Oscar Wilde...A book or poem which has no pity in it had better not be written.
DOB 16 October 1854
DOD: 30 November 1900
Wilde produced four society comedies in the early 1890s, which made him one of the most successful playwrights of late Victorian London. Was an Irish writer and poet.At the turn of the 1890s, he refined his ideas about the supremacy of art in a series of dialogues and essays, and incorporated themes of decadence, duplicity, and beauty into his only novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray (1890).
Lady Windermere's Fan A Woman of No Importance, and An Ideal Husband were plays as was
Salomé. The Importance of being Earnest is considered his greatest play.
His book, The Picture of Dorian Gray
He revised it extensively for book publication in 1891: Wilde claimed the plot was "an idea that is as old as the history of literature but to which I have given a new form". Modern critics have considered the novel to be technically mediocre: the conceit of the plot has guaranteed its fame, but the device is never pushed to its full.
