Today is 106th anniversary of Oscar Wildes death.
if if were to be a little excessive i might say that Oscar wilde is the central god in my personal literary pantheon .
Its often been said that in being a writer one tends to write about life rather than live it ,but for oscar wilde this was not the case . art touched every facet of his life . he lived as he saw fit moulding his exsistence to suit his desires rather than succumbing to convention
i rever him for his wit , i admire him for his wisdom and i pity him because love was his downfall love and the cruelty of mediocre men .
i long to live as bravely as he did , disdaining the stupidties of society with a grace and charm that made society adore him
may he never be forgotten
