Bibliographic information


' lucid and thorough accounts of the developments of Wilde criticism from Wilde's day to our own, with particular and appropriate emphasis on the explosion of Wilde studies over the last decade...One comes away from this volume feeling enormously heartened by the sheer breadth and catholicity of Wilde studies and of late-nineteenth century studies across the board.' - Jonathan Freedman, Professor of English, University of Michigan, USA

'...The ten chapters that make up this informative and stimulating volume, each written by an established specialist, go to the heart of current Wilde scholarship...An extensive chronology and select bibliography are included for good measure. Readers, viewers, Wildean devotees, students of literary tradition and popular culture alike will find here suitable amplification of the reasons Wilde stands apart from all other late-19th-century writers...Highly recommended.' - Choice
