Playwright, novelist, musician, poet, philanthropist, historian, short story writer - these are just a few of the professions of individuals that Oscar Wilde has corrupted with his rampant sexuality and Rabelaisian appetites.
A man whose wisdom touches on nearly every conceivable topic, often without consent, which in turn has led to several lawsuits. Renown'd for his beautiful diction and his skilled oratory, Oscar is without doubt one of the leading literary figures of the first few days of March in 1895.
Oscar Wilde is hailed as one of the most brilliant men who ever existed and ruler of Uncyclopedia without really having done anything to merit this. Just accept it.
Born Oscar "Fingers O'Flaherty" Wilde on October 16 1854 in Dublin, Ireland to an Anglo-Irish family. His father Sir Jack Wilde was an author and a scientist (his most famous contribution to the world was an early form of LSD, whilst his mother Milena made her name as an entertainer of little note). Contrary to unpopular belief, Oscar Wilde's last name is indeed, Wilde.
Oscar excelled during his academic years, with a number of his tutors stating that he was always willing to lend a hand to the younger boys. After boarding school, he attended Maudlin College, Oxford, where he graduated with a double-first in Modern Classics and Flower Arranging. His classics tutor, Walter Patewr, remarked that Oscar had great natural ability but that "where others may fail, he would always go the extra distance and make a proper fist of it". (more...)
