Oscar Wilde In America | An Online Resource
By John Cooper

This is the blog of the non-commercial archive devoted to Oscar Wilde and his time in America, online at:
www.oscarwildeinamerica.org

The web site includes:

  • Oscar Wilde’s 1882 Lecture Tour of North America
  • A Detailed Analysis of American Quotations
  • The Sarony Photographs of Oscar Wilde
  • Oscar Wilde’s New York Arrival
    and much more…

A main focus of the web site is to verified the itinerary of the 1882 Lecture Tour, the detail of which presents considerable challenges and is necessarily an evolving project. Please provide any information you can to verify tour dates, venues, subjects or other details. I intend the site to be definitive and use only primary sources, and of course all contributions will be credited on the site.
