Abstract:

Personal recollections from André Gide on a man who profoundly influenced his work{u2014}Oscar Wilde André Gide, a towering figure in French letters, draws upon his friendship with Oscar Wilde to sketch a compelling portrait of the tragic, doomed author, both celebrated and shunned in his time. Rather than compile a complete biography, Gide invites us to discover Wilde as he did{u2014}from their first meeting in 1891 to their final parting just two years before Wilde{u2019}s death{u2014}all told through Gide{u2019}s sensitive, incomparable prose. Using his notes, recollections, and conversations, Gide illuminates Wilde as a man whose true art was not writing, but living. This ebook features a new introduction by Jeanine Parisier Plottel, selected quotes, and an image gallery.
