What does /lit/ think about Oscar Wilde.

Is it just pretentious?

I like the Importance of Being Ernest. Best movie of his vast filmography.
Pretty good critic as well.

Currently reading Dorian Gray. Pretty good so far.
>>
>>7628900
Dorian Gray is one of my favourite novels
>>
>>7628958
Are you saying if I call you a faggot, I am not a faggot?
>>
>>7628969
you can call me daddy if you like, you'll still have missed the intention behind the pretenses you're not sure if wilde adopted or not.
>>
>>7628981
That does not save you from the fact that your first post is incoherent.

Rank moralist and didacticist. A favorite between the ages of 8 and 14. Essentially a writer for very young people. Romantic in the large sense.

Can you call someone like that a moralist?
>>
>>7629018
it's calling you too stupid to understand things. that's why things seem incoherent.
>>
He wasn't at all pretentious.

Sometimes you need to catch a dick in order to properly collect yourself.

He's talking about his children's stories with Jesus, his letters, and general tendency to moral fables and aphoristic style. i.e. Nabokov actually read Wilde, unlike you, who watched a movie with Stephen Fry.
>>

Is Nabokov referring to his own age, or the age of the people that like Wilde?
