The first thing that one notices in Oscar Wilde’s writings is the profane content. In his published works, there are many references to profanity. For example, in A Woman of No Importance, he takes the title character, a woman he impregnates, as a play on words of the phrase “a woman of no importance”. The woman is supposedly ‘nobody’ in Wilde’s eyes, a person who lived a simple life with little significance.

This form of expression is, however, a great irony and Wilde shows that he is able to do it in his work. In The Picture of Dorian Gray, we read about a Lord (Lord Alfred Douglas) with whom Oscar met. Dorian was apparently quite rich but in reality was only a lord and, as we know, Oscar did not live in the same class as him. His pride was evident because he feels that he had risen to a position higher than the Lord, just like Dorian and Oscar talks about how Dorian treated him as if he was so insignificant and he also ended up depressed as Dorian left him.

What Oscar Wilde did was criticize a wealthy male and then wrote that his own life lacked value and worth. In a way, this is very sad because one sees many people in the world who think like him. They think that they have little worth but only after Wilde’s writing did people start to take an interest in this controversial figure of literature. It is not easy to write something about Wilde and therefore it needs the right sources to write about it. With the support of sources like Wikipedia and other websites, one is able to find what one is looking for.
