Illuminating essays on philsophy, literature, soceity, and art by one of Ireland's greatest wits

This illuminating collection includes "The Portrait of Mr. W. H.," "In Defense of Dorian Gray," reviews, and the writings fromIntentions (1891), including "The Decay of Lying," "Pen, Pencil, Poison," and "The Critic as Artist."
