Oscar Wilde is so witty and talented that I can always get fresh thoughts from his works. He seems rather concerned about the morality issue and tried to blur the distinction between "good" and "bad" of which the society had established definitions. As a language master with delicate tastes in living a life, Wilde presents himself in his works as an egoist who quests truth and beauty regardless of moral codes. He's deft at portraying ridiculously hypocritical characters but often gave them lines poignantly unveiling the true face of a "fogged" society.
