The best of Oscar Wilde's poems in a beautiful new gift edition.

'And all men kill the thing they love
By all let this be heard
Some do it with a bitter look
Some with a flattering word
The coward does it with a kiss
The brave man with a sword!'

Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) was born in Dublin, the son of a surgeon and a poet. He was educated at Trinity College, Dublin and Magdalen College, Oxford, where he won the Newdigate poetry prize. In 1884 he married Constance Lloyd, and in 1888 he published The Happy Prince. His only novel, 'The Picture Of Dorian Gray' appeared in 1890. He had major comedy successes in the theatre until he was ruined by imprisonment for homosexual offences. 'The Ballad Of Reading Gaol' (1898) was inspired by his experience in prison.
