This was a fascinating non-fiction account of what happened at Oscar Wilde’s trial, and while I thought that I knew roughly what had happened, there was plenty here that I didn’t know about.

It’s also an excerpt from a longer book and so I should probably pick that up at some point. Ellmann is a talented researcher and writer and he made the complexities of law more approachable.

Here we have four short stories from Oscar Wilde which provide a great little insight into what it was that made him such an iconic writer. It’s a nice enough place to start, but it’s no Dorian Grey.
