100 citations d'Oscar Wilde

Author: Oscar Wilde Narrator: Nicolas Planchais Release Date: January 2017

Oscar Wilde, est un écrivain irlandais. Il se construit un personnage d'esthète et de dandy. À l'issue de ses études, Wilde s'installe à Londres, où il parvient à s'insérer dans la bonne société et les cercles cultivés, s'illustrant dans plusieurs genres littéraires. Au tournant des années 1890, il précise sa théorie esthétique dans une série de dialogues et d'essais, et explore dans son roman Le Portrait de Dorian Gray (1890) les liens entretenus par la beauté, la décadence et la duplicité. Wilde enchaîne cependant avec quatre comédies de mœurs, qui font de lui l'un des dramaturges les plus en vue de Londres. Indissociables de son talent littéraire, sa personnalité hors du commun, le mordant de son esprit, le brillant de sa conversation et de ses costumes assuraient sa renommée. Ces 100 citations visent à donner accès à son œuvre monumentale par une sélection de ses pensées les plus marquantes, dans un format accessible à tous. Une citation est plus qu'un extrait d'un propos, ce peut être un trait d'esprit, un résumé d'une pensée complexe, une maxime, une ouverture sur une réflexion plus profonde.

100 quotes by Oscar Wilde Audiobook

100 quotes by Oscar Wilde

Author: Oscar Wilde Narrator: Katie Haigh Release Date: March 2016

Oscar Wilde is remembered as one of the wittiest minds ever, thanks to his provocative style and humor. In the 1890s, he was one of London's most popular playwrights; his masterpieces are The Importance of Being Earnest and the dark and fantastical Picture of Dorian Gray. His writings entwine themes of beauty, decadence and duplicity, which made him a more than colorful agent provocateur in the Victorian society. This would eventually lead to a very public trial after he was accused of sodomy. His defense, punctuated with witticism, often left the court roaring with laughter, but the evidence was against him, and he was eventually sent to prison. We have selected for you 100 of his funniest and most provocative quotes, for you to relent in his humor and spice up your conversation with surprises and puns.

A House of Pomegranates Audiobook

A House of Pomegranates

Author: Oscar Wilde Narrator: Alex Lau Release Date: January 2017

Oscar Wilde supposedly said that these fables were 'intended neither for the British child nor the British public'. A follow-up to his first popular fairy-tale collection (`The Happy Prince and Other Tales‘), `A House of Pomegranates‘ (1891) is indeed decidedly darker and more adult. The collection includes 'The Young King', 'The Birthday of the Infanta, 'The Fisherman of his Soul', and 'The Star Child'. While similar, in some ways, to the fairy-tales of Hans Christian Andersen and the Brothers Grimm these have a certain interesting Wilde flair to them that is hard to pinpoint.

An Ideal Husband Audiobook

An Ideal Husband

Author: Oscar Wilde Narrator: Various Performers Release Date: October 2001

A tender love story, a serpentine villainess, a glittering setting in London society and a shower of Wildean witticisms are only a few of the reasons this play has enjoyed hugely successful revivals in London and New York. This 1895 drama also seems eerily prescient, as it explores the plight of a promising young politician, desperate to hide a secret in his past. With empathy and wit, Wilde explores the pitfalls of holding public figures to higher standards than the rest of us. Includes an interview with Michael Hackett, the Chair of the Department of Theater at the University of California, Los Angeles. In addition to his extensive directorial work for L.A. Theatre Works - which includes plays by Oscar Wilde, Tennessee Williams, and Noel Coward - Michael has directed for the Royal Opera, Covent Garden; the Royal Theatre at the Hague; and the Los Angeles Opera. An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring: Rosalind Ayres as Lady Gertrude Chiltern Jacqueline Bisset as Mrs. Cheveley Paul Gutrecht as Vicomte de Nanjac Martin Jarvis as Sir Robert Chiltern Robert Machray as Phipps Miriam Margolyes as Lady Markby Alfred Molina as Lord Goring Jim Norton as Lord Caversham Yeardley Smith as Mabel Chiltern Directed by Michael Hackett.
