This app brings you 12 different recordings of Oscar Wilde’s famous poem – Serenade.

Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde was born in Dublin, the son of an

eye-surgeon and a literary hostess and writer (known under the pseudonym

"Speranza"). After studying at Trinity College, Dublin, Wilde went to

Magdalen College, Oxford, where he achieved a double first and won the

Newdigate prize for a poem "Ravenna".

While at Oxford he became notorious for his flamboyant wit, talent, charm

and aestheticism, and this reputation soon won him a place in London

society. Bunthorne, the Fleshly Poet in Gilbert and Sullivan's opera

Patience was widely thought to be a caricature of Wilde (though in fact it

was intended as a skit of Rossetti) and Wilde seems to have consciously

styled himself on this figure.

In 1882 Wilde gave a one year lecture tour of America, visiting Paris in

1883 before returning to New York for the opening of his first play Vera. In

1884 he married and had two sons, for whom he probably wrote his first book

of fairy tales, The Happy Prince. The next decade was his most prolific and

the time when he wrote the plays for which he is best remembered. His

writing and particularly his plays are epigramatic and witty and Wilde was

not afraid to shock.

This period was also haunted by accusations about his personal life, chiefly

prompted by the Marquess of Queensberry's fierce opposition to the intense

friendship between Wilde and her son, Lord Alfred. These accusations

culminated in 1895 in Wilde's imprisonment for homosexual offences.

While in prison, Wilde was declared bankrupt, and after his release he lived

on the generosity of friends. From prison he wrote a long and bitter letter

to Lord Alfred, part of which was afterwards published as De Profundis, but

after his release he wrote nothing but the poem The Ballad of Reading Gaol.
