin and Magdalen College in Oxford, and won the Newdigate Prize in 1878 for his poem "Ravenna"—Oscar Wilde was celebrated in Victorian England for his uncanny wit, producing insightful quips, refined epigrams, and needle-sharp rejoinders seemingly without effort. This handsome little volume, wrapped in a linen-textured hardcover with gold foil stampings, collects hundreds of Wilde's quotable observations, from "All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That's his." (The Importance of Being Earnest) to "We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars." (Lady Windermere's Fan).
