    From the mysterious dedication of Shakespeare s sonnets, Oscar Wilde imagine a forger of history.Anecdotal but original enough to be read without trouble.

    The fact that William Shakespeare s Sonnets are dedicated to one Mr W.H has been the source of much speculation Eighteenth century critic Thomas Tyrwhitt suggests that the sonnets are written for a person known as William Hughes He bases this theory on his interpretation of the Sonnets, lines like A man in hue, all Hues in his controlling the 20th sonnet where the word Hue is capitalised and italicised and the multiple puns on the name Will found in the sonnets.The Portrait of Mr W.H The fact that William Shakespeare s Sonnets are dedicated to one Mr W.H has been the source of much speculation Eighteenth century critic Thomas Tyrwhitt suggests that the sonnets are written for a person known as William Hughes He bases this theory on his interpretation of the Sonnets, lines like A man in hue, all Hues in his controlling the 20th sonnet where the word Hue is capitalised and italicised and the multiple puns on the name Will found in the sonnets.The Portrait of Mr W.H is a sho...

    Wilde was so enad of his theory about Shakespeare s love of a boy actor which was, in theory, Shakespeare s inspiration for the sonnets that he wrote this story to frame it After it was published it raised a furor, so naturally Wilde had to expand it The enlarged version adds corroboration for the theory and isphilosophical, but it doesn t improve the original story It s like a chocolate covered carrot Unless you re a carrot loving Shakespeare scho...

    An enjoyable story in which Wilde brings to fiction the theory that Shakespeare s sonnets were addressed to a Willie Hughes, a young male actor in Shakespeare s company The theory was actually first presented by Thomas Tyrwhitt in the an English scholar living in the 18th century In his theory, however, William Hughes may have been a musician for the Earl of Essex as there...

    As with much of Wilde s fiction, this is less a story than an exploration of an idea Here, the exploration has to do with obsession the fallacy in much literary theory when someone wants to prove the point of their obsession and how that obsession can disappear as quickly as it came once the idea has been shared with someone else Perhaps others might find the ending sad or even tragic I thought it was funn...

    One thing I hate and love about Oscar Wilde is that he makes the start and the end beautiful but what I hate about him is that he makes story uselessly long with arguments and debates This was also great from start boring in between but brilliant in the end The story was written well, the concept was around the mystery of Mr W.H of Shakespeare sonnets The story line went fine not that great but fine The best thing about the story was that it showed how obsession is a young man s game and ho One thing I hate and love about Oscar Wilde is that he makes the start and the end beautiful but what I hate about him is that he makes story uselessly long with arguments and debates This was also great from start boring in between but brilliant in the end The story was written well, ...

    It is not surprising that The Portrait of Mr W H., written shortly before The Picture of Dorian Gray, caused a scandal when first published Although only 88 pages long, in this part work of fiction, part literary criticism , Wilde argues in an incredibly witty, elegant and above all convincing way none of this is a surprise, of course that Shakespeare s Sonnets are in fact dedicated to an unknown Elizabethan boy actor called Willie Hughes According to the theory, Hughes was in fact Shak It is not surprising that The Portrait of Mr W H., written shortly before The Picture o...
