Works and contribution of Oscar Wilde

 Q:   Ask a Question about Works and contribution of Oscar Wilde       
Wilde after being tired of journalism then concentrated again on his aesthetic ideas more fully & produced a series of dialogues. His works started getting published in the major literary intellectually journals.

In July 1890, The Picture of Dorian Gray was published. One of his major contributions include the Salome which brought him fame not only in London but also in Paris. Hereby some of his noteworthy contributions are mentioned:


It was co-created by Wilde & Lord Alfred Douglas in 1983. The book was a result of the intimated friendship that was created between them in Oxford at a time when Alfred was an undergraduate. According to Douglas, the relationship they shared was on a purely intellectual & emotional level & not sexual. Wilde treated him as a younger brother.


Wilde with his criticisms towards the Victorian Society, with his dress & talking mannerisms, had found a way to criticize the society by his own special communicational abilities. His works spoke out what was there in his heart. His acts were comic & witty, but underneath there were subtle criticisms.

The audience like Lady Windermere after watching the performance ‘Lady Windermere’s Fan’ put up at James theatre & were forced to soften harsh social codes in favor of a more nuanced view. The play was astonishingly famous, spread out throughout the country for months, but was severely criticized by the conservatives.

At the end of every show he would thank the audience & give a bolt of his sarcastic gratitude. Wilde apart from this was also commissioned to write two more plays apart from ‘A Woman of No Importance’.

Feasting With Panthers

Wilde was not infatuated with Douglas & then began an affair, consorting together regularly. Wilde & Douglas had their own style of acting, while Wilde was flamboyant & indiscreet; Lord Douglas was reckless in public.

Wilde whose salary at the Woman’s World magazine was 6 pound was now earning up to 100 pounds a week for his plays, indulged Douglas’ every whim: material, artistic or sexual. Their relationship was not marked with fidelity, & Douglas soon dragged Wilde into the Victorian underground of gay prostitution.
