He is most famous for his sophisticated, brilliantly witty plays, which were the first since the comedies of Sheridan and Goldsmith to have both dramatic and literary merit. He studied at Trinity College, Dublin, and at Magdalen College, Oxford, where he distinguished himself for his scholarship and wit, and also for his elegant eccentricity in dress, tastes, and manners. Influenced by the aesthetic teachings of Walter Pater and John Ruskin, Wilde became the center of a group glorifying beauty for itself alone, and he was famously satirized (with other exponents of “art for art's sake”) in Punch and in Gilbert and Sullivan's operetta Patience. His first published work, Poems (1881), was well received. The next year he lectured to great acclaim in the United States, where his drama Vera (1883) was produced. In 1884 he married Constance Lloyd, and they had two sons, Cyril and Vyvyan.

His other works include a gentle autobiographical novel, The Grass Harp (1951); two collections of short stories, Tree of Night (1949) and Breakfast at Tiffany's (1958); a report of his trip to Russia, The Muses Are Heard (1956); and two collections of nonfiction pieces, The Dogs Bark: Public People and Private Places (1973) and Music for Chameleons (1980).
