Oscar Wilde: A Biographical Overview

Oscar Wilde was an Irish playwright, poet, and author who was widely known for his wit, flamboyance, and unconventional personal life. He was born in Dublin in 1854 and grew up in a literary family, with his mother being a successful poet and his father being a surgeon. Wilde attended Trinity College in Dublin before moving to Oxford, where he excelled academically and developed a reputation as a dandy and a wit.

Constance Lloyd was an author and activist who was born in 1858 in London. She was the daughter of a wealthy lawyer and grew up in a privileged household. She met Wilde in 1881, and they were married in 1884. The couple had two children together, Cyril and Vyvyan.

Despite Wilde’s reputation as a ladies’ man, his marriage to Constance was a happy one, at least initially. Constance was supportive of Wilde’s career and encouraged him to pursue his artistic passions. However, their marriage was strained when Constance learned that Wilde was homosexual. This revelation led to a sexual awakening for Constance, as she began to explore her own sexuality and desire for other women.
