Editorial Reviews

"This book fills an important gap in the field. Kingston brings together a broad range of works that reflect Wilde's influence during his lifetime and well beyond. Its genre of annotated-bibliography-as-narrative stands as engaged criticism, contributing greatly to our knowledge of both the artist as critic and critic as artist. This is not straightforward biography, but rigorous textual analysis that broadens our understanding of Wilde as author and cultural subject." - Frederick Roden, University of Connecticut
