Boards and pages are clean, unmarked, brightly colored, tightly bound and sharp cornered. Contains many black & white, as well as full-color illustrations and photographs throughout. "The story of Oscar Wilde has usually been told in terms of hubris - as the story of a child of the gods, lavishly endowed with every talent except that of restraint. This biography, however, argues that there is a more prosaic explanation of his theatrical triumphs and social collapse: Wilde was a child not of the gods, but of the Victorians, and his tragedy was that he allowed himself to remain one."
