Wild Wilde West
page 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 |

After Wilde’s release from prison, he reunited with Douglas. They parted after three months and Wilde wrote nothing more, devoting himself instead to conversation, which many considered his true forte anyway. Wilde’s contemporary George Bernard Shaw called him “the best talker of his time.”

“I am sure Oscar has not found the gates of heaven shut against him,” wrote Shaw after Wilde’s death in 1900. “He is too good company to be excluded.”

Anne Burke is a senior writer for UCLA Magazine. On October 22-23, the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library will host “Oscar Wilde at 150: A Legend in the Making.”
