On Oscar Wilde

I read The Picture of Dorian Gray in 8th or 9th grade. My inspiration for it being that I liked Dorian in The League of Extraordinary Gentleman, but at least I got something good out of that movie! I don’t know if I realized in 8th grade that The Happy Prince, in which I played a professor, was written by Oscar Wilde.

I would like to note that my glasses are askew and my name was misspelled on the site where I found this. I’m also 13. 

If it weren’t for Oscar Wilde I wouldn’t have known the word aesthetic before it became part of common language. I am not sure what he would think of that fact.

This age of ours, an age that reads so much, that it has no time to admire, and writes so much that it has no time to think. – Oscar Wilde from “To Read or Not to Read”
