Oscar Wilde by Richard Ellmann ( Book )

In this long-awaited biography, Wilde the legendary Victorian--brilliant writer and conversationalist, reckless flouter of social and sexual conventions--is brought to life. More astute and forbearing, yet more fallible than legend has allowed, Wilde is given here the dimensions of a modern hero. The author depicts Wilde's comet-like ascent on the Victorian scene and his equally dramatic sudden eclipse. He presents Wilde's Irish background, the actresses to whom he paid court, his unfortunate wife and lovers, his clothes, coiffures, and the decor of his rooms. The saga of his 1882 American tour is recounted with a wealth of new details; also his later impact on the bastions of the French literary establishment. The London of the Nineties, of Whistler and the Pre-Raphaelites, Lillie Langtry and the Prince of Wales, is evoked alongside Paris of the "belle époque" and the Greece, Italy and North Africa of Wilde's travels. This critical account of Wilde's entire oeuvre shows him as the proponent of a radical new aesthetic who was perilously at odds with Victorian society. After his period of success and daring, the fatal love affair with Lord Alfred Douglas is followed by exposure, imprisonment, a few wretched years abroad and death in exile. The tragic end of Wilde's life leaves the reader with a sense of compassion and grief for the protagonist

Giacomo Joyce by James Joyce ( Book )
61 editions published between 1968 and 2007 in 10 languages and held by 1,098 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Giacomo Joyce is a short story written by James Joyce in 1914, and published posthumously, about the frustrated desire of a teacher - James Joyce himself - for one of his female students. The writing is a compilation of fragments of prose and poetry in which the influences of the East on Trieste's setting and the erotic desire for the female protagonist are omnipresent. A wonderfully rich style both obscures the meaning of the text as well as opens it up for wide interpretation. Great writing, but for some maybe a little enigmatic
