Oscar Wilde is mostly known for his plays, essays, and social satires. He is probably one of the more famous playwrights of his era.
The Picture of Dorian Gray is his only published novel.
I have read quite a few of Wilde's essays and stories. I also had the privileged of seeing The Importance of Being Earnest in college performed by a theater group. I have never read his only novel, but I can only imagine that I am in for a huge treat. This will be the only piece I read by Oscar Wilde for my challenge.
