""It is not his wit, then, and still less his knack of paradox-twisting, that makes me claim for him a place apart among living dramatists. It is the keenness of his intellect, the individuality of his point of view, the excellence of his verbal style, and above all the genuinely dramatic quality of his inspirations"" - W. Scott, 1894.
Place of publication on title-page 'Paris' but actually London. Published by Leonard Smithers, who was fearful of prosecution." 1903 WILDE, Oscar.
