Resurrecting Oscar

The title of my book, "The Resurrection of Oscar Wilde: A Cultural Afterlife", expresses my wish to bring all things Wildean into the twenty-first century, to inject a dash of opulence, glamour and beauty into an increasingly drab world. The book is published by James Clarke & Co. The Lutterworth Press, Cambridge.

"The Resurrection of Oscar Wilde: A Cultural Afterlife" is an exploration of public feeling towards Oscar Wilde and his tragedy, which has had a profound effect upon the psyche of the 20th and 21st Century public. Describing such responses as a wave of public mourning, comparisons with Elvis Presley and Diana Princess of Wales are cited in support of an argument which claims that Wilde, as an outsider and an exile, has come to represent the loneliness of contemporary culture.
