These narrations were taken down by competent persons skilled in both languages, and as far as possible in the very words of the narrator; so that much of the primitive simplicity of the style has been retained, while the legends have a peculiar and special value as coming direct from the national heart2222ocn022388039book19910.20WildeIrish cures, mystic charms, and superstitions+-+955734153517918ocn000104642book18900.79WildeAncient cures, charms, and usages of Ireland; contributions to Irish lore1607ocn001216656book19070.63Wilde, OscarThe writings of Oscar WildeBiography1268ocn001262499book18930.88Meinhold, WilhelmSidonia the sorceress : the supposed destroyer of the whole reigning ducal house of PomeraniaFiction+-+81249917961179ocn002743206book18740.86Meinhold, WilhelmSidonia the sorceressFiction11718ocn010319244book18000.84WildePoems1084ocn015807147book18930.92WildeSocial studies905ocn001707863book18640.93WildePoems832ocn033442541book19960.21WildeAncient legends of Ireland+-+9333941535545ocn005516320book18910.88WildeNotes on men, women, and booksCriticism, interpretation, etc468ocn006898042book19070.70WildeEssays and stories375ocn015005842book18840.66WildeDriftwood from Scandinavia322ocn062152944book20060.23WildeLegends, charms and superstitions of Ireland+-+7882991395182ocn034485649book18800.79Wilde, W.

Horan presents his own biography of Speranza and Wilde to illustrate that they were, paradoxically, both rebellious and conventional. He terms this contradictory impulse to upset and maintain the status quo "conventional Bohemianism." Horan then explores Speranza's presence in Wilde's literature and stresses that he shared her love of paradox, which he used to explain his contradictory views about nationalism, feminism, love, motherhood, and imprisonment. Horan argues that, even though Wilde longed to be recognized by fashionable London society, he was "self-alienated" because he was hailed as the son of an Irish nationalist poet. He illustrates that feminism was problematic for both mother and son - they were both trailblazing feminists. Nevertheless, Speranza idealized wives as self-sacrificing and submissive, and Wilde idealized female lovers as objects of beauty. Horan asserts that Speranza's love of Irish myth fostered young Wilde's love of fantasy, which is evidenced in his fairy tales and The Picture of Dorian Gray. He concludes that Wilde wrote fantasy, in part, to identify humanity's inhumanity, to acknowledge that love is often unreciprocated, and to affirm the naturalness of homosexuality. He also proposes that Wilde wrote fiction and drama, to present the self-sacrificing nature of motherhood; his mother's characters clearly exhibit Speranza's at once conventional and Bohemian personality. Finally, the author demonstrates that in "De Profundis," Wilde acknowledged Speranza's wise and paradoxical credo that sorrow brings joy+-+28828138352483ocn000361678book19670.70White, Terence De VereThe parents of Oscar Wilde: Sir William and Lady WildeBiography2161ocn030737298book19940.56Melville, JoyMother of Oscar : the life of Jane Francesca WildeHistoryBiography2042ocn000756312book19670.70Lambert, EricMad with much heart : a life of the parents of Oscar Wilde1877ocn004563201book19110.88Bremont, Anna Dunphy comtesse deOscar Wilde and his Mother : a memoirBiography1832ocn001510737book19510.73Wyndham, HoraceSperanza; a biography of Lady WildeBiography973ocn758496049book20110.88Hanberry, GerardMore lives than one : the remarkable Wilde family through the generationsThe story of Oscar Wilde and his extraordinary family is a remarkable one.
