A celebration of the virtuoso of well-turned phrases and the master of the studied insult with this collection of his most acerbic quips. No playwright apart from Shakespeare is as widely quoted and Oscar Wilde's needle-sharp rejoinders are often repeated with delight. However, his jibes were rarely cruel, and displayed a profound understanding of the human character and its vanities. Includes such notable quotes as: `Work is the curse of the drinking classes.' Attributed `All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That's his.' The Importance of Being Earnest `We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.' Lady Windermere's Fan With a timeline of his life and quotations divided by themes, this book demonstrates why, more than a hundred years after his death, people are still drawn to Wilde's dazzling repartee and the wicked brilliance of his social observations.
