Oscar needs no introduction.

Kit (Christopher) is probably less well known. He wrote The Tragical History of the Life and Death of Doctor Faustus in the 16th century.

Both of these writers explored the phenomenon of “selling your soul to the devil.”

Wilde’s book is of it’s time. Fin de siècle. End of the century. Most of us have experienced this vibe – Y2K ?

It’s like we all rush to as much bad as we can because we fear the end of the world (?)

I don’t really care how or who Oscar loved. He was punished for it…The Ballad of Reading Gaol.

He did marry and father children. Although they all disowned him.

We make choices.

I LOVE the film in the video below. The book holds less appeal. Which is very backwards and retarded of me


A brilliant video on the book. In my opinion.
