Lady Jane Francesca Wilde (1821-1896) is today best known as the mother of Oscar Wilde (1854-1900), but in her lifetime was famous in her own right as a fervent supporter of Irish Nationalism. After the death of her husband in 1876, Lady Wilde wrote to support herself, her other works including essays, literary criticism and travel writing. She was also a strong supporter of feminism and the campaign for female suffrage and legal rights. This volume, first published in 1893, contains a collection of essays on various topics of importance to Lady Wilde, including feminism, good manners and aesthetic clothing, with short biographies of Irish Nationalist leaders. This volume was Lady Wilde's last published work, and provides a valuable example of her writing style and the influence of the aesthetic movement on social behaviour.

Complete poetry by Oscar Wilde( Book )

34 editions published between 1800 and 2011 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume follows as closely as possible the chronological order of composition, highlighting autobiographical elements including the young Wilde's conflicting attitudes to Greece and Rome, pagan and Christian, and his fluctuating attraction to Roman Catholicism. The Appendix shows Wilde's original ordering, constructed with great care around a 'musical' arrangement of themes. The poems reveal unexpected aspects of a literary chameleon usually identified with sparkling wit and social comedy
Sidonia the sorceress by Wilhelm Meinhold( Book )

9 editions published between 1893 and 1926 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this novel, the character of Sidonia is based upon the real-life Sidonia von Borcke, an Eastern European noblewoman from the early 17th century who was tried and convicted of witchcraft and burned at the stake. As versions of the story were passed down over the years, Sidonia was represented as more of a femme fatale character. Wilhelm Mienhold's telling of the Sidonia story, first published in German in 1848, fascinated the English Pre-Raphaelite artists and gained something of a cult following in Victorian Britain. Edward Burne-Jones depicted Sidonia in one of his paintings from 1860, and this beautiful volume, translated by Lady Wilde (Oscar Wilde's mother), was printed by William Morris at his Kelmscott Press

Lady Jane Wilde's letters to Constance Wilde, friends and acquaintances, with selected correspondence received by Wilde( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current final volume is a collection of correspondence written by Lady Jane Wilde to her daughter-in-law, Constance Wilde, as well as other friends and acquaintances. Lady Wilde, like her son Oscar, was an excellent writer. She had a wide range of interests. Much of the ridicule directed at Lady Wilde and her writing and lifestyle followed the imprisonment of her son in 1894 and reflected Victorian prejudices. These letters provide a different picture: that of a reflective, intelligent and kind woman. An excellent work in deciphering Lady Wilde's personal handwritten letters and corresponde
Memoir of Gabriel Beranger, and his labours in the cause of Irish art and antiquities, from 1760 to 1780 by W. R Wilde( Book )

2 editions published in 1880 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir William Wilde (1815-76), surgeon and father of Oscar Wilde, was an Irish patriot and antiquarian with a keen interest in the history of his country. This life of Gabriel Beranger (1729-1817), published in 1880, describes the activities of an Irish antiquarian in the eighteenth century. Born in Rotterdam, the Huguenot Beranger moved to Dublin in 1750 and opened a print shop. Historical pursuits were becoming popular in Dublin society at the time, and Beranger's sketches of ruins and monuments found great popularity. He went on several tours of Ireland, keeping a journal of his observations and the people he encountered, while making plans and drawings of antiquities with a view to later publication. Wilde's work, drawn from Beranger's journal and from the memories of people who had known him in his old age, offers an engaging insight into early antiquarian practice in Ireland
