Irish Eccentric to Global Icon
Wednesday, 17 October 2018, 6 – 7:30pm
A public lecture presented by Michèle Mendelssohn author of Making Oscar Wilde followed by an audience Q&A hosted by Vice-Provost Chris Morash and organised by Trinity College Library.
Michèle Mendelssohn is a literary critic and cultural historian.
She is Associate Professor of English Literature at Oxford University.
Packed with extraordinary new evidence and gripping social history, Making Oscar Wilde takes the reader behind the scenes to reveal the secret story of his self-creation in Victorian England and post-Civil War America. It brings to life the vanished story of the charming young Irishman who set out to captivate the United States and Britain with his words, and ended up conquering the world.
