Wednesday, June 10, 2 p.m.
Password: Oscar3
Oscar Wilde, born to celebrity parents in Dublin, proved to be a brilliant student of Classic at Oxford University. While there, Oscar became a devotee of Aesthetics, summed up in the aphorism, ‘Art for Art’s sake’. Oscar had become the poster boy of the Aesthetic movement. It was wearing this mask that Oscar travelled to America in 1882 to help promote a comedy operetta mocking Aestheticism. And he played this role beautifully.

Stages and Pages. Oscar’s words and wisdom. →
Wednesday, June 17, 2 p.m.
Password: Oscar4
Oscar’s year-long stay in America helped to give him a much-needed income and to hone his skills as a lecturer but, he returned to London where he again faced the problem of how to survive financially. He even tried journalism, becoming the editor of the Women’s World magazine for two years. Oscar found happiness through his marriage to Constance Lloyd and their two sons. They turned to writing children’s stories, drawing on the rich literary and cultural traditions of Ireland. Around 1890, he started to write some of his most memorable works, including the novel, Dorian Gray. His society plays that followed took the theatre world by storm.

Gross Indecencies. Oscar’s trial, imprisonment and death in exile. →
Wednesday, June 24, 2 p.m.
Password: Oscar5
Oscar’s career as prince of London’s West End ended abruptly in 1895 when he was tried for homosexual activities. English upper-class society, which Oscar had taunted in his plays and other writings, now took its revenge in the cruelest of ways. Oscar was imprisoned for two years with hard labour. All his possessions, including his library, were sold, and he never saw his beloved children or mother again. Following his release, Oscar went into self-imposed exile in France. He stopped writing on the grounds that he felt too sad to do so. Oscar died in Paris in 1900, of injuries sustained while in prison. On his deathbed, he converted to roman Catholicism.

Wednesday, July 1, 2 p.m.
Password: Oscar6
One hundred and twenty years after Oscar’s death, we are still finding new ways to explore and understand this incomparable Irish man. His words and his wisdom remain relevant today. While his humanity—which perhaps at the core of understanding Oscar—is especially comforting and inspirational at times of turmoil. Oscar speaks to us all, and perhaps, for us all.
