Wilde lives: Derek Jarman and the queer eighties
Cook, Matt (2009) Wilde lives: Derek Jarman and the queer eighties. In: Bristow, J. (ed.) Oscar Wilde and Modern Culture: The Making of a Legend. Athens, U.S.: Ohio University Press, pp. 285-304. ISBN 9780821418376.
Oscar Wilde and Modern Culture: The Making of a Legend explores the meteoric rise, sudden fall, and legendary resurgence of an immensely influential writer’s reputation from his hectic 1881 American lecture tour to recent Hollywood adaptations of his dramas. Always renowned—if not notorious—for his fashionable persona, Wilde courted celebrity at an early age. Later, he came to prominence as one of the most talented essayists and fiction writers of his time.
