Saturday 3 February 2018|10am-4pm Tutor: Geoff Doel | Canterbury campus | £39 Explore Oscar Wilde’s witty iconoclasm, hedonism and delightful social satire through a biographical introduction and a selection of his plays and stories. At the end of the 19th Century, writers were increasingly challenging conventional Victorian attitudes to culture, sex and politics. Oscar Wilde did this through his own lifestyle, but also through the witty satire and political insights of his drama and the philosophical and social elements of his stories. We’ll particularly focus on The Picture of Dorian Gray, the political corruption of An Ideal Husband and the short stories Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime and The Portrait of Mr W.H. Plus a detailed look at Wilde’s fascinating life and career.
