Oscar Wilde
This community is dedicated to the great Oscar Wilde, 19th century playwright, poet and wit. Often considered a genius, he coined an abundance of quotes that even now are near and dear to the hearts of many.
Oscar Wilde does not often receive the respect that he deserves, particularly in a century that has long since forgotten about the glory days of decadence, dandies, and green carnations. If you still hold on to those aesthetic years of the 19th century, or simply respect the man and his crowd for their creative achievements, please share your thoughts with this community.
