Great Lives: Oscar Wilde

Writing about web page http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01ddxcq/Great_Lives_Series_27_Oscar_Wilde/

This edition of Radio 4's Great Lives series features Oscar Wilde, with discussion by Will Self, Matthew Parris, and Franny Moyle, the biographer of Wilde's wife Constance. The programme is fairly predictably but nonetheless informative in its focus on Wilde's later years, and the 1895 trial in particular, with some focus on The Picture of Dorian Gray. It's also interesting to hear the perspective of Wilde's wife being raised - and if you want to know more about Constance Wilde then Franny Moyle's biography Constance: The Tragic and Scandalous Life of Mrs Oscar Wilde is well worth reading.
