About this Item

Norfolk. 1947. New Directions. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket. 21. 256 pages. hardcover. keywords: June 6. inventory # 41096. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Oscar Wilde has been strangely neglected by the critics of modern literature and its sources. With the exception of one or two of his perennially popular plays, little but unsavory gossip is now remembered about the man who might be called the originator of both the esoteric estheticism of many of our little magazines, and of the blatant paradox of the Broadway and Hollywood gag-writer. in this perceptive and erudite critical study of Wilde. Mr. Roditi reveals how Oscar Wilde’s ingenious, imaginative and dialectical thought was of monumental importance in his time, and is still a powerful influence on contemporary literature. His detailed analyses of Wilde’s poetry, novels, plays, and critical writings establish, beyond doubt, the central position that Wilde’s works and ideas occupied in the thought and art of his day, and in the shift of English and American literature from established and aging Romanticism to what we now call Modernism.
