Oscar Wilde: His Life and Confessions - Frank Harris

Wordsworth / Wordsworth Literary Lives
Written in 1910 and first privately published in New York in 1916, Frank Harris’ «Oscar Wilde: His Life and Confessions» gained almost instant notoriety.
Attacked by critics for its extravagant inventions, vigorously defended by George Bernard Shaw and hauled into court for libel by Wilde’s friend and lover, Lord Alfred Douglas, Harris’ biography was published in England only in 1938.
Famously inaccurate and lavishly self-serving, Harris’ study none the less offers a highly evocative portrait of a compelling personality — or rather of two personalities, for Harris never shies from enlarging upon his roles as Wilde’s defender, adviser, and sometime friend.
Impressionistic, vivid and well-paced, Harris’ intimate account of Wilde’s rise and fall will fascinate anyone with an interest in a dramatist and poet whose tempestuous, and ultimately tragic, life was his true major work. A serious contender, as one commentator put it, if there were an Olympic gold for lying, Harris provides as near as one gets in biography to a ‘page-turner’.
