Présentation de l'éditeur

Winner of both the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Pulitzer Prize, Oscar Wilde is the definitive biography of the tortured poet and playwright and the last book by renowned biographer and literary critic Richard Ellmann. Ellmann dedicated two decades to the research and writing of this biography, resulting in a complex and richly detailed portrait of Oscar Wilde. Ellman captures the wit, creativity, and charm of the psychologically and sexually complicated writer, as well as the darker aspects of his personality and life. Covering everything from Wilde's rise as a young literary talent to his eventual imprisonment and death in exile with exquisite detail, Ellmann's fascinating account of Wilde's life and work is a resounding triumph.

Biographie de l'auteur

Richard Ellmann, during a long and distinguished career, won international recognition as a scholar, teacher of English literature, critic, and biographer. His magesterial life of James Joyce has been widely acclaimed as the greatest literary biography of the century.
Ellmann was born in Highland Park, Michigan, in 1918. He studied at Yale and at Trinity College in Dublin. He taught at Harvard, Yale, Northwestern, Emory, the University of Chicago, Indiana University, and Oxford, where he was Goldsmiths' Professor of English Literature and Fellow of New College.
His James Joyce (National Book Award, 1959) was preceded by Yeats: The Man and the Masks and The Identity of Yeats, and was followed by—among other greatly praised books—two volumes of Joyce letters, Eminent Domain, and Four Dubliners.
Ellmann died in May 1987, in Oxford, soon after completing Oscar Wilde, to which he had devoted some two decades of study, research, and writing.

Un livre quelque peu rebutant au premier abord. Cependant c'est par trop de précision que l'ouvrage peut rebuter au premier coup d'oeil mais pas pour autant par manque d'intérêt. C'est la biographie la plus complète à ce jour. Les premiers chapitres peuvent paraître parfois longs mais aprés tout pourquoi rajouter de l'action là où il n'y en eut point: c'est la différence entre fiction et biographie. C'est un livre indémodable et nécessaire pour les amateurs de Wilde.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Full Sum of the Man, His Work and His Times 16 mars 2000
Par Edward Dunn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
With this volume, Richard Ellmann elevates Oscar Wilde into the select circle of Ireland's other literary giants of whom he wrote so eloquently: William Butler Yeats and James Joyce. (It was left to Michael Holroyd to give George Bernard Shaw his due.) While this volume is a sophisticated, wide-ranging, scholarly biography, it also brims with Wilde's wit and bold life, which, as Oscar himself pointed out, was where his genius lay. The slow, steady accumulation of detail, allusion and anecdote pays off as Wilde reaches his pinnacle--the original production of "The Importance of Being Earnest"--only to plunge into the abyss of imprisonment. As Wilde tempts fate with rough trade dalliances and his ill-conceived challenge to the Marquess of Queensbury, you find yourself almost shouting out for him to stop and save himself. But he doesn't, because Ellmann makes us understand that Wilde's nature led him to that point. The end is sad, but his wit never deserts him, right up until his death throes when he notes that either the wallpaper in the room must go or he must--which he does shortly thereafter. Today, qualities that Wilde pioneered are a part of modern life: camp humor, scathing put-downs, an emphasis on style, an obsession with appearances. In Wilde's day, he was an almost solitary figure in that regard, leading the way into the modern world. The witticisms of "The Importance of Being Earnest" are as humorous and apt today as the day they were first spoken in London in 1895. Richard Ellmann helps us understand why.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I loved this book. Poor Oscar, such a good heart and so abused. 28 octobre 2013
Par eledavf Vivian - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book will tear your heart. The infamy of his prosecution, and persecution, is beyond words. He never savaged his detractors as they did him, primarily the execrable egotist, the tiny little man named Whistler but also Swinburne, so cowardly yet such an unforgettable poet. But at least Swinburne had an excuse since he was psychologically damaged.

How many benefitted from his help or encouragement in his glory days, yet figuratively spat at him when a maniac (the Marquess of Queensberry) pursued him to his destruction.

His magnificent Biblical drama Salome and the poems inspired by his prison stay will not be forgotten. Nor will Dorian Grey, the ultimate in the tracing of a descent into unspeakable depths.

And somewhere down there in those depths can be discerned the ridiculous yet hideous spirit of Alfred Douglas, a man whose existence was totally pointless.

Among the numberless acquaintances of this tragic figure I must pay tribute to Nellie Melba, rarely described as warm-hearted, but it was she who emptied her purse for him on a Paris street when, threadbare and penniless, he was forced to ask for money.

That powerfully descriptive phrase "emptied her purse" is straight from the book, just one of many memorable phrases that make the history live for the reader.

I believe there never was and never will be a superior biography of Oscar Wilde.

Oscar Wilde's unconventional life is recorded in this book b Richard Ellmann. It is a great book in small font; however, the font does not detract from the page-turning account of this English writer whose life was ah, very interesting due to his personal life. Wilde was gay and happy, but went through trials, literally, and tribulations related to his sexuality. His literary work is irresistible and still read and his play, THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST is still staged by amateur performers to the delight of theatre goers.

Oscar Wilde led a fast and furious life and ended it sadly so youthfully. Litterati have his written works and this biography examines the myriad of tiles that made up the mosaic of Oscar Wilde.

Another wonderful book by Richard Ellman, who approaches Wilde as one approaches a noise in the night--with patience, caution, and carrying a big stick. Wildly readable and a real page-turner (virtually impossible in a biography), Ellman brings all of the delight and disappointments from being around Wilde to life. Highly recommended.

Not for anyone who does not have a lot of time to devote to reading this very very detailed biography. I actually got it for my grandson's grade 12
required reading list, and it downloaded onto all 3 of my kindles .
