Oscar Wilde died in 1890. He was a man that changed the course of British literary history. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature for his novel The Picture of Dorian Gray. A famous fact about Wilde is that he was arrested and imprisoned for gay sex several times. This is one reason why the majority of people consider him a pervert. His other two novels, which are histories, are known as Queen Mab and The Tomb. These three books have influenced many writers, including James Joyce, the great Irish writer.

There are many misconceptions about the life of Oscar Wilde, including his being gay. His life before Wilde’s homosexuality was made public was much more respectable than his life after it was publicized. It was during this time when he was living with several men as a gay and professional playwright. His early writing career was very tumultuous and unpredictable. He was given the nickname O’Riley, meaning ‘Foul-mouthed Rascal’.

A short time after Wilde received his first of two prison sentences for homosexual activities, he was publicly humiliated in public. His reputation, which had been tarnished by his criminal history, continued to get worse. When he was released from prison, he was ready to flee Britain. However, there were many reasons why he wanted to stay in England. He wanted to work as a theatre actor, and to save his reputation. He also wanted to be close to his friends, his family and his wife.
