From the organizers

Oscar Wilde (1854 – 1900), an Irish writer, was one of the most important authors of American aestheticism in the 19th century Europe. He was the pioneer of the “art taste art” at that time, and expressed his ideological ideas not only through manifests, but also through works, even through costume styles.

Oscar Wilde’s works have been published in Vietnam many times, especially two literary works: the novel “The Dorian Gray Painting” and the short story collection “The Happy Prince“. Recently, in 2019, an episode of 4 Oscar Wilde essays was recently translated and published in Vietnam, called “Art and craftsman“. However, his diverse and unique block of work has not yet been fully introduced to Vietnamese readers, especially in the genre of drama and poetry. In Vietnam, there is still no adequate and worthy research about him.

In this spring talk, writer Ha Thuy Nguyen will share about Oscar Wilde and his beautiful literature through the following issues:
– Summary of American idealism in the late 19th century.
– Major events in the life of Oscar Wilde and his worship of beauty.
– Idealistic thought in the literature of Oscar Wilde.
